Recommended Problems

Always work the in-chapter problems at the time you learn the material. Work these problems with the book open. Working these problems serves to enhance your reading-comprehension of the chapter.

Try to solve the "study problems" without going back to the respective pages in the book! If you cannot solve the problem in this way, then go back to reading the respective chapter. Then try the problem again. ... Do not solve the problems with the solution manual open! The solution manual merely should provide a check as to whether your answers are correct.

21.43 (w/o "m", no polymers)
21.44 requires a bit of reading on your own about anhydride nomenclature
21.47 is about anhydrides and we did not talk about anhydrides in lecture because the chemistry is so very similar to the acyl chloride chemistry. The leaving group is a carboxylate instead of a chloride.
21.53 on aspirin!
21.58-59 check out the "Alar" controversy
