Alkynes. Conjugation in Allylic Intermediates, Addition to Acetylenes and Dienes - Freshman Organic Chemistry - Michael McBride - Lecture 17 of 38 - Video-lecture

Video-lecture, Organic Chemistry

Description: Because of their unusual acidity very strong base makes it possible to isomerize an internal acetylene to the less stable terminal isomer. Many chemical reactions may be understood in terms of localized bonds, but the special stability of conjugated systems requires considering delocalized orbitals or resonance.
