Call them Bonds. Covalent Bonds. Smart chemists need time to stir (and shake) their solutions. In this tutorial, we will explain 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.
Let's review the basics of chemical bonds including dot structures, hybridization, bond-line structures, electronegativity, and polarity. We will also discuss how bonding and intermolecular forces relate to physical properties such as boiling point.
