Chemistry 51C: Organic Chemistry (Spring 2012, UC Irvine). Instructor: Professor James S. Nowick.

These videos cover the third academic quarter of a three-quarter undergraduate-level class "Organic Chemistry" taught at UC Irvine. This third-quarter class, Chem 51C, builds upon the previous two quarters, Chem 51A and Chem 51B, and focuses on the chemistry of carbonyl compounds. Topics covered include aldehydes, ketones, carboxylic acids, esters, acid chlorides, anhydrides, amides, nitriles, enolates, organometallic reagents, the aldol reaction, amines, carbohydrates, amino acids, and peptides.
