Presentation Write-Up and Poster Presentation

The goal of this exercise is to learn how to search online for information and develop your own ideas to be
creative, and apply the knowledge and techniques learned in Organic Chemistry I/II.

1. Presentation Write-up (30 pts) – Submitted in Brightspace

Topic: Current Potential Drug Therapeutic for COVID-19

2. Poster Presentation (40 pts) – Submitted in Brightspace

Topic: Derivatization of Potential Drug Therapeutic for COVID-19

Presentation Write-Up
(30 pts)

Due: 7/27/21

Search online 2 relevant articles (peer-reviewed journals) to support discussion of the topic. Do not copy/paste
(or plagiarize) contents or texts (except molecular structures) from the source, but explain in your own words
the information. Please submit as a pdf file on or before due date.

Format of Write-up: typewritten, 5 pages maximum, double space, font (Calibri, 12), Sentences should be
grammatically correct, in the passive voice and third person. Avoid using personal pronouns such as I, me, my,

A. Current Potential Drug Therapeutic for COVID-19

Search for 1 therapeutic drug that could be a potential treatment for COVID-19. The drug should be an organic
molecule and not an antibody nor a protein.

a.) Please email me your choice of drug therapeutic before starting. No duplicates (first come, first serve). You
will search for another drug therapeutic if one of your classmates already chose the molecule that you
selected before you.

b.) Copy/paste the structure of the drug.
c.) Describe its potential mechanism of therapeutic action based on a 2020 or 2021 published article.
d.) Search for another article describing experimental details of a synthetic step (possibly from a multi-step

synthesis) of your chosen drug therapeutic. This article could have been published before 2020. An original
paper is not a review paper (this does not have experimental details).

e.) Copy/paste that one synthesis step.
f.) Describe the experimental procedure of that one step in your own words (passive voice), explain the

reactions, and the use of the reagents.
g.) Draw out the mechanism of this one synthesis step by using curved arrows (can be handwritten).
h.) Attach the entire published synthesis article being described at the end of your paper.
Note: Know how to append a picture/diagram to create 1 whole document instead of emailing multiple pictures,

and this will make your paper look more professional. You can also attach the original article (1 synthesis
paper) and consolidate it with your write-up as 1 pdf file.

Criteria (Rubrics) for Grading Write-up:
1.) Structure of Drug (4 pts)
2.) Mechanism of therapeutic action against COVID-19 (5 pts)
3.) One synthesis step selected with the original paper attached with this
