Learn Organic Chemistry (Part II)
What you'll learn
- Inductive Effect (Explained using a wide range of examples)
- Mesomeric and Electromeric Effect (Explained with examples)
- The Concept of Organic acids and Bases - Bronsted - Lowry, Lewis Concept, their behavior and periodic trends.
- Practice Problems and relevant NOTES for each topic.
- Basic Knowledge of Chemistry.
This course begins with a discussion on different types of effects which are responsible for electron displacement in a molecule – Inductive, Mesomeric and Electromeric effects. Each of these have been explained in detail with relevant examples. The impact of these effects on various behavioural properties of molecules have been highlighted.
The next section of the course is based on acids and bases of organic nature. The general acid-base concepts (Arrhenius, Bronsted - Lowry and Lewis Concept) and their quantitative expression have been explained in the beginning. Later, the course primarily focuses on organic acids and bases, their properties and behaviour.
The course is supported by practice problems and NOTES (downloadable) at the end of each section.
Who this course is for:
- Anyone interested in learning Organic Chemistry.
