Unformatted text preview: Chemistry 41c: Organic Chemistry Spring 2011-In Class Activity #1 “Carbonyl Chemistry” Create a team consisting of three to four Ch41c students and one pre-frosh if possible. Your job is to explain as much about a carbonyl group and the reactivity of carbonyl compounds to each other (including the pre-frosh) as possible. The following questions could serve as an outline for the discussion. On the other hand, if you have different insights, try to build your case in an alternate way (please show me this on the back if you do it this way). At the end of the activity are a couple of mechanism problems that should be challenging. See if you and your pre-frosh can get up to that level by the end of class. (you may need to explain arrow pushing as well!). Feel free to use any and all resources available in 153 Noyes (including the TAs). You have 40 minutes, so use your team’s resources wisely. Most questions will seem simple, while some may be challenging and will require your creativity. Do your best! Do your best!...
