Lecture Video: Carbonyl Chemistry
One of the most diverse chemical groups is the carbonyl -- a carbon atom double-bonded to an oxygen atom. This video summarizes some of the most important carbonyl reactions discussed in this course.
Problem Set & Solutions
Problem Solving Video: Problem Set 4, Problem 2: The Mechanism of HMG-CoA Synthase
In this video, Dr. Fedeles discusses in detail the mechanism of HMG-CoA Synthase. HMG-CoA is a key enzyme in central metabolism responsible for making the 5-carbon building blocks from which all sterols, such as cholesterol and steroid hormones, are made.
