An Introduction to the Study of Organic Chemistry
Part-1: The first three chapters of this text cover a variety of topics that you need to be familiar with in order to start a study of the reactions and synthesis of organic compounds.
Electrophilic Addition Reactions, Stereochemistry, and Electron Delocalization
Part-2 discusses the reactions of compounds whose functional group is a carboncarbon double bond or a carboncarbon triple bond. Part-2 also examines stereochemistry, thermodynamics and kinetics, and electron delocalization.
Substitution and Elimination Reactions
Part 3 ( Chapters 9, 10 , and 11) discuss the reactions of compounds that have an electron-withdrawing atom or groupa potential leaving groupbonded to an sp carbon.
Part 3 ( Chapter 12) introduces you to organometallic compounds, a class of nucleophiles that can participate in substitution reactions.
Part 3 ( Chapter 13) discusses the reactions of alkanes, which are compounds that do not have a leaving group but that can undergo a substitution reaction under extreme conditions.
Identification of Organic Compounds
Part-4: In Chapter 14 you will learn about mass spectrometry, infrared spectroscopy, and UV/Vis spectroscopy.
Chapter 15 discusses nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy , which provides information about the carbonhydrogen framework of an organic compound.
Part 5 focus on the reactions of compounds that contain a carbonyl group.
Part 6 discuss the reactions of aromatic compounds. In Chapter 8, you learned about the structure of benzene, the most common aromatic compound, and why it is classified as aromatic.
Bioorganic Compounds DNA
Part-7: Chapters 21 through 26 discuss the chemistry of bioorganic compoundsorganic compounds found in living systems.
Special Topics in Organic Chemistry
Chapter 27 discusses polymers synthesized by chemists. Chapter 28 discusses pericyclic reactions. In this chapter, you will learn how the conservation of orbital symmetry theory explains the relationships between the reactant, the product, and the reaction conditions in a pericyclic reaction.
