HN Organic Chemistry

This is a two semester introductory course to the basic principles of the chemistry of carbon compounds. It is intended primarily for those students wishing to pursue an undergraduate degree in biology, chemistry, engineering, pharmacy, or medicine. Course topics include structure and bonding, stereochemistry, nomenclature, reactions and properties of aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons and their derivatives (including alcohols, esters, ethers, aldehydes, ketones, amines, amides, and others), and mechanisms. Classroom discussions will be extended through laboratory investigations where students will learn to synthesize and analyze organic compounds. Students will be introduced to organic laboratory techniques that include methods for purification, isolation, synthesis, and analysis of organic compounds.
