Alkyne Reactions Overview Cheat Sheet – Organic Chemistry

In response to the feedback for my alkene reaction cheat sheet I’ve compiled another organic chemistry reference sheet, this time for alkyne reactions. Do NOT simply use this guide to memorize reaction products. Instead use this guide as you study to ensure that you understand mechanisms and recognize reaction sequences. For my Alkyne Reactions Organic […]

Oxymercuration-Demercuration Alkene Reaction Mechanism

Oxymercuration-Demercuration, also referred to as oxymercuration-reduction is slightly more confusing than that average alkene reaction. I think it’s a combination of the extra steps, involvement of mercury, and the mysterious reduction by sodium borohydride. But don’t let this confuse you. The video below takes you through the entire reaction mechanism with step by step explanations […]
