Re: Murphy's Law 8: College? What About It?
Yeah, Orgo was actually pretty interesting for me too. If I wasn't taking computer programming classes at the same time, it probably would have been my favorite class. One of the things I did to make my notes more interesting was to assign certain chemicals specific personalities. For instance, sodium borohydride was a regular soldier - just a normal guy who did as he was told, reducing your standard array of things, just being a good reducing agent. Grignards, in comparison, were soldiers who had gone a little bit off the deep end, reducing things like alchols that normal reducing agents wouldn't dare touch. DiBAL was a robotic super-soldier who went around reducing everything without hesitation or discrimination.
