This is one of the most important topics in JEE and medical examinations. We deal with the mechanism and many examples of the decarboxylation so that there's nothing to cram in this wonderful subject.

Thankyou bhaiya for these helpful videos. Will be your neighbour at IITB campus from 2018 and you'll be one of the reason for my success. These videos are really helpful. Thankyou very much! May I know till what date you'll be completing the whole organic chem? I am following MS Chauhan alongwith your lectures. Is it okay? And I have one request. It'll be very helpful if you could attatch PDF of slides of every video alongwith the video, so that I don't have to screenshot each and every slide of every video, as I don't have time for making notes right now, so am just taking screenshots and will print them later. It'll be time saving. Thankyou!

I want to provide the pdf but I'll have to design a website for that first. It will take some time. And you can follow MS Chauhan for it.

You can provide lecture slides PDF in the description box if possible to do so, just a suggestion. Thankyou very much!

stop excuses my friends, he's doing YouTube videos as well as unacademy videos although he's a student of IIT Bombay. He has to read his study stuffs. If He can do These kind of things for us beyond his study, so why don't you make notes bcoz duration of videos only 10-11 mins and notes are take approximately 10 mins. So Please appreciate his kind effort my dear friends.

It takes me nearly 20 mins to write all the notes from the slides..

haha. No dear you have to fast the speed of note making. Maybe in silly way so that atleast you'll able to understand by yourself. So do such kind of notes. While I'm doing self notes at the moment of seeing video ,my concepts are almost 95% clarified. So it helps to me up to larger extent.

@Twinkle William maam, I didn't ask for anything more. What he's doing is way above expectations. I just asked to attatch the slides in the description which he already includes in his video. Just that, no extra work.

The slides can't be attached here. If that would've been impossible; it would already have been done :)

bhaiya 1 doubt .. in 3rd slide Q(i) jaha pe aapne resonance structures ko draw kia hai..waha pe to 2nd resonance structure jyada stable hai na(as -ve charge is on more electronegative O atom ) to hume usi structure ko use krna chahiye na?as u have done in last question of last slide

You can use that too. The answer will be the same as later tautomerisation occurs.

amaan bro plz reply , is sir has completed ethers and carnohydrates..? as i cant find these both lessons in sachin sir organic playlist plz reply !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
In beta keto acids in the 2 que you write two resonance structures but the 2nd structure is more stable so why doesn't the reaction continue on the 2nd structure
Sachin Rana

The answer will be the same because at the end tautomerisation will occur.

Bhaiya, in the decarboxylation of B-keto acids. At resonance stage the H(+) can go with Oxygen to and hence alcohol can also be formed. Then why only one product here?
Sachin Rana

You can form that too. And later tautomerise that to ketone.
any role of CaO in the last example of today's video, i.e. decarboxylation reaction?

Dehydrating agent as NaOH is hygroscopic in nature.

At the final step of mechanism, you said carbanion is converted into alkane using H+ from H2O. If CaO is acting like dehydrating agent, then where does water come from?
