CHEM2323: Fundamentals of Organic Chemistry I
CHEM2323 is an undergraduate introductory organic chemistry course. The course will cover three broad topics. We will first talk about the general concepts of organic chemistry: structure, stereochemistry, polarity, thermodynamics, and chemical kinetics. Central part of the course will deal with some important classes of organic compounds—alkyl halides, alkenes, alkynes, and alcohols—and their reactivity. In the final portion of the course, we will see how spectroscopic techniques—nuclear magnetic resonance, infrared spectroscopy, and mass spectrometry—are used to determine the structures of organic molecules.
