R and S Configuration using Cahn Ingold Prelog Priority Rules

R and S Configuration Cahn Ingold Prelog rules for ranking by Leah Fisch

Chirality/Stereochemistry Video Series: Video 2 Chiral carbons are identified as having 4 unique substituents. Finding the Absolute Configuration – R and S comes as a result of ranking and order substituents, specifically by noting the configuration of the top 3 groups. This video shows you how to prioritize substituents to find R and S configurations […]

Introduction to Stereochemistry Enantiomers and Chiral Molecules

Introduction to stereochemsitry enantiomers and chiral molecules by Leah4sci

Chirality/Stereochemistry Video Series: Video 1 Chirality is an exciting but potentially tricky topic in organic chemistry. Why? because it’s tough to visualize 2-dimensional drawings as a 3-dimensional structure. But don’t be like the thousands of students struggling with this topic. My chirality series will take you through this topic step by step to ensure that […]

Fischer Projection Stereochemistry Finding R and S for Single and Multiple Chiral Centers

Fischer projection stereochemistry r s for single and multiple chiral centers (2)

Finding chirality for a 2-dimensional Fischer projection can be tricky. But it doesn’t have to be. This video shows you how to prioritize and rank groups on a Fischer projection when you have one or more chiral center. This video also addresses chirality when group #4 (H) is not going down/into the page (click to […]

Don’t Rely On Your Organic Chemistry Model Kit

organic chemistry model kit caution

If your professor says you can use your organic chemistry model kit on exams, I say DON’T. Don’t rely on it that is. Organic chemistry is a 3-dimensional subject that you learn on 2-dimensional paper. I know this sounds confusing but as an orgo student you’ll learn many tricks to work through 3-D problems on […]
