|Quizzes & Homework
develop understanding and appreciation
for the importance of organic
chemistry and the ubiquitous nature of carbon compounds in everyday life.
- To understand the fundamental relationship between molecular structure and chemical reactivity.
find patterns in the many reactions of carbon compounds by thoroughly
understanding a set of reaction mechanisms and
the patterns of reactivity of
functional groups, and employing basic
synthetic strategies. This semester, we will explore the chemistry of
aromatic compounds, alcohols (and thiols), amines, and carbonyl
containing compounds. We will end by looking at the chemistry of
important biomolecules, such as carbohydrates and proteins.
- To develop basic
competence and confidence in the
use of organic laboratory techniques of
synthesis, separation and characterization.
gain expertise in the hands-on use
of modern spectroscopic tools for
determination of molecular structure, including NMR, IR, and
- To be aware of the historical contexts, developments,
and philosophical presuppositions that have given rise to modern
- To be aware of
the professional responsibility of
chemists for the materials they
make, and to make conscious ethical choices about their
potential uses and abuses.
- To encourage positive, constructive interaction and collaboration amongst students and between students and instructors.
