The Aromaticity of Pericyclic Reaction Transition States  Henry S. Rzepa
Presents an approach that combines two fundamental concepts in organic chemistry, chirality and aromaticity, into a simple rule for stating selection rules for pericyclic reactions in terms of achiral Hckel-aromatic and chiral Mbius-aromatic transition states.

Quantitative Determination of the Rotameric Energy Differences of 1,2-Dihaloethanes Using Raman Spectroscopy. An Experimental Project for the Physical Chemistry Laboratory  Mark D. Young, Natalia C. Borjemscaia, and Brian D. Wladkowski
The effects of structure and environment on the rotameric energy difference between gauche and trans conformations of 1,2-disubtitutedethanes are determined quantitatively through the use of Raman spectroscopy. Two 1,2-dihaloethanes (chloro- and bromo-) were analyzed in the condensed phase (pure liquid, carbon tetrachloride, and acetonitrile solutions). Since the gauche conformation of these molecules has a nonzero dipole, dissolving the compounds in solvents with increasing dielectric constant causes a stabilization of the gauche conformation, thus decreasing the absolute energy difference between the rotamers. The major factor governing the intrinsic stability is that of steric hindrance.

A Set of Hands-On Exercises on Conformational Analysis  Silvina C. Pellegrinet and Ernesto G. Mata
This article describes a set of comprehensive exercises on conformational analysis that employs a hands-on approach by the use of molecular modeling kits. In addition, the exercises provide illustrations of other topics such as nomenclature, functional groups, and isomerism, and introduce some notions of chirality.

Hexane 1 (GCMP)  David M. Whisnant
Hexane 1: this is a resource in the collection "General Chemistry Multimedia Problems". Hexane, a liquid hydrocarbon with the formula C6H14, burns when ignited in the presence of oxygen. In this problem we will observe videos of this combustion reaction. General Chemistry Multimedia Problems ask students questions about experiments they see presented using videos and images. The questions asked apply concepts from different parts of an introductory course, encouraging students to decompartmentalize the material.
