I am a newbie in the organic synthesis. When I do experiments, I get difficulties to determine and explain why the reaction happens at this position and not happen at other positions on organic reactant, and which is the main product,...
I am trying to have deep understanding about reaction mechanism. I think I have to draw exactly the resonance structure of the reactant,know the electron rich and poor position, understand the reaction mechanism.
Are these I mention above enough and what is the best site to study about these?
