Overview: Amino Acids, Amides and Chirality
This is an overview of Topic 33: Amino Acids, Amides and Chirality. It includes alpha amino acids, reactions, preparation of amides and optical isomerism.
This video introduces amides including classification, naming examples and the preparations of amides.
Amino Acids Introduction
Video explaining what amino acids are and more specifically alpha amino acids.
Reactions of Amino Acids
This video looks at the reactions of amino acids with alkalis, acids and alcohols providing examples.
Introduction to Optical Isomerism
This video explains optical isomerism using a visual aid of molecular models to show it.
Drawing the Optical Isomers for Molecules with 2 Chiral Centres
This video demonstrates how to draw optical isomers when there are two chiral centres.
How we Distinguish between Optical Isomers
This video uses a diagram to show how optical isomers can we differentiated.
