It affects Wednesdays classes only, not Mondays.

[Update history:
Thurs 19th Dec 2013 – PAST YEARS PAPERS PAGES initiated – see bottom of post.
Tie night 1 Oct UPDATED Alkanes and Alkenes ppt uploaded HERE
Tue 1 Oct Experiment 4 uploaded
Fri 27 Sept Experiment 3 and 5a uploaded.
Tue 24-Sept-2013 – (Sorry it’s half a day late)
Added Alkanes and Alkenes powerpoint << Now removed

Wed 18-Sept-2013 (Lab 1 and 2 plus marking guidelines – see below)

Note: This is a ‘sticky header’ post, so New CHM 412 content will appear below this. Scroll down to check.

This semester I am teaching CHM 412, simple “Organic Chemistry For Technology”. This is the “home page” for this code where info, trial questions, syllabus etc will be placed. Check also the separate, topic specific theory posts (see links below). Please get involved with the information that will appear here as well as ask questions. Thanks.

1) Molecular Shape and Orbital Hybridization
Excellent animations., also discussed N and O hybridisation 🙂….

2) Hybridization part1…

3)Hybridization, part 2 (Exercises)…
