CHEM 2400H Organic Chemistry I/Lab

(B) Bachelors
Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences
Math, Science and Technology
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. Honors students only. (Description Last Updated: Fall 2013 (201420))
