HN Organic Chemistry

This two-semester introductory course covers the fundamental principles of the chemistry of carbon compounds. It is designed primarily for students interested in pursuing undergraduate degrees in biology, chemistry, engineering, pharmacy, forensic science, or medicine. Topics covered include structure and bonding, stereochemistry, nomenclature, reactions, and properties of aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons, along with their derivatives such as alcohols, esters, ethers, aldehydes, ketones, amines, amides, and others, along with mechanisms. Classroom discussions will be complemented by laboratory investigations where students will gain practical experience in synthesizing and analyzing organic compounds. The course introduces students to organic laboratory techniques, including methods for purification, isolation, synthesis, and analysis of organic compounds. 

This course is offered with a pass/fail option. Under the pass/fail option, a course that is completed with a passing grade will count toward the student's total credit hours but will not be computed in the grade point average.
