Syllabus for Spring 2012
The required textbook for this course is Organic Chemistry, 3rd ed., by Janice Smith. A Study Guide / Solutions Manual is also available. Buy a set of molecular models, for example: HGS Molecular Structure Model Kit W.H. Freeman & Co. ISBN: 0716748207
This course is the first part of a two-part introduction to the principles of organic chemistry, the chemistry of the compounds of carbon. The content can be classified as structure, reactivity, and synthesis. You will learn how atoms are joined together in organic compounds, how their structure affects their bulk properties, how we can gain information about the structure of unknown organic compounds, and how organic compounds are transformed into other organic compounds. We will study the structure and reactivity of the major classes of organic compounds. Upon completing the course, students will have the ability to analyze simple organic reactions and predict the outcome of reactions, even ones that have not explicitly been discussed.
