Chemistry 109B Spring 2016 MWF 4 pm, Chem 1179 Donald H. Aue Chemistry Rm. 2134, [email protected] Office Hours : M,W F 3 pm, questions by e-mail, or e-mail to make appointment Review sessions : I will lead review sessions probably from 2-3:30 pm the Sunday before each exam in Chem 1179. Text : Bruice, Organic Chemistry, 7 th , 6 th , 5 th , or 3rd or 4 th Ed., and study guide and solutions manual (all in Res Book Room under 109AB) Suggested: Klein, Organic Chemistry as a Second Language, Wiley ISBN 0471-27235-3. There is a Mastering Chemistry supplement newly available for this text. It features web-based and graded homework assignments. Another good source of on-line problems is Sapling Learning, saplinglearning.com . I will not be requiring graded homework, but you might find it a useful self-graded supplement. Suggested supplemental text: Klein, Organic Chemistry as a Second Language, Wiley ISBN 0471-27235-3. An Organic Mol. model set is good, see Google for about $15-30+. I’ll also set out some models for you to look at in the Chem computer room, Chem Rm. 1153 and have listed some web sites below that show rotatable 3D pictures of some molecules. Grading : 2 midterm exams(100 pts each) Mon. Apr 18 and Mon. May 16, Final Exam (as in Schedule of Classes, no exceptions) Fri, June 10, 4-7 pm (200 pts). There may also be some 10-point announced quizzes (lowest quiz score will be dropped) to help get you ready for the midterms. Be sure you are available on the exam dates. Make-up midterms will only be given except for a very good reason with prior permission. In my experience, for the regular 109A, class averages should be approximately 60-65% and letter grades will be on a scale with C’s(C-,C,C+) starting at approximately 55-60%, B’s 67%, A’s 79%. This scale may be adjusted somewhat according to my judgment. The final exam will be divided into 3 parts. Those parts covering MT1 or MT2 will be averaged with the original MT grade if that improves your original midterm score. Use a mechanical pencil with a 0.5mm or 0.7mm lead for exams and an eraser. No Calculators, cell phones, etc. Chapter Sections Assigned from 7 th [6 th Edition]: Some review of 109A [Lewis structures, 3D orbital diagrams, pKa, “effects”,bond dissociation energies; See related GauchoSpace pages and my old 109A exams] Diels-Alder Reaction: 8.19 Radicals: 13.1-13.9 [12.1-12.9] Reactions of Alcohols, etc.: 11.1-11.11 [10.1-10.11, 20.7] Organometallic Compounds: 12.1-12.3 [11.1-11.4] Carbonyl Compounds I: 16.1-16.23 [17.1-17.23] Carbonyl Compounds II: 17.1-17.19 [18.1-18.17, 20.1-20.3, 20.5] Carbonyl Compounds III: 18.1-18.22 [19.1-19.22] Aromaticity: 19.1-19.24 ?[15.1-15.20, 16.1-16.14?] Problem sets : Work all of the problems within chapter sections assigned and related ones at the end of each chapter, answers are in back of the text and the study guide.

"Before using Course Hero my grade was at 78%. By the end of the semester my grade was at 90%. I could not have done it without all the class material I found."

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
