Welcome to Chemistry 2110: Principles of Chemical Reactivity

Brooklyn College Department of Chemistry, Prof. Mark Kobrak

General background in basic and more advanced concepts of chemical reactivity, molecular geometry and electronic distribution in molecules. Topics include: Atomic theory, the periodic table, periodic trends and properties (with a focus on main group elements), bonding theories, Lewis structures and formal charges, valence bond theory, polar and non-polar molecules and bonds, resonance theory, molecular orbital theory: general principles; molecular orbitals for homonuclear and heteronuclear diatomic molecules, molecular orbital theory for organic molecules focusing on functional groups, principles of symmetry in molecules, chirality, isomerism, stereoisomerism, naming chiral centers; Newman, sawhorse and fisher projections, free-energy diagrams, reaction coordinates and transition states, reaction mechanisms: curved arrow symbolism, elementary steps.
Prerequisite: Chemistry 1100 or Chemistry 2050 or Chem 1200 or Chem 2060 Prerequisite or co-requisite: Chemistry 2100 or Chem 2200
