Ethers, Epoxides, Alcohols

Postby heatfan » Thu Sep 06, 2018 6:09 pm

Hello,

I just wanted to know if ethers, epoxides, and alcohol reactions,Wolff-Kishner, and Wittig reaction are tested on the mcat?

Thanks

Alcohol reactions are especially big. The others are all fair game, but less likely to show up. Organic chemistry on the MCAT is primarily focused on stereochemistry and basic reaction mechanisms (SN1, nucleophilic addition, etc). Named reactions are only a minor focus.

I hope that helps, good luck!
