Latest piece for the RSC in the August issue of Chemistry Worldâ€¦
The disconnection is pretty obvious, even though it required non-trivial reagent selection. Nice synthesis of naphthofuran.
Hate to break the stream but I had a question. Is it alright if I use an “organic lett.” template to write a research proposal.
I think it would be weird, and perhaps even presumptuous, to turn in a research proposal that appeared in the format of an OrgLett paper. Applying for an ACS graduate fellowship requires writing a mini-review in an OrgLett template, but that is a very special case. Your research proposal can and should have a very specific and consistent style–you could even borrow heavily from the OrgLett template. Just don’t use it outright. And definitely don’t use those red breaks!
