I posted this a few days ago, but I think it was part of the posts that got deleted when Richard did some work on the site. So I'm posting again the song parody I made up for my organic chemistry class. I made a bunch, but I'll start y'all off with Killer Orgo (If you don't know o-chem then it might not make much sense). Enjoy! To those who already responded - thank you for the kind comments!
Benzene is pretty stable, ‘cause it’s aromatic
Cyclobutyldiene isn’t, it’s the opposite
But don’t they look the same? It can be a real pain!
Halogens are reactive but not fluorine why???
C 13 and NMR, stereoisomers
It’s a killer orgo
Sn1, Sn2, enantiomers, toluene blue
Guaranteed to blow your mind!
Ooooo…We mustn’t forget “4n”, ‘cause it’ll help you in the end!
I wanna cry!
To avoid a real blow out, you should never wait till the end
To start studying, or all the info might start to blend!
Now we’ve got nitration, and, of course, sulfonation.
But what about all the reactions, that we have to know?
Oh they can be so confusing, (naturally), but don’t forget the loan pairs, quite hideous and tricky!
Gott über alles
