Addition reactions of conjugated dienes
In this tutorial, Jay shows the possible products for an addition to a conjugated diene and how the end product can be controlled by changing the reaction conditions.
In this tutorial, Jay shows the mechanism, stereochemistry, and regiochemistry for the classic Diels-Alder reaction.
Molecular orbital theory
In this tutorial, Jay introduces molecular orbital (MO) theory and shows how MO theory explains the experimental observations of the Diels-Alder reaction.
