    How to pass organic chemistry (or even get an A): Professor survey results

    How to pass organic chemistry (or even get an A): Professor survey results

    We surveyed a bunch of organic chemistry professors on how to pass organic chemistry, or even get an A....they told us the best ways to study, the ways to avoid and gave some helpful hints.  We go over it all here. Want to get your free gifts?  Go to http://www.aceorganicchem.com/free.htm

    Free Organic Chemistry Course: Episode 1-14 How to Ace Organic Chemistry Mechanisms with EASE

    Free Organic Chemistry Course: Episode 1-14 How to Ace Organic Chemistry Mechanisms with EASE

    In this episode, we introduce the EASE method, a system for determining the mechanism or prodcut of almost any organic chemistry reaction.  What we show you here is an abreviated version of the method.  To get the entire two hour course for free, just go to http://www.aceorganicchem.com/free-course.html.

     

    The EASE method has four steps:

    1) E is for Electrophile/Nucleophile: label all of your nucleophiles and electrophiles. 

    2) A is for Acid/Base: Find the acids and bases, label them, and move the proton if it is a strong acid.

    3) S is for Sterics: Is there steric hinderance?  If so, label it and decide if it influences the reaction.

    4) E is for Electron Flow:  Once all of the players are labeled, move the electrons from nucleophile to electrophile.  

     

    We show you how to impliment the method, who the players are and we go through some practice problems.  It is a great tool for all organic chemistry students.  Give it a try.

    Organic Chemistry Help Episode 1-13: Alpha Alkylations

    Organic Chemistry Help Episode 1-13: Alpha Alkylations

    In this episode, we look at reactions that you can use if you need to alkylate a carbon atom which is alpha to a carbonyl.  We talk about beta-di-ketone alkylation, enamines, and tautomers.  Also, our first sponsor is Learn More, Study Less Videos.  We have a link to their stuff at http:www.aceorganicchem.com/studyless.html

    Grignard Organometallics: Organic Chemistry Help Episode 1-12

    Grignard Organometallics: Organic Chemistry Help Episode 1-12

    In theis episode we go pretty in-depth into the Grignard reagent.  A little lecture followed by five examples on the virtual whiteboard.  In our site of the week, we proudly/arrogently talk about the new class notes bank that we created for organic chemistry students.  It has over 70 sets of class notes from around the US and allows you to vote on the ones you like.  Found at organic chemistry tutorials, we think it is pretty helpful.  For more organic chemistry help, please see our main site.

    EAS Tricks: Episode 1-10 of organic chemistry help

    EAS Tricks: Episode 1-10 of organic chemistry help

    In this episode, we go to the virtual whiteboard to discuss the resonance reasons behind o,p and meta selectivity in EAS.  Then, we start the presentation and see three different tricks that your professor might try to pull on your final exam and how to get around them.  Finally, we get to a pretty fun website that melds comic books and the periodic table.  As always, you can find more resources to help you at www.aceorganicchem.com
