CHM2120/2520: Carbonyl Chemistry (Part 2)
- Setting you up for synthesis questions using “bond scar” technique
- Key reactions that you must know for synthesis are listed and explained
- Learn to modify functional groups with various reagents
- Watch how an expert breaks down the approach to synthesis questions
- Synthesis type questions from simple to complex
- A mix of substitution, elimination and organic chemistry 1 reactions and how to differentiate between them!
- Lots of midterm/exam-like questions to reinforce the concepts for Midterm 2!
November 23, 2020 5:30 PM – 9:00 PM
IR and 1H NMR
- How to read and extract information from IR spectra
- Apply 1H NMR concepts such as chemical shift, equivalence, integration and multiplicity to common midterm questions (this includes simple coupling-tree diagrams)
- How to distinguish molecules using 1H NMR
- Learn to draw 1H NMR spectra from a organic molecule
- A list of “1H NMR peak patterns” to help you identify structures!
- Learn a technique to putting fragments together for final compound identification (1H NMR)
- 1- hour worth of practice questions on IR and 1H NMR from past midterms and problem sets!
ABDULLAH AKBAR, PhD
Abdullah is a top-rated tutor with 7+ years of teaching experience.
As a recent PhD graduate from the University of Ottawa, he has worked along with many of the CHM 2120/2520 Professors. His lesson plans will always begin with must-know fundamental concepts and end with examples from previous midterms and final exam questions.
