Organic Chemistry Confidential Semester 2

Unit 13 is a crystal-clear and efficient explanation of how NMR and IR spectroscopy work and how to use them to solve integrated structural problems. This can help you to do very well in lab.  Conjugation, aromaticity and electrophilic aromatic substitution (Units 15 and 16) are all connected by a few key concepts which simplifies them. The core of semester 2 is carbonyl chemistry (Units 17-20). It’s an apparently gargantuan area but you will discover that it has just a few unifying mechanisms. This shrinks it down to a manageable area you can excel in with a fraction of the effort you would use to try and memorize the individual reactions.
