MCAT organic chemistry has some fairly rigid components. One of them is carbonyl chemistry because it is so biological. One you know the basics of carbonyl chemistry, you will be able to figure out most, if not all, complex mechanisms. In this webinar, we will cover commonly tested, and biologically relevant reactions, including the aldol reaction. Please watch to get a very targeted approach to MCAT orgo that your orgo classes did not provide.
Carbonyl Chemistry Part 2
At a glance
Determine the 4 properties of organic molecules
Follow reaction mechanisms
Determine reaction products and reactants both synthetically and retro-synthetically
The carbonyl pyramid
Reactivities of carboxylic acid derivatives
Commonly tested oxidants and reductants
Recognize and follow carboxylic acid derivative chemistry in biological settings
On the MCAT
Mastering organic chemistry can be less stressful than the average student believes. You have to know your fundamentals, as well as core orgo building blocks like nomenclature and stereochemistry
Process of elimination and working backwards from the answers can be a great orgo strategy
I think these webinars are really helpful! I like how they’re styled like a TED talk, so they don’t interfere with the day, but they’re really helpful review 🙂
I found everything helpful about these webinars: the explanations, the illustrations, just everything!
Amazing material conveyed concisely and in great detail!
The wealth of information and sample questions are great.
