MCAT Organic Chemistry Mechanisms Summary

Gold Standard MCAT Prep's MCAT Organic Chemistry Mechanisms and Reactions ('cheat sheet' notes)

This MCAT Organic Chemistry Mechanisms and Reactions Summary is by no means an exhaustive review of MCAT Organic Chemistry. Our summary is only meant to highlight key mechanisms that are most helpful for the new MCAT. Understanding the basics, like electrostatics (opposites attract, like charges repel), helps to minimize memorization and maximize the understanding of MCAT reaction mechanisms.

For a list of MCAT Organic Chemistry topics, check out our MCAT Topics List. You can also access practice questions in our Free MCAT Practice Test, or our many full-length MCAT Practice Tests.
