CHEM 207 - Organic Chemistry I
An in-depth course which covers structure, properties, preparation and reactions of the principal classes of organic compounds. Emphasis is on reaction mechanisms, discussed in the context of transition state theory, and on the relationships between structure, properties and reactivity. Laboratory work, coordinated with lectures, introduces the standard techniques (distillation and reflux, crystallization and melting points, extraction, column and gas chromatography, IR and UV-VIS spectroscopy) used in synthesis, purification and identification of organic compounds, and illustrates some typical reactions of alkanes, alkenes and alcohols. Prerequisite: CHEM 108 Principles of Chemistry and Quantitative Analysis.
