Organic Chemistry 1 - Chemistry CoachIntroduction to Organic Chemistry: bonding theory, chemical and physical properties, structure and reactivities, isomerism, stereochemistry. Introduction to substitution, addition, and elimination reactions. Methodology for retrosynthetic analysis.
Reactions of alkanes are studied in this chapter: IUPAC nomenclature, name and properties of alkanes, chemical equivalence, primary, secondary, tertiary, quaternary structures in chemistry, radicals and their stability, radical chain reactions, halogenation of alkanes (mechanism, products and selectivity)
The reactivity of alcohols, ethers and epoxides are studied in this chapter: typical reactions of alcohols (deprotonation, substitution, elimination, oxidation), preparation of alkoxides, nucleophilic substitutions of alcohols, dehydration of alcohols, carbocation rearrangements, reactivity of ethers, epoxide opening
