Addition reactions of conjugated dienes

In this tutorial, Jay shows the possible products for an addition to a conjugated diene and how the end product can be controlled by changing the reaction conditions.

Diels-alder reaction

In this tutorial, Jay shows the mechanism, stereochemistry, and regiochemistry for the classic Diels-Alder reaction.

Molecular orbital theory

In this tutorial, Jay introduces molecular orbital (MO) theory and shows how MO theory explains the experimental observations of the Diels-Alder reaction.

Color in organic molecules

In this tutorial, Jay explains basic color theory and shows how conjugation determines the color of organic molecules. Basic knowledge of MO theory is assumed.
