This 4 credit Lecture/Laboratory course offers a comprehensive introduction to basic modern organic chemistry and will be of interest to students majoring in chemistry, biochemistry, biology, and related sciences. Students taking this course will already have been introduced to the principles of organic structure (alkyl halides, alkanes, alkenes, alkynes, alcohols), conformational analysis and stereochemistry. This course will build on these general principles and will include details on the synthesis and reactions of alcohols, ethers, aromatic compounds, aldehydes, ketones, esters, carboxylic acids, amides, amines and derivatives of phenols. You will also expand your ability to design syntheses of organic compounds with various functional groups and will get more practice with retrosynthetic analysis. Interpretation of nuclear magnetic resonance (N MR) spectroscopy will be used a tool to determine chemical structure. Organic chemistry is a multifaceted science that is central to other related sciences including biochemistry and medicinal chemistry.
