Review Problems

Organic Chemistry Jeopardy! Games While not designed for individual students use (were designed to be moderated by an organic chemistry "expert"), these Jeopardy! games may be a different way to review some topics in Organic Chemistry. Some, but not all, "keys" can be found by following the links "back" to the instruction page for how to create your own Jeopardy! games. Reaction Rolodex [added 11/27/07] The "Reaction Rolodex": A Web-Based System for Learning Reactions in Organic Chemistry: "This Web-based system of note cards has been developed to aid students in learning the vast number of reactions encountered in organic chemistry. A thorough knowledge of these reactions is essential for success in first- and second-semester organic chemistry courses. The reactions are organized by functional group and can be chosen from a menu at the left side of the Web page. Once a particular reaction has been selected, the main frame displays the reactant(s) and reagent(s) along with a question mark in place of the product. After considering the reaction as long as needed, the user can click the question mark to reveal the reaction product. Clicking the product will again hide the answer and regenerate the question mark so that the reaction can be practiced again. Selecting other reactions from the menu on the left allows them to be practiced in the same manner. Not only have students responded positively toward this study aid, but also an analysis of scores on the reactions section of exams in first-semester organic chemistry classes indicates significantly higher performance for classes that used the program versus those that did not."

Reaction Map of Organic Chemistry Click here to receive this 32 page document (pdf file). (293.559 Kb) [Added 11/07] The Reaction-Map of Organic Chemistry has been designed to give organic chemistry students an overview of most of the reactions needed for the organic chemistry course. The chart has been partially organized according to the periodic table on the horizontal axis and according to carbon oxidation level on the vertical axis. In addition the carboxyls are grouped vertically according to decreasing reactivity, and carbon­carbon bond forming reactions are emphasized with bold arrows. The chart provides a study aid for students and should help students develop synthetic routes from one functional group to another. The chart should be especially useful for students studying for the final examination for the two-semester organic chemistry course. In addition to the chart, three keys are available that organize the reactions according to mechanism, functional group preparations, and functional group reactions. Chemistry can be thought of as a search for order in matter and this chart attempts to provide some insight into the order that exists in organic chemistry. Citation: Murov, Steven. J. Chem. Educ. 2007, 84, 1224. Interactive Study Problems (updated 9/24/07) Organic Chemistry Practice Problems at Michigan State University: The problems found here are meant to be useful study tools for students involved in most undergraduate organic chemistry courses. The problems have been color-coded to indicate general relevance. Prof. Linda Sweeting, Townson State Univ. (now deceased) has some on-line Organic Reactions Quizes and Summaries that may be useful practice (let me know). In her words: "The summaries and quizzes which can be selected below are designed to assist organic chemistry students in the review of the basic reactions; they are similar to the summaries in the text and include references to it. We have chosen to use specific examples, rather than R-group notation, so that you will see the reactions in context in a real, but simple, molecule. Note that every reaction should occur twice in this summary, once under "reactions" and once under "synthesis"; for your convenience, the functional groups are separated into semester groups, but some reactions may occur once in each. Reactions for which the mechanism or stereochemistry is an important part of your learning have Mechanism! or Stereochemistry! highlighted."

Ohio-State University has some on-line flashcards that help you practice your organic transformations. Selected Topics in Organic Chemistry Colby College has 16 Shockwave, animated, Organic Chemistry topics, posted on their web site. For the most part, these are well done. Use them to review topics that we have already covered or use them as we get to new topics, to reinforce the text and lecture. The University of Southern Maine O=Chem Directory An impressive collection of Orgo topics that is essentially a web textbook which includes embedded questions with immediate feedback on whether you answered the question correctly. Can use this site to either just practice the questions or to get a second description of a topic we or our book covered. (Discovered 1/31/07).
