These slides are part of a talk to school teachers. They were designed to showcase some of the applications of organic chemistry, the range of natural and synthetic products. I'm not sure how much use it is without my commentary but, as always, it seems a waste to leave it on my hard drive. The second half gave a overview of chirality and stereoisomers as this topic often causes problems with students. This second half owes a lot to an excellent paper by Robert Gawley (J. Chem. Ed. 2005, 82, 1009) and just has prettier papers. This version of the talk includes a section I removed when presenting (due to time) on artificial sweeteners.
