Lecture 23 - Valence Theory and Constitutional Structure (1858)

Freshman Organic Chemistry I

Yale

Youthful chemists Couper and Kekule replaced radical and type theories with a new approach involving atomic valence and molecular structure, and based on the tetravalence and self-linking of carbon. Valence structures offered the first explanation for isomerism, and led to the invention of nomenclature, notation, and molecular models closely related to those in use today.
