This document and other postings on the web site have the answers to many questions that you will want answered during the semester. Please read the documents carefully, print them, and refer to them as needed, before you send an email. If you send an email in which you ask a question that is answered in these documents; the reply will be to tell you to read the relevant documents. If you send another one, three points will be subtracted from your total for each such email. Sorry to be difficult, but we want to answer every email. It became almost impossible to do so last semester because the volume of emails (several thousand) was extremely large, in part because some people sent emails with questions that have already been answered in documents such as this one. Thank you for your cooperation. Our experience has been that many students do not read emails. In order to encourage you to read this document carefully, a question that will be given on the first exam is hidden in it. ORGANIC CHEMISTRY 308 SPRING 2009 Lecturers: Dr. Robert Boikess (Course Coordinator), Dr. Daniel Seidel, Dr. Patrick O‟Connor Preview: Chemistry 308 is harder than Chemistry 307 . There are more numerous and complicated reactions to learn, to understand (mechanism), and to be able to use (synthesis). There is some sophisticated theory. Many of you, who did well in Chem 307, were still disappointed in your grade. A higher grade in Chem 308 certainly compensates for a lower one in 307 in the eyes of professional and graduate schools. The opposite is not true. On the other hand, many of you who just made it should consider a D or a low C or a grade below 100 on the 307 final exam as a wake-up call to be taken very seriously. If you don‟t do something a bit differently, especially about learning, understanding, and using the reactions, you may not make it in Chem 308. General: All the course materials for Chemistry 308 were already used in Chemistry 307 last semester. If you did not take Chemistry 307 you probably should purchase the entire package from the

bookstore. The text is Organic Chemistry by Vollhardt and Schore, 5 th edition (Rutgers Custom edition) and accompanying Study Guide. In addition, you need a WebAssign registration card , molecular model kit, and i- Clicker . The price we have negotiated for this entire package , which is available at the bookstores, is very favorable. It is unlikely that you can do better even if you buy some of the items used or on line. So comparison shop. The first three pages of your textbook may contain information about Chemistry 307-308 in a previous year at Rutgers. Some of this information is no longer accurate. Do not use it. Accurate information for this semester will be transmitted to you by email and will be posted on the web page (see below). ALERT:
