This is a far from comprehensive list. If you see something missing, email me. I don’t earn any money from recommending these sites.

Youtube Videos

  • Khan Academy has a large number of lectures on organic chemistry. They are a decent overview of the course material in Org 1 and Org 2. Videos done by Khan are not the best, but the ones by “Jay” are solid.
  • Freelance Teacher has more organic chemistry videos than you can watch in your lifetime.  They are awesome as a step-by-step guide at solving problems.  The trouble can be knowing where to look (e.g. a 50+ video series on resonance is comprehensive but not useful). One suggestion might be to use Khan for the big picture and then FT for some guidance on solving specific problems.

This is a godsend, for those with access… One of the documents that are always hanging around my workplace.

Also, I point to this page for the more advanced students, although I frequent the oxidation and reduction ones…

for pushing electrons i have found the book “electron flow in organic chemistry” by paul scudder to be an excellent resource.

Yes! A great summary of nucleophiles and electron sinks. Highly recommend.
