These processes are shown in reverse. The situations shown are so highly improbable that we would not expect to observe them in nature.
Endothermic Reaction  
Solid barium hydroxide octahydrate (Ba(OH)2*8H2O) and ammonium thiocyanate (NH4SCN) are mixed in a beaker, which is then placed on a few drops of water on a small board. The reaction that occurs is highly endothermic.

Thermodynamics : CompareEntropyQual (16 Variations)
Indicate which substance in each of the following pairs of substances you expect to have higher entropy. Assume that you have a mole of each substance and all substances are at the same temperature.
Thermodynamics : PredictEntropyChange (10 Variations)
For each of the following processes, indicate whether you expect the entropy change of the system to be positive or negative.
Thermodynamics : ThermoKinStability (4 Variations)
Compare white and grey tin, both of which exist as solid phases of tin near room temperature.

Phase Hof (kJ/mol) So (J/(K*mol))
white tin 0 51.5
grey tin -2.1 44.8

Which type of stability does each exhibit at 40 oC?

white tin {1:MULTICHOICE:kinetically stable#No, that's incorrect.~=thermodynamically stable#Correct!}

grey tin {1:MULTICHOICE:=kinetically stable#Correct!~thermodynamically stable#No, that's incorrect.}

Teaching Reaction Mechanisms Using the Curved Arrow Neglect (CAN) Method  John H. Penn and Abdulrahman G. Al-Shammari
A new method for teaching organic reaction mechanisms that concentrates on intermediate reaction structures and can be used in a computer-assisted instruction environment is found to significantly enhance student performance in drawing traditional reaction mechanisms.

Acid-Catalyzed Enolization of β-Tetralone  Brahmadeo Dewprashad, Anthony Nesturi, and Joel Urena
This experiment allows students to use 1H NMR to compare the rates of substitution of benzylic and non-benzylic a hydrogens of -tetralone and correlate their findings with predictions made by resonance theory.

Six Pillars of Organic Chemistry  Joseph J. Mullins
This article focuses on a core set of conceptselectronegativity, polar covalent bonding, inductive and steric effects, resonance, and aromaticitythe proper application of which can explain and predict a wide variety of chemical, physical, and biological properties of molecules and conceptually unite important features of general, organic, and biochemistry.
