Summary Sheet – Introduction to Reactivity and Nomenclature

One of my students is taking an introductory organic chemistry course at a community college. While preparing for our next session, which is going to cover some of the basics of chemical reactivity, I found myself making a little summary sheet. It’s not nearly as comprehensive as some of the ones I’ve made on carbonyl chemistry, but people taking an introductory organic chemistry course might find it useful. Note that the examples come from material in my students’ course… your course material may vary.

Someday I’ll put together a more comprehensive summary sheet of this stuff – there’s certainly a lot more that could go in.

Thank you! I was looking for something like this for a refresher.



Thank you! I’ve just taken up organic chem and this has really helped me! :)



All these summary sheets are amazing. Thank you so much for the job you’ve done.

A small thing.. boiling points in the headline is missing an i.. and also under the notes of Ionic intermolecular bonding. (sorry, I’m meticulous :) )



Thanks! I’ll fix this.



Thanks a lot. This is very helpful
