Capilano College Dr. Tony Cusanelli Chemistry 110 Study Guide Some insight into what you need to know for the organic chemistry part of the exam. (Everything!!) Bonding in organic compounds; distinguish between sp, sp 2 , and sp 3 hybridizations, σ and π bonds, bond angles and shapes of molecules. Name ( IUPAC system) alkanes, cycloalkanes, alkenes, cycloalkenes, and alkynes with alkyl/halogen substituents from structural formulas (condensed, line-angle, or 3D perspective formulas with line-wedge-dash). Draw structural formulas from names. Represent molecules using full structural formulas (Lewis structures), condensed formulas, line-angle formulas, and perspective formulas. Draw all the constitutional isomers from a given molecular formula. Identify which alkenes or cycloalkanes could show geometric (cis/trans) isomerism and name them using the cis/trans system or the E/Z system. Draw Newman projections of non-cyclic compounds and identify the most stable / least stable

Unformatted text preview: conformers. Distinguish between anti and gauche conformers. Draw chair and boat conformers of cyclohexane; distinguish axial and equatorial bonds; identify most stable / least stable conformers. Identify 1 , 2 , and 3 carbon atoms, hydrogen atoms, alcohols, alkyl halides, amines, etc. Identify and name the functional groups: alkene, alkyne, halo, amine, alcohol, ether, aldehyde, ketone, carboxylic acid, ester, etc. Identify stereocenters or chirality centers (stereogenic carbon atoms); designate absolute configuration around a stereocenter using R/S system. Determine the maximum number of stereoisomers for a molecule (i.e. 2 n ). Identify (and know the terms): enantiomers, diastereomers, and meso compounds. Use your knowledge of intermolecular attractions to predict physical properties of organic molecules....
