Course Description

Goals: To develop a broad understanding of practical and theoretical concepts of organic chemistry. Molecular orbital theory and valence bond resonance theory are invoked to describe and explain the reaction of organic molecules. Thermodynamic considerations of 3-dimensional molecular shape are discussed. Instrumental techniques for the assignment of molecular structure are a focus. Modern mechanistic theory of organic chemical reactions is developed in detail. Content: Introduction to nomenclature, acid/base chemistry in context of organic chemistry, stereochemistry, and an overview of reaction types including substitution, addition, elimination and rearrangement. Some spectroscopy (IR, MS) is also covered. Taught: Annually, fall Prerequisite: CHEM 1140 or CHEM 1500 (grades C- or better) or instructor permission NOTE: Students must concurrently register for a lecture and a corresponding 0-credit lab section of this course. Credits: 4
