In this lesson our instructor talks about carboxylic acid derivatives. First, she talks about preparation of carboxylic acid derivatives, overall order of electrophilicity and leaving group. Second, she discusses carboxylic acid derivative interconversion, preparation of acid halides, preparation of anhydrides, preparation of esters, preparation of amides and reactions of carboxylic acid derivatives with nucleophiles. Then she lectures on hydride reductions, hydride reduction of amides, reaction of carboxylic acid derivative with organometallics, special hydride nu: reagents, and addition of organocuprate to acid chlorides.
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.
