In this lesson our instructor talks bout alkane structures. First, she talks about nomenclature of alkanes, molecular formula and degrees of unsaturation. Second, she talks about physical properties of alkanes, conformations of alkanes, conformations of ethane, conformations of butanes, and cycloalkanes. She finishes the lecture with a discussion on drawing a cyclohexane chair, cylohexan chair flips, and cyclohexane conformation example.
Lecture Slides are screen-captured images of important points in the lecture. Students can download and print out these lecture slide images to do practice problems as well as take notes while watching the lecture.
This is the actual book that Dr. Laurie Starkey teaches out of as a professor, and manages to be both clear and yet precise. The book presents a logical, systematic approach to understanding the principles of organic reactivity and the mechanisms of organic reactions.
This book includes all of the concepts typically covered in an organic chemistry textbook, but special emphasis is placed on skills development to support these concepts. This emphasis upon skills development will provide students with a greater opportunity to develop proficiency in the key skills necessary to succeed in organic chemistry.
