Our paper on the reaction of several sugar-derived alcohols with p-acetamidobenzene-sulfonyl azide, which includes a convenient one-pot alcohol to azide conversion, has appeared in the journal Tetrahedron Letters.

An article on a useful lab exercise based on the SN2 reaction is currently under review at the Journal of Chemical Education.
