In this lesson our instructor talks about elimination reactions. First, she talks about elimination reactions of E2 mechanism and stereochemistry of E2. Then she talks about regiochemistry of E2, alkene stability, and SN2 versus E2 mechanisms. After that, she goes on to discuss E1 kinetics, E1 stereochemistry, and carbocation rearrangements. Finally, she ends the lecture with examples on predicting the product for SN2 versus E2.
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.
