Course description and aims

Organic Chemistry I is the first course of a fundamental introduction to the science of organic chemistry.
In Organic Chemistry I, the basic concepts of organic chemistry, structures of organic molecules, and reaction mechanisms of fundamental organic transformations are overviewed.

Student learning outcomes

By the end of this course, students will be able to understand the basic concepts of organic chemistry, structures of organic compounds, and mechanisms of organic reactions.
Students will be able to understand the structures, properties, and reactivities of alkanes, cycloalkanes, alkyl halides, alcohols, ethers, alkenes, and alkynes.

Keywords

Bonding of organic molecules, stereochemistry, reactivity, nomenclature, concept of acid and base, reaction mechanism

Competencies that will be developed

Intercultural skills Communication skills Specialist skills Critical thinking skills Practical and/or problem-solving skills
