Syn Addition and Anti Addition – Enantiomers, Meso Compounds, Constitutional Isomers & Diastereomers


This organic chemistry video tutorial explains the difference between syn addition and anti addition reactions. It discusses how to determine if you get 1 or 2 major products in an electrophilic alkene addition reaction. It also explains how to determine the product will be a pair of enantiomers, diastereomers, meso compounds or constitutional isomers.

Here is a list of topics:
1. Syn Addition vs Anti Addition Stereochemistry
2. Cis and Trans Geometric Isomers of Alkenes
3. Halogenation of Alkenes – Bromination and Chlorination
4. Halohydrin Formation Reaction
5. Syn Hydroxylation Using KMnO4 and OH-
6. Enantiomers vs Diastereomers
7. Meso Compounds
8. Constitutional Isomers vs Stereoisomers
9. Chiral Centers and Symmetrical vs Assymetrical Molecules
10. Chiral Carbon Atoms – 4 Different Groups
11. Epoxidation Reaction Followed by Hydroxylation
12. Hydrogenation of Alkenes Using Deuterium and Platinum Catalyst
