CHEM 51B: Organic Chemistry

These videos cover the lectures in Dr. Van Vranken's section of Chemistry 51B: Organic Chemistry, the second course in a three-quarter sequence at UC Irvine. The order of the lectures go along with Chapters 10-18 of Organic Chemistry, 3rd Ed. by Janice Gorzynski-Smith. The course focuses on chemical transformations, chemical reagents, arrow-pushing mechanisms, chemical structure, and spectroscopy.
