You’d have the same problem buying thionyl chloride, I suspect. What did
you want to do with the POCl3? Was it a dehydration?

Hello,

The idea may be very useful, and the particular example cited is great. A
few weeks ago I wanted to buy 250 mL of POCl3, which is an import item here,
and I met quite a bureaucratic barrier. I had to sign all sort of
declarations through our Ministry of Industry and Trade to get the reagent.
My guess is that POCl3 is a starting material for the production of some
powerful "nerve gases", and there are strong international restrictions for
trading with the stuff.

All the best,

Jacob

Brilliant idea ... seconded.

Speaking from bitter experience, how about compiling some modern, reliable
replacements for common synthetic transformations? For instance, using
TFAA/pyridine instead of POCL3 for dehydration of amides? A sort of 'don't
do it like that, do this instead' list?

Mechanisms for name reactions, I believe, are the most useful reference for
advanced students of organic chemistry. Good luck on your project. Let me
know if you have any questions or need any further advice, All the Best,

Dear all,

In the past years we have made available for the community of organic
chemists a number of documents in different formats which we believe can
be
of general interest: e-books on nomenclature, mechanisms, exercises,
tables, etc.

We are now collecting ideas for the next year's downloads, so we would
love
to hear your suggestions about documents we could offer to organic
chemists.

Best regards,
