Learning Goals for
Organic Chemistry I (335)
On completion of this course, students should
- know the structure, bonding, nomenclature, reactivity, properties,
and preparations for alkanes, alkenes, alkynes, alcohols, ethers,
and alkyl halides.
- understand the principles of reaction mechanisms and stereochemistry
for the chemistry of these same functional groups.
- be able to apply knowledge of reactions to analyze structures of
molecules and propose schemes for their synthesis.
- understand the principles of spectroscopic methods and be able to
deduce molecular structures from spectra.
