BRs for Undergrads - Borromean Rings (BRs) have long fascinated scholars of all disciplines for their wide cultural appeal and unique topology. Undergraduate students are no exception and so Graduate Student Cari Pentecost, working with Undergrad Nick Tangchaivang, has modified the reported experimental procedure (Science 2004, 304, 1308) for the total synthesis of molecular BRs in order to turn it into a lab instruction experiment suitable for undergraduate students to pursue in an organic chemistry laboratory course. See the May 2007 Issue of the Journal of Chemical Education, Vol 84, p 855 and the cover.
