Organic Chemistry I [E]

A study of the chemistry of carbon compounds. Lectures cover the chemistry of the principal classes of the aliphatic hydrocarbons including nomenclature, molecular structure, stereochemistry, and reactivity. Stress is placed on the relationship among molecular structure, stereochemistry, and chemical reactions of these compounds. Laboratory includes classical techniques of separation and identification of organic compounds as well as modern techniques of instrumentation. Prerequisite: CHM 124 or CHM 114 or CHM 102 (with permission of instructor) with a grade of C or better.
