Organic Chemistry Lecture Videos: Second Semester

Publication Date



In this video I'll teach you more about protein chemistry. I'll begin by sharing video footage of a practical joke my friends and I used to do, called "screaming in the bathroom." I'll teach you about thin-layer chromatography (TLC) and amino acid synthesis using the Hell-Volhard-Zelinski reaction, reductive amination, a combined malonic ester/Gabriel synthesis (with the mechanism), and the Strecker synthesis. I go on to introduce peptide synthesis, as well as peptide structure, including disulfide bridges. --Dr. Mike Christiansen from Utah State University.
