Slicing and Dicing Molecular Rings

This post is contributed by John Spevacek, an industrial polymer chemist and the author of the blog “It’s the Rheo Thing” Nature had a report last week of a nice new catalytic procedure for preparation of spiroacetals - bicyclic compounds bridged through a single acetal carbon. When I read the report, I was surprised that [...]
