CHM-260 Organic Chemistry I

This course is a study of the fundamental classes of organic compounds, with emphasis on the relationship of structure and reactivity. Electronic theory, energy relationships, stereochemistry, and reaction mechanisms are used to explain reactivity. Molecular modeling is emphasized, particularly with respect to electrostatic potential maps. Practical applications, including syntheses, are studied and carried out in the laboratory. Instrumentation such as UV, IR, NMR, HPLC, and GC/MS are routinely used as qualitative and quantitative tools. Lecture [3.00], Laboratory [3.00].
