Orgo Mechanisms with Common Arrow Patterns

Organic Chemistry Mechanisms Part 3 in Video Tutorial Series by Leah4Sci

Organic chemistry is all about mechanisms. And while the sheer volume may feel overwhelming, they all boil down to a few simple types of mechanism steps. In Part 1 and Part 2 we looked at the four common mechanism types: Nucleophilic attack, Loss of Leaving Group, Proton transfer and Rearrangements. In this video we’ll look at TWO […]

Proton Transfer and Rearrangement Mechanisms in Organic Chemistry

Organic Chemistry Mechanisms Part 2 in Video Tutorial Series by Leah4Sci

Proton transfer and rearrangements are 2 more common mechanism patterns you will face in organic chemistry. This is in addition to Nucleophilic attack and Loss of Leaving Group discussed in Mechanism Video Part 1. You’ll see multiple proton transfer examples in action including turning a bad leaving group into a good leaving group! Rearrangement mechanism are broken down for […]

Intro to Orgo Mechanisms Nucleophilic Attack and Loss of Leaving Group

Mechanisms Part 1 in Organic Chemistry Tutorial Video Series by Leah4Sci

Organic chemistry is all about the reaction mechanisms and moving arrows. Video 1 in this Mechanism series will help you understand what the heck these mechanisms are all about. We’ll start with a quick overview of what to look for, how to write the mechanisms, reaction arrows, and more. Then we’ll look at the first […]
