What Is This Course About?
Continuing studies in structure of organic
molecules emphasis on biological applications.
Resonance, stereochemistry, conjugation, and
aromaticity spectroscopy (NMR, IR, mass
spectrometry) effects of structure on physical
and chemical properties survey of biomolecular
structure. Summary Theory, determination, and
influence of the structure of organic molecules.
7
What Tools Will I Need?
  • Textbook
  • Organic Chemistry Structure and Function, 5th
    edition (Vollhardt and Schore) and Study Guide
  • -- or --
  • Organic Chemistry, 4th edition (Bruice) and Study
    Guide

8
What Tools Will I Need?
  • Chem 14C Thinkbook
  • Contains
  • Spectroscopy data table
  • Instructions for use
  • Lecture supplements
  • OWLS problems
  • CFQ PP
  • Periodic table

9
What Tools Will I Need?
  • Molecular model kit Any kit ok
  • Course web site
  • web.chem.ucla.edu/harding/index.html
  • Announcements
  • Access to Chem 14C Discussion Board
  • Many other course materials and tools
  • Students who make copious use of the web site
    earn higher grades.

10
What Tools Will I Need?Weekly Course Activities
Schedule
Also available from course web site
11
What Tools Will I Need?Ancillary tools -
Strongly recommended
  • Organic Chemistry as a Second Language (Klein)
  • Pushing Electrons (Weeks)
  • Why should I spend ?
  • Also useful for Chem 14D, MCAT prepso why not
    invest in your education?

12
Exams and Grades
  • Two midterm exams
  • Monday April 30, 500 - 650 PM 100
    points

14
The Chem 14C ThinkbookThe Reader
Contains
  • Lecture Supplements
  • ? Bring to lecture every day
  • OWLS problems
  • ? Bring to discussion every day
  • Reading/problem list for Bruice textbook
  • ? Reading/problem list for Vollhardt
    Schore at course web site

15
The Chem 14C ThinkbookThe Reader
Contains Two types of practice problems
  • Concept Focus Questions (CFQ)
  • ? Focus on key lecture concepts exam review
  • Practice Problems (PP)
  • ? Explore, reinforce, and integrate concepts

There is no better way to learn organic chemistry
than to do as many problems as possible.
16
Discussion Section Activities
Discussions start after lecture on Wednesday,
April 4
  • Why bother with discussion?
  • More time with lecture topics
  • Develop problem-solving skills
  • OWLS problems
  • Solutions posted on course web site only
  • Work before discussion!

17
Discussion Section Activities
Attendance is not mandatory, but
Attend any discussion section you like
18
Lecture and Exam ScheduleCourse content in three
main sections
  • Topics in Molecular Structure
  • Some 14AB review, some new theory
  • Laboratory Determination of Structure
  • How do we determine molecular structure
    in the lab?
  • Structure Controls Everything
  • Structure controls physical, chemical, and
    biological properties

  • Academic misconduct Just dont do it.

Exam and Study Hints Study organic chemistry at
least one hour every day of the week that ends in
-day Instructional Associates office hours,
discussion sections, email, etc. Course
announcements Organic Chemistry Tutorials Tutor
list Old exams -- seven quarters! Lecture
presentations (powerpoint) and audio recordings
(mp3) All sorts of other good stuff
21
Tasks to Completed Before Next Lecture
  • Explore course web site.
  • Start reading textbook -- get page assignment
    from Thinkbook or course web site.
  • Read Concept Focus Questions for first lecture
    (in Thinkbook). Makes lecture content more
    meaningful.
