Cis Trans and E Z Geometric Isomers

 Your organic chemistry course will cover many different types of isomers. Isomers have the same molecular formula but something about them is different. Geometric isomers, a type of stereoisomer, differ in their geometry or shape. This happens when substituents are LOCKED in a specific relationship to each other. I say locked because, unlike conformational isomers in […]

Introduction To IUPAC Nomenclature

Naming Organic Compounds Series: Video 1 This video is designed to give you an introduction to my ‘puzzle approach’ to IUPAC Nomenclature. Many orgo students find the topic of naming to be difficult or tricky when they attempt to name a large molecule in one shot. However, in this video I show you how to […]
