CHEM 201
Organic Chemistry: Introductory Level Fall 2024
Division III Quantitative/Formal Reasoning

Class Details

This course provides the necessary background in organic chemistry for students who are planning advanced study or a career in chemistry, the biological sciences, or the health professions. It initiates the systematic study of the common classes of organic compounds with emphasis on theories of structure and reactivity. Specific topics include basic organic structures and bonding, delocalization and conjugation, acidity & basicity, nucleophilic addition and substitution reactions, stereochemistry and molecular energetics. The theory and interpretation of infrared (IR) and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, as well as the fundamentals of molecular modeling as applied to organic molecules are presented. The coordinated laboratory work includes organic synthesis, purification and separation techniques, as well as characterization by IR and NMR spectroscopy.
