**Welcome to CHEM 494**Instructor: Prof. Duncan Wardrop Time/Day: T, 4:30-8:15 p.m. September 9, 2010**Course Website**http://www.chem.uic.edu/chem494 • Syllabus • Course Policies • Other handouts • Announcements (Course News) • Course Calendar**Keys to Success**• 1. Attend all lectures and discussion sections. • 2. Don’t fall behind. Organic chemistry is easy, but each topic builds on the previous. • 3. Don’t memorize. Organic chemistry is conceptual. • 4. Always ask yourself “Why” for everything you read or hear. You may not always find the answer, but just asking will help you to find connections and remember more.**Origins and Examples of Organic Chemistry**Introduction**Vitalism**Living Nonliving. vs. • posses vital force • compounds derived from are “organic” (coined by J. Berzelius, 1807) • could not be synthesized in the laboratory • termed “inorganic” • derived from nonliving matter • can be synthesized in the lab**Wohler Synthesis Debunks Vitalism**F.

C.**Memorize These Functional Groups NOW**• functional group: a defined group of atoms with a specific connectivity • responsible for properties • predictable reactivity • well-defined nomenclature Memorizing: “What is the minimum number of atoms needs to define a functional group and in what order are they bonded?” Flashcards! Table 4.1, page 140**Formal Charge - Example 1**• My logic (no memorizing equations): • Recognize that opposing charges cancel each other • Determine difference in protons vs. electrons by asking: • How many valence (outer shell) electrons does the atom have? • How many valence (outer shell) electrons does the atom “want” (groups #)? • If atom hasmore than it “wants,” negatively charged. • If atom hasless than it “wants,” positively charged.

(Note: double headed arrow does NOT indicate interconversion.) • Dashed-line notation is sometimes used to indicate partial bonds. • Not all structures contribute equally.
