CHE*201*10 Description

Organic Chemistry I

This two-semester sequence is concerned with the molecular architecture and chemical reactivity of a broad spectrum of organic molecules, including aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons, their halogenated derivatives, and molecules containing oxygen and nitrogen, alone or in one or more combinations. Particular emphasis is placed on the structure and function of organic molecules important in biological systems. Heavy emphasis is given to the study of reaction mechanisms. Three hours of lecture and three hours of laboratory each week. Prerequisite(s): CHE 112
