Tutorial introducing the concept of drawing curved arrows for reaction mechanisms, and explaining how they are used to represent the movement of electrons.
Tutorial covering the acid-catalysed hydration of alkenes, an electrophilic addition reaction forming alcohols. The mechanism is also covered, discussing the Markovnikov rule and the regioselectivity.
Tutorial covering the mechanism of the nitration of benzene, an electrophilic aromatic substitution reaction in which a nitro group is introduced onto a benzene ring.
Tutorial covering the nomenclature of substituted cycloalkanes, as well as cycloalkyl substituents.
Tutorial introducing the different types of alkanes, as well as the nomenclature of the linear (or straight-chain) alkanes.
This tutorial covers the nomenclature of simple ethers.
This tutorial covers the systematic nomenclature of alkyl halides.
This tutorial covers the systematic nomenclature of simple alkenes.
Tutorial covering the Friedel-Crafts alkylation reaction, an electrophilic aromatic substitution reaction in which a benzene ring is modified with an alkyl substituent.
