CHEM 2400 Organic Chemistry I/Lab

(B) Bachelors
(OS) Halmos Coll of Nat Sci & Ocn
(OCHP) OS - Chemistry and Physics
4 credits

This course and the related lab is the first part of a two-semester sequence that studies the chemistry of carbon compounds, including their structure, nomenclature, preparation, reactions, analysis, spectroscopy, and properties. Reaction mechanisms are stressed within a functional group framework. The laboratory session introduces basic laboratory techniques frequently utilized in organic syntheses. Prerequisite: CHEM 1310 or CHEM 1310H. Frequency: Every Fall and Winter. (Description Last Updated: Summer I 2016 (201650))

Learning Outcomes

  1. Apply the rules of organic nomenclature, including the ability to name organic compounds and draw correct structures from names.
  2. Describe chemical structures and relate them to physical properties of organic compounds.
  3. Correlate molecular structure and spectroscopic behavior.
  4. Describe and apply fundamental reactivity concepts such as acidity, basicity, electrophilicity, nucleophilicity, electron delocalization and rules of resonance.
  5. Describe the mechanisms and outcomes of addition, substitution and elimination reactions of simple organic compounds.
  6. Describe and perform basic organic laboratory techniques.
