Organic Chemistry I & Laboratory

PREREQUISITE: CHEM-UA 0126 OR (CHEM-UA 0102 AND CHEM-UA 0104) OR (CHEM-UA 0110 AND CHEM-UA 0112) OR (SCIEN-AD 107 AND SCIEN-AD 108 AND SCIEN-AD 110) WITH A MINIMUM GRADE OF C.

This course constitutes an introduction to the chemistry of organic compounds. The material is presented in the functional group framework, incorporating reaction mechanisms. Topics include structure and bonding of organic materials, nomenclature, conformational analysis, stereochemistry, spectroscopy, and reactions of aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons, alcohols, ethers, amines, and carbonyl compounds. Multifunctional organic compounds are covered, including topics of relevance to biochemistry, such as carbohydrates, amino acids, peptides, and nucleic acids. Laboratories provide training in the basic techniques of the organic chemistry laboratory, including crystallization, distillation, extraction, and other separation techniques, such as column chromatography. Experiments involving the synthesis of organic compounds are introduced, as well as qualitative organic analysis.
