(CHEM 351) Organic Chemistry I
Study of the structure, stereochemistry, reactions, reaction mechanisms, preparations, and properties of the principal classes of carbon compounds.
Course Learning Outcomes
To gain a working knowledge of organic chemistry and how it applies to the field of biochemistry through the following:
- To be able to properly name organic molecules.
- To understand the importance of three-dimensional structures and how this can influence chemical reactivity.
- To be able to predict reactivity and product formation with given starting materials and reaction conditions.
- To learn how to draw organic reaction mechanisms using arrows and movement of electrons.
- To develop the ability to logically approach complex problems and think critically about how to solve them.
