Dot structures

Going dotty trying to review? Don't worry about a single thing - or multiples for that matter! Get some points on simple organic dot structures in this tutorial.

Bond-line structures

Call them Bonds. Covalent Bonds. Smart chemists need time to stir (and shake) their solutions. In this tutorial, Jay explains how chemists use bond-line structures as a form of organic shorthand to skip time-consuming carbon and hydrogen atoms labeling. Watch this tutorial so you too can be in the Dr. Know.


What is the most attractive concept in undergraduate organic chemistry? Currently most are polarized on the topic, but the pull of electronegativity is hard to resist. Within this tutorial, we will learn about electronegativity and see how it applies to polarity, intermolecular forces, and physical properties.
