OpenChemistry Lecture Videos

Professor Susan King

CHEM 51A: Organic Chemistry

These videos are part of a 28-lecture undergraduate level course titled "Organic Chemistry" taught at UC Irvine by Professor Susan King in fall 2014. She talks about the fundamental concepts relating to carbon compounds with emphasis on structural theory and the nature of chemical bonding, stereochemistry, reaction mechanisms, and spectroscopic, physical, and chemical properties of the principal classes of carbon compounds.
