This course strongly accentuates reaction mechanisms
and theoretical understanding of organic chemical reactions. On exams,
mechanisms must be written out exactly (for full credit), with rate-determining
steps specified as "rds" or slow steps as "slow" over the reaction arrows. The
student should be able to rationalize why the appropriate step is rate determining
or slow, also. All steps known to be equilibria ( as mentioned in class) must
be so indicated by the use of equilibrium arrows. Theoretical explanations
of structure, rate, specificity, etc. must be logical and complete to the level
expounded by the instructor in class. Great emphasis is placed upon
the specific material discussed in the lecture, understood at the level at which
it is presented and demonstrated appropriately on the exams..
Transition state models are often required and must
be derived from resonance theory, not simply written down as dotted line/partial
charge structures. Transition states are characterized by various characteristics
such as carbocation or radical or alkene character and often this must be refined
to a more specific sub-character, such as primary or secondary or tertiary
carbocation character or arenium ion character or monosubstituted or disubstituted
alkene character. The characterization is then extended by the use of
the Hammond postulate, whenever it is applicable, to indicate whether
the transition state has much or a little of the specified character. It will
usually be necessary to explain the specific application of the Hammond postulate
and how it is being applied.
The Method of Competing Transition States must be used
in many cases to explain the results of competing reactions such as orientation
in electrophilic aromatic substitution, or relative rates, or reaction specificity.

Exam Orientational Curves
Review Sessions [In
- Each exam counts 100 points; the final exam counts 150, for a total of 450
possible points. Homework does not contribute to the grade.
- Exam papers, except for the final exam, will be handed back in class.
- Regrade requests must be handed in within one week of the day on which the
exam paper is returned. The right of regrading the entire exam is reserved.
Our standard procedure must be followed. This consists of attaching
a cover sheet to the exam in question which specifies which questions and
answers are at issue and why, as succinctly as possible. The exam with the
attached cover sheet is brought to the lecture and given to the TA . Regraded
exams will be returned in the same way, i.e.at class time.
- No exam can be regraded which is done in pencil or
in which there are extensive cross-outs or white-outs.
- Calculators are not permitted.
- At the time that each exam paper is returned, an orientational curve will
be presented. These are not intended to represent formal letter grades, but
only an approximate indication of your standing with respect to the class.
The final course grade will be curved, but the student should understand that
the A and B ranges will still be approximately in the 90's and 80's, respectively,
give or take a few points (most likely one or two). The "C" range usually
extends down to about 60 as the lowest "C", and anything below 50 will undoubtedly
Scholastic dishonesty will not be tolerated and will be prosecuted
to the fullest extent. You are expected to have read and understood the current
issue of General Information Catalog, published by the Registrar's Office,
for information about procedures and about what constitutes scholastic dishonesty].
