The demand for excellence in industrial synthesis will only accelerate from this point forward. There is a tremendous amount changing in and around the chemistry eco-system that will present new opportunities and will necessitate new ways of thinking about chemistry. Holistic solutions in biology will require evaluation of all types of molecules, both traditional small molecules as well as large biomolecules, and synthetic chemists will need to be comfortable moving back and forth into the synthesis of alternate modalities.
Big-data chemistry is on the horizon, and robots and machine-learning algorithms will increasingly help guide synthetic chemists through the toughest synthesis problems. And, of course, chemists will continue to invent new synthetic paradigms that can evolve the types of structures that can be efficiently prepared. Biocatalysis and photoredox catalysis, for example, have positively impacted what we can make today, and innovative new synthetic paradigms will continuously emerge, challenging chemists to incorporate these new approaches into their synthesis planning.
It is a bright time to be a synthetic chemist, with tremendous room to learn and to innovate and many important unsolved problems waiting for creative synthetic efforts. Applied industrial synthesis will continue to grow and evolve, and The Journal of Organic Chemistry looks forward to celebrating the progress!

The electrons in elements are assumed to be stationary on the basis of chemical evidence, disregarding for the present the physical evidence for rotation or vibration of electrons. Eleven postulates are stated, and the evidence in support of each is enumerated in detail. These postulates are: 1 Electrons in the atoms of the inert gases are arranged about the nucleus in pairs symmetrically placed with respect to a plane passing through the nucleus equatorial plane ; they are symmetrical with respect to a polar axis perpendicular to the plane and pawing through the nucleus.
Since the electrons occur in pairs symmetrical to the equatorial plane there are no electrons in this plane. The mean radii of the shells form a series 1, 2, 3, 4, and the effective areas are in the ratios The first shell thus contains 2 cells, the second 8, the third 18 and the fourth All the inner shells must have their full quota of electrons before the outside shell can contain any.
No cell in the outside layer can contain two electrons until all the other cells in the layer contain at least one.
This probably means that there is a magnetic attraction Parson magneton theory which nearly counteracts the electrostatic repulsion. But when the number of electrons increases, especially when the layer is nearly complete, the electrostatic repulsion of the underlying electrons and those of the outside shell becomes predominant.
By means of these 7 postulates L. In order to predict the physical properties of the elements, four more postulates are necessary. The smaller the atomic number the weaker the external field. A stable pair may also be held by a a single H nucleus, b 2 H nuclei, c a hydrogen nucleus and the kernel of another atom, d 2 atomic kernels very rare. Any atom with atomic number less than 20 which has more than 3 electrons in the outside layer tends to take up enough electrons to complete its octet.
The greater the charge on the kernel the stronger is this tendency. One octet may share 1, 2, 3, or 4 pairs of electrons with 1, 2, 3, or 4 other octets. One or more pairs of electrons in an octet may be shared by the corresponding number of H nuclei. No electron can be shared by more than 2 octets. Following the statement and explanation of these postulates there are separate paragraphs dealing with their application to about 50 substances or classes of substances.

Aryl, methyl, and carboxyalkyl derivatives of Group VIII metal salts, particularly Pd, Rh, and Ru salts, react with olefins to produce aryl-, methyl-, or carboxyalkyl-substituted olefins and reduced metal salt or metal. The reaction may be made catalytic with respect to the metal salt by employing CuCl2 or CuCl2, air, and HCl as reoxidants. The reaction is insensitive to O and water and, therefore, provides an extremely convenient method for the synthesis of a wide variety of olefinic compds.
