Oxidation and Reduction of Alkenes and Alkynes

This video takes you through the various oxidation and reduction reactions you’ve covered back in alkene and alkyne reactions. In this video we differentiate between redox reactions vs reactions that add oxygen/hydrogen without a net reduction. This video also compares different types of oxidative cleavage reactions using Ozonolysis and KMnO4 for terminal and internal alkenes […]

Hydrohalogenation of Alkenes Video

Alkene Reactions Series: Video 2 Alkene Hydrohalogenation is the reaction in which a pi bond is broken and a halogen added to the more substituted or ‘Markovnikov’ position.   (Watch on YouTube: Hydrohalogenation.

Alkene Reaction Mechanisms

Alkene Reactions Series: Video 1 This introduction to organic chemistry alkene reactions tutorial is meant to serve as an introduction to the concept of alkene reaction mechanisms. Starting from the very foundation, learn what makes alkene electrons so reactive, as well as how to recognize a nucleophile and electrophile in orgo reactions. You’ll also get […]
