Welcome to the Colby College Organic Chemistry Page
The purpose of this web site is to provide additional resources for students of
organic chemistry, both at the introductory and advanced levels. Within, one can find thought provoking problems (along with answers), class notes, and handouts. Also multimedia demos which we have used in the classroom to illustrate concepts in organic chemistry can be viewed online using the Shockwave technology from Macromedia. All sections have an online office hour component where students can ask questions related to organic chemistry. A section of links pertinent to undergraduates studying chemistry is also included. Currently, we have two sections: 1) a section covering course material for a sophomore organic chemistry class, and 2) a section covering material for an organic synthesis course. In the future, we will be adding sections covering physical organic chemistry and resources for organic chemistry teachers.
To take maximum advantage of the resources on this page, you will need the following:
