Alkenes and Alkynes
I got a 1st in my first year studying chemistry at the University of Birmingham using these revision notes that I have uploaded. They include detail on the structure and bonding of alkenes, consequences of the pi bond, E- and Z- isomers, stability of alkenes, bonding and geometry of alkynes, acidity of alkanes, alkenes and alkynes, elimination (making alkenes from alkyl halides), the Wittig Reaction, synthesis of alkenes from alkynes, dissolving metal reduction, synthesis of alkynes from different alkynes, addition of hydrogen halides, bromination of alkenes, stereochemical implications of a cyclic bromonium ion, general mechanism for halogen-containing species reacting with alkenes, bromohydrin formation, hydroboration, unsymmetrical alkenes, oxidation of organoboranes, ozonolysis, epoxidation, adding hydrogen halides and similar reagents to alkynes, vinylic carbocation stability, mercury-catalysed hydration, hydroboration of alkynes and organoboranes, acidity of alkynes and alkylation of acetylide anions. These summary notes also include worked examples as revision practice.

This document is specifically on the subject for Organic Chemistry. These are a list of helpful multiple choice questions with the answers on Alkenes and Alkynes chapter.
Complete Organic Chemistry 1 Notes (first semester)
Complete, thorough, and well-organized notes from the first semester of Organic Chemistry. This set of notes includes mechanisms, many examples, and all required mechanisms. The material covered in this course starts with chemical bonding and structure and goes through resonance, reactions of alkenes and alkynes, SN2/SN1/E2/E1, stereochemistry, and much more.
Organic Chemistry II Final Exam Study Guide
This is a study guide I made for Dr. Nicholson\'s Organic Chemistry II final exam. It is comprehensive of everything we have learned this quarter, to the best of my knowledge. It covers alcohols and their reactions, NMR (nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy) as well as review of other spectroscopy, alkynes and their reactions, and aromatic molecules and conjugated systems.
Detailed Notes for Organic Chemistry 1
These notes contain all information covered in lecture and the textbook from the entire semester of Organic Chemistry 1. Topics are organized into chapters from the textbook Organic Chemistry 8th Edition by William Brown. The 95 pages included in these notes cover:
Stereoisomerism and Chirality
Acids and Bases
Alkanes, Alkenes, and Alkynes
Using these notes in addition to attending every lecture enabled me to score the highest grade in my class on the difficult Organic Chemistry 1 final.
