CHEM1102 - Resources - This Week's Resources


Topics and Learning Outcomes

  • Alcohols
    •  identify and name simple alcohols and phenols
    •  explain why phenols are more acidic than alcohols
    •  predict the products of oxidation of an alcohol and give the reagents required to perform this reaction
    •  predict the products of the elimination of alcohols, using Zaitsev's rule, and give the reagents required to perform this reaction
  • Amines
    •  identify an acid-base reaction occurring between two molecules
    •  recognize that amines are both basic and nucleophilic
  • Stereochemistry
    •  identify stereogenic centres in organic molecules
    •  distinguish between different types of isomers, including enantiomers and diastereomers
    •  use (R)- and (S)- descriptors to describe enantiomers and identify if a compouind has (R)- or (S)- stereochemistry
