52119 Organic chemistry (2)
Course Descriptionis an introduction to organic chemistry, focusing primarily on the basic principles to understand the structure and reactivity of organic molecules. Emphasis principally (Substitution and elimination; halocarbons; alcohol; Thiols& Ethers; aldehyde; ketones; carboxylic acid; esters amide; amines & phenol)
- By the end of this course the students should able to:
- 1. Recognize aldehydes, ketones, carboxylic acids, and the acid derivatives and know the shape of each functional group.
- 2. Understand Substitution and elimination; halocarbons; alcohol; Thiols & Ethers; aldehyde; ketones; carboxylic acid; esters amide; amines & phenol
- 3. Name in a systematic manner simple organic compounds such as carbonyl compounds.
- 4. Construct three-dimensional models of these organic compounds.
- 5. Understand the following simple mechanisms: nucleophilic addition to carbonyl compounds, addition-elimination reactions with acid derivatives.
- 6. Know about organic reactions from Organic Chemistry II that are useful in organic synthesis.
- 7. Recognize the organic reactions from Organic Chemistry I and II that are involved in biochemical pathways.
