Can’t quite recall the difference between D, L, R, and S? Having trouble with Benedict’s test or saponification? This subject will give you the practice you really need for MCAT organic chemistry – WITHOUT wasting your time on material that doesn’t appear on the test.
As all of you MCAT pros out there already know, organic chemistry is the least-tested MCAT science subject. This is great news if you hated Sn1/Sn2 reactions or synthesis procedures in college! However, it also makes orgo dangerous, as many students either overlook it entirely or sink way too much time into its mastery. With Brainscape’s organic chemistry flashcards, cover what you actually need to know, without wasting a second on extraneous details.
|#||Deck Name||Num. of Cards|
Having trouble remembering the difference between E and Z isomers? Finding it tough to identify meso compounds? Use these cards to master these topics, as well as resonance and hybridization, as they are tested on the MCAT.
Molecular spectra, whether NMR, IR, or mass spec, can be intimidating when they appear on the MCAT. Use these cards to master equivalent protons, memorize important shifts, and learn how these complex methods relate.
Separation and purification techniques are constant favorites of the MCAT test-makers. From extraction to distillation to chromatography, use these cards to master these concepts as they are tested on the exam.
From oxidizing agents to Sn2 reactions, use these cards to master alcohols in the way they are tested in MCAT organic chemistry.
Feeling a bit rusty with keto-enol tautomerization? Having trouble remembering the difference between acetals and hemiacetals? Use these cards to master aldehydes, ketones, and their reactions as they appear on the MCAT.
With its relationship to amino acids, carboxylic acid function is a major topic in both organic chemistry and biochemistry. With these cards, you can master the content knowledge required to attack a tricky question or understand a reaction mechanism.
From acid anhydrides to saponification, use these cards to master the carboxylic acid derivatives as tested on the MCAT.
Is an amide more reactive than a carboxylic acid? Do additional alkyl substituents make an amine more or less acidic? Master these topics and much more, and gain that confidence you need to ace any amine-related question on the MCAT.
With the biological focus of the new MCAT, having an understanding of carbohydrates, lipids, and amino acids has become especially important. Use these cards to familiarize yourself with the difference between alpha and beta anomers, reducing sugars, and much more.
What’s the difference between amides, imides, amines, and enamines? How do you name an organic compound with multiple functional groups? Use these cards to master functional groups and IUPAC conventions, and you’ll gain a solid foundation for your further review of MCAT organic chemistry.
