Lecture no. 13 from the course: Foundations of Organic Chemistry
Taught by Professor Ron B. Davis Jr. | 32 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course
Complete your mastery of the trifecta of fundamental organic reactions with a lecture on addition, which adds new groups to unsaturated molecules by sacrificing pi bonds for more stable sigma bonds. You’ll explore the basics of addition reactions; the hydrogenation of alkenes and alkines; the ways addition has helped create food additives; and much more.
