Description

Chemistry 201: Organic Reaction Mechanisms I (Fall 2012, UC Irvine). Instructor: Professor David Van Vranken.

Why is it that organic chemists can't seem to agree on how to draw plausible arrow-pushing mechanisms? In this course we connect frontier molecular orbital theory and mechanistic arrow-pushing in elementary reaction steps. By equating the interactions between filled orbitals and un-filled orbitals with curved arrows, and distinguishing them from Coulombic interactions, we collimate seemingly endless depictions into a plausible few.
