About the Course
In this lecture, Dr Shane Lo Fan Hin (University of Sussex) introduces the very fundamentals of organic chemistry. We begin by: (i) defining and drawing some of the most common functional groups encountered; then (ii) moving onto nomenclature, giving some examples; before (iii) discussing some different types isomerism you can encounter, including structural, cis/trans and optical isomerism; and then finally (iv) briefly looking at some reaction mechanisms you may encounter.
