Alkenes and Alkynes
Lecture no. 9 from the course: Foundations of Organic Chemistry
Taught by Professor Ron B. Davis Jr. | 34 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course
How can pi bonds change the chemistry of hydrocarbons? How did one of the greatest rivalries in chemistry lead to an understanding of trends in stability among regio- and stereoisomers with the same molecular formula? Why do terminal alkynes have such unusual acidity? Professor Davis has the answers to these and other questions.
