Today was our first meeting since the student's first class of Organic Chemistry. Her professor gave her a topic list for each chapter that would be covered in the exam as well as a practice exam and practice problems for homework for each chapter. There was a handout on Lewis structures that she received and wanted to go over in more detail. We discussed the main "rules" of drawing these structures and did a couple of practice problems using the rules. After a few problems, I showed her a way of doing the drawings without using the 'step-by-step' rules but with using the aid of conceptual knowledge about chemistry basics. We also discussed exceptions to the rules of Lewis structure drawings. She got the problems almost immediately. I asked her to connect this information with information she learned last time we met and she was able to do it. Next session, we will start her exam review for chapter one and possibly chapter two.

Student and I talked about elimination reactions in detail. She said that they are still talking about elimination reactions in class, but she wanted to have a session to discuss the material before her class got too deep into the topic. We started by covering the basics, such as how elimination and substitution reactions compete with each other, and how and why heat favors elimination reactions (using the Gibbs free energy equation and activation energies). We then looked at the E1 and E2 reactions and compared the two of them, and also talked about why they use different mechanisms (to account for rate law, stereochemistry, base strength, etc...). We looked at elimination reactions using cyclohexanes as substrates, which led us on a discussion of chair conformations and what makes a particular conformation more or less stable. We applied all of these concepts to elimination reaction rates; how the stability of a chair conformation can affect the rate of the reaction. We talked about axial and equatorial positions in detail, as well as anti and syn conformations. We also covered the concepts of p-orbitals and the transfer and flow of electrons.
