CHEM 2411 Organic Chemistry I 3/0/3

Prerequisite: ( CHEM 1212 with a minimum grade of C or CHEM 1212K with a minimum grade of C ) and CHEM 2411L

The first course of a two semester sequence which provides a broad introduction to the basic principles, theories and applications of the chemistry of carbon compounds. Topics will include modern structural theory, organic nomenclature, stereochemistry, reaction mechanisms and kinetics, and an introduction to functional group chemistry. Also covers the interpretation of IR, NMR, and mass spectroscopy for the structure determination of organic compounds. CHEM 2411L may be taken concurrently.
