Now that the Fall 2020 semester has mostly wrapped up, we will be taking a month off from posting on our Teach the Mechanism blog to enjoy this year’s winter festivities as safely as we can.

During this brief hiatus, though, we will still be open to blog submissions for the Spring 2021 semester. Even though most of us remain uncertain about what next semester will hold, we would love to hear from our community. If you or your colleagues use Joel’s book and have any teaching insights about organic chemistry that you would like to share with us, please reach out to Selin at

Thank you so much to everyone for reading our posts! Until we meet again in the new year, we wish you and your loved ones a healthy and restful holiday season.
