CHEM 241. Organic Chemistry I

Credits 3.00 PeopleSoft Course ID 008244

The major objective for this course is to teach the modern method of scientific problem solving using organic compounds as models. Emphasis will be on the chemical language (nomenclature and terminology), molecular electronic concepts, and stereochemistry followed by a brief survey of chemical reactions/mechanisms. Functional groups studied include alkyl halides, alcohols, alkenes, alkynes, carbonyl additions, carboxylic acids and their derivatives as well as alpha-carbon chemistry leading to the ability to perform multi-step synthetic problems.   Credit cannot be earned in both CHEM 241L  and CHEM 242L . Prerequisite: Grade of "C-" or higher in CHEM 132 . Prerequisite: Grade of "C-" or higher in CHEM 132 .
