There are several ways to get in touch with me if you have a question about one of my courses, or you just want to sit back and talk about Organic Chemistry. My office is Room 517, Level 5 of the School of Chemistry. I have office hours during semester 10:30 to 11:30 on Wednesdays. Office hours are when I'm guaranteed to be available either in the office or online. It's very likely at other times I'll be busy (we do research when we're not teaching), so you can try to email me to set up an appointment. If you see me in the School, or generally around, just talk to me about science.<br>

Notes

It's very important to realise that we may not go through everything in class. Handouts remain the best guide to what is examinable. A better guide: past papers.

An Example Worked Answer to Illustrate Allocation of Marks

So there are old-style PDF handouts, for reference, but you should use the wiki pages which have more detail/description. Best thing to do, if you're worried about the exam, is to do past papers. If you want to change the wiki pages, please do so, but you might want to just flag that with me first.

Some sources/books:

There is a very nice online series of notes on pericyclic reactions from Tim Wallace (University of Manchester)

If you use Wikipedia, be aware it might be wrong. If it is, don't complain - fix it.

How to Interact with Mat if you're a Sydney Chem Student

There are several ways to get in touch with me if you have a question about one of my courses, or you just want to sit back and talk about Organic Chemistry. My office is Room 517, Level 5 of the School of Chemistry. I have office hours during semester 10:30 to 11:30 on Wednesdays - no need to make an appointment, just drop by. Office hours are when I'm guaranteed to be available either in the office or online. It's very likely at other times I'll be busy (we do research when we're not teaching), so you can try to email me to set up an appointment. If you see me in the School, or generally around, just talk to me about science - I enjoy that.

Online, you can send me a tweet, leave a message on Facebook or step up to Mat's Google+ account (please post "publicly"). These tools are really good because everyone else can see what we're talking about. If none of these work, Blackboard is always an option, if you must.

If you just want to zone out and watch some organic chemistry demos, check this out.
