Course description and aims

This course covers fundamentals of organic chemistry such as chemical bonding and structures, and typical organic reactions. Basic topics include formation and nature of bonding, hybrid orbitals, isomers, and acid-base theory. To understand organic reactions, types and features of substitution reactions, elimination reactions, and addition reactions are discussed.
As one of the science and engineering basic courses required by all Tokyo Tech students, this course provides essential contents of organic chemistry in chemistry field. Students will acquire general knowledge, methods and way of thinking on chemistry.

Student learning outcomes

By the end of this course, students will be able to:
1) Explain basic concepts of bonding, structures, and properties of organic compounds.
2) Explain and draw structure, reaction, and resonance formulas of organic compounds.
3) Explain types and features of basic organic reactions.

Keywords

organic compound, bond, structure, acid-base, organic reaction

Competencies that will be developed

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

Class flow

Basically, each class covers one chapter in the textbook according to the course schedule. Each class consists of outline of basic topics, explanation of exercise problems, and introduction of related topics. Students are required to learn outside of the classroom for preparation and review purposes under the instructor's guidance.

Course schedule/Required learning

Class 2 Shape of organic molecules Constitutional isomers, stereoisomers, conformation, cycloalkanes Read chapter 2 in the textbook and understand basic knowledge. Solve related exercise problems.
Class 3 Bond polarization and acid-base theory Functional groups, inductive and resonance effects Read chapter 3 in the textbook and understand basic knowledge. Solve related exercise problems.
Class 4 Organic reaction I Nucleophilic substitution and elimination of alkyl halides Read chapter 4 in the textbook and understand basic knowledge. Solve related exercise problems.
Class 5 Organic reactions II Electrophilic addition to alkenes, conjugation Read chapter 5 in the textbook and understand basic knowledge. Solve related exercise problems.
Class 6 Aromatic compounds Aromaticity, electrophilic substitution, directing effects Read chapter 6 in the textbook and understand basic knowledge. Solve related exercise problems.
Class 7 Carbonyl compounds Reactions of aldehydes and ketones, reactions of carboxylic acids and their derivatives Read chapter 7 in the textbook and understand basic knowledge. Solve related exercise problems.

Out-of-Class Study Time (Preparation and Review)

To enhance effective learning, students are encouraged to spend approximately 100 minutes preparing for class and another 100 minutes reviewing class content afterwards (including assignments) for each class.
They should do so by referring to textbooks and other course material.
