In this lecture you will learn about Organic Structures, Isomers, and Functional Groups. You will start by delving into the Saturated Hydrocarbons C-1 to C-4 which make up Acrylics and Isomers. Then, you will look at Acyclic Saturated Hydrocarbons C-5 Isomers before learning about Alkenes and Ring Compounds. Then, you will look at the Geometric Isomers of Alkenes as well as Trans and Cis configurations. Following are Optical Isomers as well as a variety of Functional Groups such as Alcohols, Carboxylic Acids, Esters, Ethers, Aldehydes, and Ketones. Lastly, you will learn about Amines, the Amide Group, as well as Peptides and Proteins.
formulas: CnH2n+2 saturated; CnH2n
has one double bond or one ring
hydrocarbons have isomers for n = 4 and above
isomers for n = 5, 6 etc. both saturated and unsaturated
isomers: different arrangements about double bonds
isomers: non-identical with mirror image; opposite effects on
functional groups: OH alcohol; COOH carboxylic acid; COC -
ether; COOC ester; CO in aldehydes and ketones
nitrogenous functional groups RNH amines; CONR amide as found in
peptides and proteins
Organic Structures, Isomers, Functional Groups
