Organic Chemistry I

Course Description

Students will apply many concepts from general chemistry to a study of organic chemistry. They will be able to name, draw, predict products, interpret spectra for, synthesize and explain reaction mechanisms for hydrocarbons and halogenated hydrocarbons, alcohols, ethers and epoxides. The stereo-chemistry of compounds and reactions will be studied. Labs will emphasize preparation, isolation and identification of organic compounds using modern laboratory instrument techniques. (Prerequisite: A grade of "C" or higher in CHEM 102)
