Arrhenius, Bronsted-Lowry, and Lewis Acids and Bases in Organic Chemistry

As an organic chemistry student you will find yourself faced with acid/based questions again and again. From categorizing molecules to ranking their strength without pKa or pKb values. This isn’t terrible if/when you learn it correctly, however, your professor will assume you alredy know this. So s/he won’t teach it. Why? Because you’re expected to remember […]

Drawing Chair Conformations and Ring Flips for Cyclohexane

Studying chair conformations is likely one of the trickiest visual topics in organic chemistry, perhaps second only to Fischer projections. Not only are you required to learn a 3-dimensional concept, but you also have to manipulate that 3-D molecule on 2-dimensional paper. The average orgo student is not an artist, making this topic even trickier. […]
