About Organic Chemistry on Brainscape

What is Organic Chemistry?

Organic chemistry is a subdiscipline of chemistry that studies the structure, composition, properties, reactions, and synthesis of carbon-containing compounds. You might have heard it before (or not), but carbon is the element of life. Yes, c-a-r-b-o-n. Carbon. Not oxygen, but carbon. And believe it or not, whenever space explorers check other planets, the first thing they look for are compounds containing carbon. Many years ago, humans even thought that carbon compounds could only be produced by living organisms. So much so that until today, we call carbon-containing compounds – organic.

The very foundations of organic chemistry are built on them – ‘organic compounds’ (of course) and their role in life processes. This subject plays a significant role in the production and improvement of common household chemicals, plastics, food, medications, fuels, explosives, and cosmetics.

Some of the careers that apply the knowledge and understanding of organic chemistry include chemical engineers, forensic analyst, physicians, dentists, veterinarians, chemists, food scientists, and pharmacologist.

Learning Organic Chemistry

Organic chemistry is challenging. Those who study this subject, have “alkynes” (all kinds) of trouble. Well, kidding aside, if you want to learn about alkynes, alkenes, dot structures, electronegativity, hybridization, and polarity, study organic chemistry.

And since it is a logical-type of science, you probably need to start and learn the basics. Push yourself to understand the foundations and the basic concepts because you need to understand the logic behind the reactions. Don’t wait until the day before your exams to start studying. And utilize all study tools to understand critical concepts effectively.

Instead of reading alone, try ready-to-review flashcards, such as those in Brainscape.

Brainscape is one of the most beneficial supplementary tools designed to make your study of organic chemistry much easier. Be it about molecular structure, oxidation-reduction, Diels-Alder reaction, and conjugated systems; it’s all contained within Brainscape’s study platform.

In addition to that, through the Brainscape mobile app, you can make your own set of flashcards and study them on your phone or tablet anytime, anywhere.

Learn Faster in Brainscape

Brainscape can help you learn Organic Chemistry (and other subjects) effectively, with the use of cognitive science. How? Brainscape applies the principles of the existing cognitive theories to help us strengthen our memory, which we call “Cognitive Based Repetition” (CBR). The CBR algorithm makes use of the learning processes: Metacognition, Active Recall, and Spaced Repetition. Experts have attested to the usefulness of these learning methods before, but nobody has applied these more effectively than Brainscape.
