If the stoichiometry of a reaction is known, its possible to identify the mole equivalent of each reactant and reagent so that the reaction can take place properly (sometimes workup reagents are also included, and some reagents may be in excess). List the molecular weights, density (only of liquids), amount added (usually in the reaction procedure), moles, molar equivalents (ratio vs. the limiting reagent), and any comments about safety or boiling point that might be necessary. This allows the calculation of the moles/amount of product by identifying the limiting reagent. The limiting reagent is said to have an equivalence of 1.0 and the other molar equivalents are calculated relative to that.
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.
