These notes are solely from 9/4 class because of the Labor Day holiday. In it, we covered electronegativity, bond polarity, formal charges, and some resonance. I included some additional information I found useful from the textbook.
This is a study guide for Exam 1, which highlights carbon geometry/hybridization, skeletal structures, bond polarity, resonance rules, formal charges, Bronsted-Lowry acids/bases, Lewis acids/bases, alkanes, alkyls, and naming molecules.
These notes cover class 9/18 as our first exam was 9/16. The main objectives for this set of notes were naming alkanes, conformations, and Newman projections. Please forgive that these notes are handwritten, as I had no time to copy down the notes on top of my other course materials this week.
These notes cover classes 9/23 and 9/26, which include topics such as Guache/Anti conformations in Newman projections; naming cyclohexanes; cis/trans isomers; stereoisomers; chair conformation of cyclohexane; axial/equatorial positions in chair conformation; stability of cycloalkanes.
These notes cover topics for Exam 2. They include Newman projections, naming cycloalkanes, cis-trans isomerism, chair conformation of cyclohexane, different kinds of strain, stereochemistry, chirality, and assigning R/S chirality.
These notes cover classes on 9/30 and 10/2. Main topics include stability of cycloalkanes, chirality, stereogenic centers, Cahn-Ingold-Prelog systems, enantiomers, and diastereomers.
These notes cover 10/9 class including topics such as meso compounds, disubstituted cycloalkanes, optically active/inactive, alkenes, and E/Z identification.
These notes cover class 10/16 and 10/21. Topics include stability of alkenes, electrophilic addition, regiospecificity, hydride shifts, alkyl shifts, dehydrogrenation, dehydration, halogenation, halohydrins, oxymercuration, hydroboration, hydrogenation, and reduction
These notes repeat the section on organic reactions, as Max was not satisfied by the level of depth the stand in gave.
These notes cover classes 10/30, 11/4, and 11/6. Topics include ozonolysis, oxidation, reduction, naming alkenes, naming cycloalkenes, naming alkynes, adding HX and X-X to alkynes, geminal, vicinal, keto-enol tautomerism, hydration of alkynes, hydroboration-oxidation, reduction of alkynes, radicals, alkyne acidity, and acetylide anions.
These notes cover: alkylation, polarity of C-X bonds, radical halogenation, allylic bromination, allylic radicals, grignard reagents, organometallic coupling reactions, gilman reagents, substitution and elimination reactions.
These notes cover classes 11/18 and 11/20. Topics include SN2 reactions, bad leaving groups and how to fix them, solvent requirements, SN1 reactions, how to push a reaction to SN2, and elimination reactions
Hi these notes cover all the topics Max posted on blackboard, with the exception of IR spectroscopy as we haven't covered that in class yet. Good luck!
These notes cover the last classes since 11/25, including IR spectroscopy which I didn't cover in the study guide.
