CHEM 211 - Organic Chemistry I


3 credits
First semester of a two-semester course designed to provide a sound foundation in the fundamental principles and basic reactions of organic chemistry. The course illustrates how three-dimensional structure effects the physical properties and the reactivity of organic compounds. Simple hydrocarbons (alkanes, alkenes, and alkynes) and alkyl halides are used to introduce the concepts of structural isomerism, stereoisomerism, reaction kinetics, thermodynamics, reaction mechanisms, and limited synthetic strategies. A one-credit laboratory class (CHEM 213 ) is also required to complete the organic chemistry requirement. The course consists of three 1-hour lecture periods per week.

Prerequisite(s): No grade lower than C- in CHEM 111  
Corequisite(s): None
