Summer 2010 TENTATIVE SCHEDULE
Summer TENTATIVE OUTLINE of Course Topics
Complete list of chemical reactions from organic I and II, arranged chronologically, according to texbook chapters. Here is a summary of the chemical reactions from your textbook (Smith, 2nd edition), including those that you encountered last semester and those that you will learn & use this semester. These are the reactions that you will be expected to use to solve assigned & exam problems. I will point out any omissions or deletions as we proceed through the course.
SOLUTIONS to some of the problems in the INTRO course notes (from "Course Info" handout)
SOLUTIONS to misc. problems presented in lecture:
Chap. 9 (alcohols, ethers, & epoxides)
Chap. 18 (electrophilic aromatic substitution)
Chap. 21 (aldehydes and ketones - nucleophilic addition)
Chap. 22 (carboxylic acids & their derivatives - nucleophlic acyl substitution)
Chapters 23 & 24 (enolate chemistry & condensation reactions)
Chap. 25 (solution to Hofmann elimination problem from amine lectures)
Misc. MECHANISM & SYNTHESIS practice problems arranged in the order the chapter topics will be covered. NO solutions to these problems will be posted & you are encouraged to check your solutions with me. Links to practice spectral problems are given below.
Carbon NMR problem set
[SOLUTIONS to carbon NMR problem set]
Practice spectral problems (IR, NMR, molec. formula)
[SOLUTIONS to practice spectral problems (IR, NMR, molec. formula)]
MORE spectral practice problems (Here are a few more spectroscopy practice problems that I've dug out of my files. They are only for practice - they will not be collected or graded; however, you are encouraged to try them all and present your solutions to me.
SOLUTIONS to "MORE spectral practice problems"
NB: solutions to questions from old exams will not be provided; you are encouraged to try them and then check your answers with me. Also be aware that the order of lecture topics (and course content) changes from year to year, so the question topics on a past exam might not coincide with the question topics on the corresponding exam for this year.
Some old 1st exams
Some old 2nd exams
Some old 3rd exams
Smith's "Organic Chemistry" Online Learning Center This is a website provided by the publisher of your textbook. Here you will find multiple choice quizzes for each chapter of FIRST EDITION of the textbook. Just use the "Choose a Chapter" drop-down icon and then click on "Multiple Choice Quiz". After you take the quiz you submit your answers and your quiz is "graded" - if you answered a question incorrectly the correct answer will be given. NB: I took one of the quizzes and noticed an error in the chemical structure of the correct answer...so be aware that other errors may be present.
