Pedagogical Approach:

The complete one-year course will present fundamental principles and concepts of organic chemistry including, but not limited to:

  • structure,
  • bonding,
  • nomenclature,
  • stereochemistry and
  • functional groups with emphasis on reactions and reaction mechanisms of alkanes, alkenes, alkynes, alkyl halides, aromatic compounds, alcohols, phenols, ethers, carbonyl compounds, carboxylic acids, amines and their derivatives.

Special emphasis is placed on

  • multi-step synthesis,
  • reaction mechanisms,
  • stereochemistry of reactions and
  • structure elucidation using modern instrumental methods.

In addition, an introduction to bio-molecules is presented.

Laboratory Activities:

The laboratory work includes:

  • multistep synthesis and characterization of organic molecules using analytical instrumentation such as FT-IR and GC.
  • Traditional separation and purification techniques are used as distillation, liquid-liquid extraction, and recrystallization.
Outcomes:

At the conclusion of this course, the student should be able to:

The American Chemical Society (ACS) Organic Chemistry Guide and the Organic Chemistry examinations provide information on topics and indicate an appropriate level of this sequence of courses, including learning goals and objectives. At the conclusion of the course, each student should be able to employ standard laboratory concepts appropriate to the course content.
