Read the topics in the same order as described in the detailed Syllabus:
Thermodynamics and Kinetics of Organic Reactions (kinetics rather than thermodynamics controlling a reaction; electrophiles; nucleophiles; organic reaction mechanisms; ‘pushing arrows’; electrophilic addition; nucleophilic substitution; differences between free energy of activation and activation energy; complex reaction coordinate diagrams)
Ch 4.1 to 4.4 (Introduction to Organic Chemistry) Problems: 1-10, 23-40
Review of Molecular Structure and Bonding of Organic Compounds (Chem 14A) (Lewis structures; formal charges; resonance; VSEPR model; hybridization; bond angles, lengths and strengths; electronegativity; dipole moments)
Ch 3 & 4 (Chemical Principles) See Chem 14A notes and problems for review of this material.
Structure and Naming of Organic Molecules Part 1: Hydrocarbons (IUPAC and common names, and structures, of alkanes, cycloalkanes, alkenes, cycloalkenes, and alkynes; constitutional and geometric isomers)
Ch 1, Sections 1-6 and 11 (Introduction to Organic Chemistry) Problems: 1-6, 9-17, 21-29
Part 2: Functional Groups (IUPAC and common names, and structures, of haloalkanes, haloalkenes, alcohols, ethers, aldehydes, ketones, carboxylic acids and amines; primary, secondary, tertiary and quaternary carbons, hydrogens and nitrogens)
Ch 2, Sections 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 10 (Introduction to Organic Chemistry) Problems: 1, 3-6, 8, 11-13, 15-31 (omit 21, 22), 34-36, 40, 42, 44, 46-48
Structure and Conformations of Organic Molecules (structures and conformations (staggered, eclipsed, gauche, anti, chair, boat) of alkanes, cycloalkanes and substituted cycloalkanes; the effects of torsional & steric strain; Newman structures; relative energy differences and calculating ratios of two conformations; geometric isomers of cycloalkanes and their relative stabilities (preferred conformations))
Ch 3, Sections 1, 2 (Introduction to Organic Chemistry) Problems: 1-16
