Maybe I'm just cranky, or cranky on the subject of design and presentation, but this sort of chemical structure drawing rubs me the wrong way. I'd have a much better chance of understanding the transformation without all the colored dots; they don't seem to be adding anything.
And while I'm in get-off-my-lawn mode, the similar trendlet of coloring the interiors of ring structures annoys me, too. Nicolaou seems to enjoy doing this (here's a recent example), and I can't say that it adds much to my understanding.
OK, Andy Rooney mode off. For now.
