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!
- π-bond electrophile properties: molecular orbitals and reactivity
- Assessing reactivity of π-bond electrophile
- Ranking leaving groups for carbonyls
- Two detailed general mechanisms of π-bond electrophiles in basic conditions. This includes the following reactions: Gringard reactions, NaBH4/LiAlH4 reductions, cyanohydrides, saponification, transesterification, amide formations
- How to identify acidic conditions
- Two detailed general mechanisms of π-bond electrophiles in acidic conditions
- The above general mechanism will teach you how to approach the following reactions: imines, acetals, transesterification, hydrolysis and amide formations
- Where does the equilibrium favour for carbonyl reactions
- Learn all that's needed regarding reductive amination
