Organic Chemistry Resonance By resonance in organic chemistry we mean an interaction of multiple p-orbitals making a long π-bond spanning multiple atoms. A case of a simple π-bond results from the interaction of the two p-orbitals connecting two atoms. However, there are situations when three or more orbitals can interact making a much longer and much more complex orbital interaction system. There are 4 types of resonance that you’ll have to know within the scope of your organic chemistry…

Organic Chemistry Acid-Base Equilibrium Acid-Base Equilibrium Part 1: How to Use the pKa Table In this lesson, I want to talk about the fundamentals of the acid-base equilibrium and how we use it within the scope of organic chemistry. But before we go into the details of the acid-base equilibrium itself, let’s review what a base and what an acid is according to different definitions. There are three most common definitions of acids and bases and the simplest one, perhaps, is the Arrhenius…

Organic Chemistry Reactions of Aldehydes and Ketones Aldehydes and ketones are the two functional groups that share a lot of similarities. They both contain the C=O double bond, they both are polarized and have a δ+ charge on carbon and a δ- charge on oxygen. Thus, due to the structural similarity, aldehydes and ketones have many reactions that are the same for the both functional groups. That is why we often combine them in textbooks and lectures. So, what are the typical must-know…

Organic Chemistry Advanced Reactions of Aldehydes and Ketones Benzoin Condensation In this post, I want to talk about an interesting reaction of aldehydes called the benzoin condensation. The reaction name originates from the name of the product you get when you perform it on benzaldehyde alone. Ok, so here’s the general scheme for the benzoin condensation. Here we have a “classic” example of the benzoin condensation where the two molecules of benzaldehyde make a benzoin molecule. In this…
