Intro to Orgo Mechanisms Nucleophilic Attack and Loss of Leaving Group

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 […]

Key Arrow Patterns in Resonance Structures

Understanding resonance structures is the first step. Knowing which electrons CAN and CAN’T is key to figuring out how to draw additional resonance structures. This video shows you what to avoid when drawing resonance, followed by key arrow patterns to look out for in determining additional structures.
