We will explore practical questions about research with discussions, cases and guest speakers. Grading will be based on class participation, reflections in a seminar journal, short investigative papers, and a professional portfolio. Each week the class participates in a dialog between musicians and neuroscientists that examines both the experiential and mechanistic approach to music by asking questions such as "What makes something musical and how are the complex sounds of music processed by the brain?
This is the currently selected item. Video transcript Here's a flow sheet created by Doctor Schwartz, who was my organic chems professor.
And what's nice about this flow sheet, is it shows you all of the reactions-- or most of the reactions-- that you studied in the first semester of organic chemistry. And it shows you how all of those reactions are connected to each other. And this is very, very helpful when you're trying to do a synthesis problem.
When you're trying to synthesize one molecule from another molecule you have to know the reactions that connect those different functional groups together. And a Chemistry sythesis sheet is one of the best ways of doing it, to show you all of those different connections here.
And synthesis is what organic chemistry is all about. How do you synthesize this molecule from that molecule? How do you synthesize a molecule that's important to humanity, that's used in medicine to help to save lives or help to make everyone's life better in society?
So synthesis is really what organic chemistry is all about. And it can be very difficult, which is why you'll see a lot of these problems on organic tests. And that's why did you need to do practice problems using flow sheets.
Let's check out our problem here. Synthesize the following molecules using only acetylene, methyl bromide, in any inorganic reagents or solvents. So we'll start with the two propanol molecule.
And we'll think to ourselves OK, how do I make this alcohol from acetylene? And at first, it's not so obvious what to do. One approach is to think backwards.
And this is called retrosynthesis. So I'm going to draw a retrosynthesis arrow here. So it looks like that. And I think well, OK, what can I make an alcohol from? So I can make an alcohol from an alkene. That's one of the reactions that we've seen this semester in organic chemistry.
Like I draw an alkene like that. And I go back up to my flow sheet. And let's see if I can find that reaction. So I'm going from an alkene to an alcohol, right?
So I look at my flow sheet here. And here is an alkene right here. And here I'm going from an alkene to an alcohol.
So I'm using this arrow right here. So I have two choices of reagents, right? And I can add water and sulfuric acid, which would be a Markovnikov addition of the OH, right? Or I could do a hydroboration oxidation which would be an anti Markovnikov addition of the OH.
So I look down here and say, OK, which one do I want? Which one do I want? I want a Markovnikov addition.
I want to add the OH to the most substituted carbon like this. So it's going to be water and sulfuric acid for this transition. So water and sulfuric acid, like that. Now, I have an alkene. But I want to get back to acetylene.Link to Examination Portal Examination Results.
