  1. About Organic Chemistry 1.5a

    In this instalment of relearning organic chemistry we’re going to take a look at chromatography, used for separation and purity control. It’s an important tool of organic chemistry and you’re likely to come across references to it in posts on DF, so apart from it being one of the systematic analysis steps, you’ll wont to have a working knowledge of the technique to be involved in chemistry discussions. Chromatographic isolation (column) Column chromatography involves a cylinder...
  2. About Organic Chemistry 1.4

    Previously on about O C we’ve had a lightning summery of the identification of carbon as the prime element, with hydrogen, oxygen and nitrogen as components in combination for all organic substances. To continue we need a rudimentary understanding of quantitative analysis, as to understand how the values and mathematical formulae of organic chemistry are derived. This may not sound very exciting and trust me it’s not, but you will come away with an understanding of how big the question,...
  3. About Organic Chemistry 1.3

    Docta’s relearning of organic chemistry continues, with the spectre of chromatography and empirical formula looming large on the horizon. The organic states And so from the works of super star chemists of the eighteenth hundreds it is evident that the organic form is supported by the bonding of carbon atoms, the potential energy in these bond is the chemical energy that supports life, from bacteria to blue whales. 99% of organic compounds contain hydrogen and of them the...
  4. About Organic Chemistry 1.2

    In this instalment of Docta’s relearning organic chemistry the term “group” will be encountered for the first time. The word group is an umbrella term to describe a structural component of a substance, it is not a substance in it’s own right but a common set of atomic arrangements. Combining power of molecules The two great chemists Liebig and Wohler continued there pioneering research into isomers to try and crack the how and why, to find a method of how to distinguished between...
  5. About Organic Chemistry 1.1

    Docta’s relearning of organic chemistry continues, Breakthrough, The theory of structure Organic chemists of the early eighteen hundreds continued analysis of the quantity of elements in organic compounds and quickly found the results of there observations to be in conflict with the laws of chemistry. At that time it was believed that a substances composed of equal elemental quantities were identical in every way. The resultant data from quantitative analysis showed that two or...
  6. About Organic Chemistry 1.0

    Introduction A common question in the basic chemistry forum is, “where can I learn about organic chemistry”. It was not easy coming from high school level general chemistry into organic chemistry, for many the most feared of all the experimental sciences. The strangest thing about the subject is that after studying it informally for around 7 years I really thought I understood it reasonably well until the day I started thinking like a chemist, that was when I realised I hardly...
  7. Neruoscience and Biochemistry

    My favorite courses thus far in university. They are second year courses, an introduction to the fundamental concepts of neuroscience; anatomy, neurochemistry, pharmacology, cognitive processes etc and introductory biochemistry. I finally dove into what I really want to learn about and pursue in my career. That being said, mid term season is back. I've got a lot on my plate this year, working 3/4 time, and with a full course load. Studying didn't get any easier and the work load didn't...
  8. My first drug synth

    I've never written a blog before, and was never inclined to share personal information about myself on the internet to begin with. I am however on a journey of knowledge through university into a research field of some sort, with my major interest being psychopharmacology. Chemistry and biology classes are currently at the forefront of my studies, since I only began university a few months ago. So I decided I would write about what I like, what I don't like, and what I do in school and...
