Blue Bottle, Red and Blue Bottle  
Color changes are caused by reactions of oxygen in the air with chemicals in a solution. The colors fade over time, but can be regenerated by shaking the flask containing the solution.

Induction by Iron(II) of the Oxidation of Iodide by Dichromate  
Acidic aqueous solutions containing dichromate and iodide ions are mixed with no reaction. The addition of a solution of iron(II) ion induces the rapid formation of brown triiodide ion.

Kinetics : IntermediateInMech (15 Variations)
Suppose that for the reaction of nitrogen dioxide and carbon monoxide
NO2 + CO NO + CO2

the following mechanism has been proposed at high temperatures:
(1) NO2 + CO O-N-O-C-O (slow)
(2) O-N-O-C-O NO + CO2 (fast)

"It Gets Me to the Product": How Students Propose Organic Mechanisms  Gautam Bhattacharyya and George M. Bodner
Because practicing organic chemists use the arrow-pushing formalism in situations that are far removed from the simple contexts in which they are first presented, this study probed how students enrolled in a first-semester, graduate-level organic chemistry course approached the task of writing the mechanisms for two- to four-step reactions that lacked the typical cues that bring common mechanisms to mind. This article focuses on the students' solutions and discusses possible limitations of their strategies.

Organizing Organic Reactions: The Importance of Antibonding Orbitals  David E. Lewis
It is proposed that unoccupied molecular orbitals arbitrate much organic reactivity, and that they provide the basis for a reactivity-based system for organizing organic reactions. Such a system is proposed for organizing organic reactions according to principles of reactivity, and the system is discussed with examples of the frontier orbitals involved.

Pericyclic Reactions: FMO Approach-Abstract of Issue 9904M  Albert W. M. Lee, C. T. So, C. L. Chan, and Y. K. Wu
Pericyclic Reactions: FMO Approach is a program for Macintosh computers in which the frontier molecular orbital approaches to electrocyclic and cycloaddition reactions are animated. The bonding or antibonding interactions of the frontier molecular orbital(s) determine whether the reactions are thermally or photochemically allowed or forbidden.
