Organic Chemistry is one of the foundational subjects for students who want to be biology, chemistry, or pre-medical majors in college. This course will introduce students to many of the very interesting and useful concepts found in a typical college organic chemistry curriculum but at an introductory level. The course covers the properties, reactions, structural shape, and synthesis of various “classic” organic compounds. The course also includes the basic organic reaction types and mechanisms like elimination, substitution, and addition. Students will learn how to use data to determine the reaction mechanism for a synthesis and the structural formula of an organic compound.
