Using CHEMnetBASE and Organic Syntheses to locate information on an organic compound

Guided exercise used by students working in pairs typically in a computer equipped classroom. Each student completes an exercise which is reviewed by an instructor. Students retain exercises. During the hour session students are expected to complete the first two pages. Many solve the organic "chemystery" of journal citations on the third page by using a library catalog, CASSI Search Tool, or a Web search engine, for example Google.
