Organic Chemistry

Course Description

This course explores the physical properties and chemical behavior of important classes of organic compounds, focusing on alkynes, polyenes, aromatic compounds; alcohols, thiols, and ethers; and aldehydes and ketones and their derivatives. Retrosynthesis, spectroscopic structure determination, and the reaction mechanism will be examined in the course. Laboratory experiments will involve the synthesis of simple compounds and the characterization of those compounds using chromatography and infrared (IR), ultraviolet-visible (UV-Vis), and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy. This course is for chemistry majors or those in closely-allied fields such as biochemistry and chemical engineering.
