List of Chemistry Notes
Basic notes on conformation and reactivity.
Covers aromatic reaction types, then moves onto the Synthesis and Reaction Types of each class of Heterocyclic Compound. Mostly from the two primers on these topics.
Notes mostly from the Primer, starting with Hydrogen then moving to Alkali Metals and Helium.
Info about HSAB Principle, Coordination Geometries, Isomerism and Complex Stability
Covers some of the descriptive chemistry of the p-Block, done by Group (12 to 18)
Covers some of the descriptive chemistry of each element in the Transition Metals section of the Periodic Table.
Covers generation through reaction types and mechanism onto synthetic uses. I did this topic at Advanced level so should be fairly comprehensive. Mixture of Primer and Lecture Notes.
Details on the basic types of mechanism and redox pathways, with information on how this can be detected using kinetic studies. Mostly taken from a variety of lecture notes.
Mostly Descriptive Chemistry, but discusses why the chemistry occurs as well. There is some more detail on Uranium at the end. Adapted from Dr Heyes' Lecture Notes
Brief Notes on Magnetism, I think from Dr Cox's lectures.
Notes on MO Diagrams and LCAO for simple molecular compounds and complexes. This is pretty much entirely a cut-down version of Dr Mountford's lecture handouts.
Covers microscopic and macroscopic interactions. Moves on to Mixtures and De-Bye Huckel Theory and so on. There are some gaps in this early on.
Contains basic facts to know, and an introduction to approximations and selection rules for molecular energy levels.
General discussion of the trends amongst the Non-Metals and reasons behind them, plus some comparisons between elements towards the end. Adapted from a variety of sources.
Basics of interpreting UV, IR, Mass Spec and NMR for Organic compounds. Also has a useful shapes and shifts diagram at the end.
Covers Organonitrogen, Organoboron, organosilicon, organophosphorus and organosulphur reactions and reagents. Mostly from the primers (where appropriate) but added to from core texts too.
Divided into Oxidation then Reduction. Covers the lecture notes, with more basic useful conversions thrown in (which are actually more helpful!)
Very thorough notes on the different types of Pericyclic Reactions. Probably covers advanced as a large part of them is made up of lecture notes. I didn't use them much though - too complicated!
A series of mini-essays on the concepts behind Physical Organic Chemistry. Rarely comes up, except of course the year I sat Finals ...
Covers basics and postulates, before moving onto applications, e.g. particle in a box, on a ring, etc etc.
Carbenes, Nitrenes and Arynes covered, particularly generation and reactions. Fairly basic level though.
Some basic notes at the start, then covers examples and mechanisms later on.
Discussion of basic formulae, selection rules and so on relevant to rotational spectroscopy.
Incorporates Vibrational Energy Levels into molecular spectroscopy, so covering IR and Raman.
Covers origins of molecular partition function, then addresses translational, rotational, vibrational and electronic components.
Some very basic conventions and symmetry rules, before moving onto Stereoelectronics Notes (most of which come from the Primer)
Thorough notes on most aspects of Transition Metal Chemistry. Largely adapted from Prof Denning's lecture notes, with some extra bits thrown in.
