In this lesson our instructor talks about substitution reactions. She starts out by talking about substitution reactions, SN2substitution, rate of SN2, and SN2 energy versus POR diagram. Then, she talks about SN2 transition state and kinetics. She also discusses stereochemistry of SN2 and a summary on it. Then, she talks about predicting products, SN1 substitution mechanism, SN1 mechanism, Sn1 kinetics, SN1 energy versus POR diagram, and stereochemistry of SN1. After that, she does a summary of SN1 and discusses whether one should pick SN1 or SN2 mechanisms. Finally, she talks about SN1 carbonation rearrangements, leaving groups, synthesis problem, and nucleophilicity.
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.
