Section Description

This is a one semester survey of some of the foundational principles of organic chemistry including bonding, hybridization, resonance theory, isomerism, conformations of cyclic and acyclic alkanes, stereoisomerism, chirality, optical properties of stereoisomers, and implications for living organisms. In terms of functional group chemistry, the course covers, nomenclature, reactions of and ways to synthesize alkenes, alkynes, arenes, halo alkanes, alcohols, phenols, ethers, aldehydes, ketones, carboxylic acids, esters, amides, acid chlorides, anhydrides and amines as well as the corresponding mechanisms for these reactions.

Section Expectation

Lectures, exams, and homework quizzes are online. Participation is required.


Students are evaluated upon their performance on weekly exams, a final exam, and homework quizzes.
