Study Page for Carey 10th Edition

If you are studying a particular chapter in Organic Chemistry, 10th Ed. by Francis Carey and Robert Giuliano, the links below cite what lessons in the Primer to read as a study aid for related topics. Then there is a link to a playlist to see explained practice problems for the topics. You can read the Primer before, after, or instead of reading the chapter. You'll have to see what works best for you and assess how much time you have. The Primer reading is WAY shorter than the text book reading if you are in a time crunch and you need to hit some of the high points.

Note:  This chapter covers functional groups but not Nucleophiles/Electrophiles. So, you can skip over the problems about nucleophiles/electrophiles in Video Lesson I.4. Likewise, this chapter only names alkanes, so skip naming alkyl halides and alcohols in video practice I.14.

34 pages to read in the Primer:

Sounds like a lot, but once you do the 12-page intro, it's only 3-5 pages to learn each reaction with detailed examples.

Lesson III.3-5 (12 p) Hydration and Rxn with HX

Lesson III.6 (5 p) Halogenation and Halohydrins

Lesson III.7 (5 p) Oxymercuration

Lesson III.8 (5 p) Cyclopropanation and Epoxidation

Lesson III.9 (3 p) Hydroboration/Oxidation

Lesson III.10 (4 p) Ozonolysis and Vicinal Diols

Note:  This chapter does not cover the cyclopropanation, or vicinal diol formation. So, you can ignore the practice questions having CH2N2, CHCl3/KOtBu, Zn(Cu)/CH2I2 or OsO4 as reagents in the video.
