Organic chemistry topic order for Chem 1AA3 – 2005 Here is a brief overview of the order of book sections we will be covering. It is subject to change. Notice that in terms of functional group reactions we will be working backwards through the book. There are many cross references, as the same reaction can be seen as a reaction of X(reactant) or a synthesis of Y(product), depending on your focus; (shown below with the 2245 symbol). 1. Hybridization (sp, sp 2 , sp 3 only) and valence bond theory ( σ and π bonding) a. Silberberg: Sections 11.1 and 11.2 2. Functional groups (table 15.5) and naming a. Silberberg: Section 15.2 ( NOT chirality, NOT aromatic rings) b. Silberberg: Section 15.4 c. Green book: Chapter 2 ( NOT section 2.12) + section 6.1 3. Intermolecular forces, structure-property relationships a. Green book: sections 2.1, 3.1, 4.1, 5.1, 6.2, 7.1, 8.1, 8.2 b. Fatty acids supplementary notes i. GB §2.4 – conformers ii. GB §2.4 – geometrical isomers c. Degrees of unsaturation and Geometrical isomerism (GB: §2.5 – 2.8) (alkenes,
