This webinar addresses the major reaction types tested on the MCAT. You will learn about the different types of substitution and elimination reactions, their mechanisms, and how to predict the mechanism of a given reaction based on the reaction conditions. You will also learn how to determine the correct product of a substitution or elimination reaction.
Substitution & Elimination Reactions
At a glance
Determine the mechanism of a reaction based on nucleophile/base strength, sterics, and solvent
Determine the product of a substitution or elimination reaction
The mechanisms for both types of substitution and elimination reactions
The different types of solvents
On the MCAT
The MCAT will rarely give you reaction mechanism, but they will usually write out the reaction
Consider reaction conditions when determining the correct mechanism (nucleophile or base, temperature, solvent)
Draw out the molecule and/or mechanism if it is not given
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.
