CHM 3218 / 5305; Summer 2017 1 Starting Points for CHM 3218 / CHM 5305 These are some of the key concepts that you should have mastered from CHM 3217 or CHM 2210 & 2211 or another previous course in organic chemistry. If you are unfamiliar with any of these, consult the relevant chapters in your text or see me as soon as possible. Since many of these concepts will be extended and applied to biological systems, it is important that you have a firm grasp on these before we cover too much material in CHM 3218 / CHM 5305. I. Alkanes. Conformational properties of linear alkanes. Ring strain. Conformational properties of cyclic alkanes. II. Stereoisomerism. Chirality and optical activity. Cahn-Ingold-Prelog ( R / S ) nomenclature for absolute configuration. Fischer projections. Diastereomers. III. Haloalkanes. Substitution by bimolecular reactions (S N 2 mechanism). Substitution by unimolecular reactions (S N 1 mechanism). Elimination by bimolecular reactions (E2 mechanism). Elimination by unimolecular reactions (E1 mechanism). IV. Alcohols and Ethers. Acid-base properties of alcohols. Alcohol and ether synthesis by substitution reactions. Epoxides. V. Alkenes. Structure and bonding. Alkene synthesis by elimination reactions. Alkene synthesis by alcohol dehydrations.

    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.
