337. Tackling Exam Questions: Reaction Mechanisms

Description

To succeed in this topic, you need to:

  • Be familiar with the organic reactions of different homogenous groups, including aliphatic and aromatic compounds.
  • Be aware that organic reactions may undergo different reaction mechanism due to the attacking species involved.
  • Be able to draw the structural formula, displayed formula and skeletal formula to represent organic molecules.

After working through this Chemistry Factsheet, you will:

  • Be able to describe reaction mechanisms making correct use of partial charges and curly arrows, and using correctly drawn intermediates when appropriate.
  • Be able to illustrate reaction mechanisms: free-radical substitution, electrophilic addition, electrophilic substitution, nucleophilic substitution, nucleophilic addition, elimination and addition-elimination, to correctly answer examination questions.
  • Be able to identify major and minor products based on the reaction mechanism involved and the relative stabilities of the intermediates involved.
