Course Credit: 1
(BCMB, BIOL, CHPY, NEUR)
The fundamental principles of structure, bonding, and reactivity of organic compounds are introduced. Content focuses on functional groups, reaction mechanisms, spectroscopic techniques, data interpretation, and introductory synthetic methods. Critical thinking, application of general concepts to new examples, and problem-solving skills are emphasized. Laboratory experiments incorporate key synthetic organic laboratory skills, reactions, techniques, and instrumentation. The experiments promote independence, information literacy, safety, writing skills, and laboratory competency. Three class hours and one three-hour laboratory period per week. Prerequisite(s): CHEM 11200 , minimum grade C-.; CHEM-21100L Annually. [MNS]
