Chem 112A: Study Outline for Exam I The following outline lists the concepts and tools that I hope you will retain from the Frst portion of the class. The exam questions will test some of the topics that are listed below and will be based entirely on the lecture notes. Although there are no speciFc reading assignments in the Loudon textbook, reviewing Chapters 1-4 (plus a few of the reactions at the beginning of Chapter 5) will be helpful. Please note that the material presented in the Tuesday evening laboratory lectures will not be covered on this exam. The exam will be held in class from 8:00 (sharp!) to 9:30 am on Thursday, October 7th. You may use model kits if you would like, so long as they are fully disassembled when the exam begins. No calculators will be necessary. You are strongly encouraged to take the exam in pencil, although that is up to you! The following two review sessions will be held to help you with your questions: Monday 5-7 pm in 10 Evans Hall Tuesday 5-6 pm in 1 LeConte I will also hold my normal ofFce hours from 3-5 pm on Monday in the Bixby Commons. There will be no laboratory classes this week. Good Luck Studying! -MB± 1. The Structures of Organic Molecules a. Know how to interpret organic “line structures” by understanding where the implied hydrogen atoms are located. b. Be able to identify the organic functional groups that are listed on the handout from class (²ash cards may help). c. Be able to give a basic description of “electronegativity” and be able to relate its value to the position of an ele- ment in the periodic table. You do not have to know any of the speciFc numbers, but it is helpful to remember that the electronegativity of ± > O > Cl > N > Br > I = S > C > H. d. Given a pair of organic compounds, be able to predict which one is more polar based on electronegativity consid- erations. e. Hybridization of carbon atoms 1. Be able to identify the hybridization state of a carbon atom by inspection (e.g. alkene carbons are sp 2 hybrid - ized). 2. Know how to draw carbon atoms that are sp 3 , sp 2 , and sp hybridized in three dimensions (including any p- orbitals that they possess). We have drawn these on the board a few times, and the Loudon textbook has lots of Fgures for these. 3.
