How To Study Organic Chemistry For NEET

How to master the organic chemistry is easy provided you follow disciplined path and focus more on learning concepts rather than by hearting it. Studying organic chemistry becomes fun when you start learning the basics first and then try to apply the concepts later.

Most of the students who want to apply the concept rather than to understand it first often struggle. You cannot compromise on your basics in organic chemistry. You must be thorough in basic concepts of organic chemistry first. So your journey actually starts from your class 11 when you start learning those basic concepts. Your grade 12 organic chemistry is the application of those concepts.
Organic chemistry is the most integrated network of concepts in chemistry.
The main topics which you should focus on first can be summarized as
IUPAC nomenclature, Covalent bond fission, reaction intermediates, electron displacement methods, Nucleophile and electrophiles, types of organic reactions,

Alkanes - Conformations: Sawhorse and Newman projections (of ethane); Mechanism of halogenation of alkanes.

Alkenes - Geometrical isomerism; Mechanism of electrophilic addition: addition of hydrogen, halogens, water, hydrogen halides (Markownikoff’s and peroxide effect); Ozonolysis, oxidation, and polymerization.

Alkynes - Acidic character; Addition of hydrogen, halogens, water and hydrogen halides; Polymerization.

Aromatic hydrocarbons - Nomenclature, benzene - structure and aromaticity; Mechanism of electrophilic substitution: halogenation, nitration, Friedel - Craft’s alkylation and acylation, directive influence of functional group in mono-substituted benzene

 Acids and Bases- relative strength
There are few things for you to take a note of
Consistently practice problems: After you understand a concept you need to solve some questions. When you attend a class, you need to make a notebook and write short notes. Always begin with NCERT and solve as many questions as you can for that particular topic.

This should be your routine- after the class do some questions from the very topic and make short notes. Always begin with simple and direct questions and then explore some difficult ones.

You should not try those questions that you have not studied yet. Use one good reference in organic chemistry for theory and practice as many problems as you can at the end of the chapter.

One of the main issue with organic chemistry is remembering the reactions. See it is impossible to just memorize a topic without understanding and understanding of the reaction comes from the MECHANISM of the reaction. When you study a reaction try to write its mechanism two to three times .That will reinforce your concept and remembering the reaction becomes easy.

When you finish a chapter in organic chemistry, write the reactions in detail in your note book but don’t forget to write a very brief note of all those reactions at the end. A very brief note of all those reactions at the end should help you in revision and it will give you a short overview of the chapter also which ultimately helps in remembering the reactions.

One of the KEY STRATEGY is to write the mistakes you make in a chapter and revise it regularly so as to remove those mistakes.
