Course Description
 
 
Organic Chemistry I (Lec/Lab)
 
(4-3-4) Fundamental principles of organic
chemistry will be studied, including the
structure, bonding, properties, and reactivity of
organic molecules; and properties and behavior of
organic compounds and their derivatives. Emphasis
is placed on organic synthesis and mechanisms.
Includes study of covalent and ionic bonding,
nomenclature, stereochemistry, structure and
reactivity, reaction mechanisms, functional
groups, and synthesis of simple molecules.
Laboratory activities will reinforce fundamental
principles of organic chemistry, including the
structure, bonding, properties, and reactivity of
organic molecules; and properties and behavior of
organic compounds and their derivatives. Methods
for the purification and identification of
organic compounds will be examined. This course
is intended for students in science or
pre-professional programs.
