CH 201 Organic Chemistry I

A study of the correlation of acid-base theory, reaction mechanisms, molecular structure, chemical energetics, stereochemistry, and spectroscopy, applied to organic functional groups, specifically alkanes, alkenes, alkynes, alky halides, alcohols and ethers. Laboratory work stresses the synthesis, separation, identification and analysis of selected organic compounds using both micro- and macro-scale techniques. 1H- NMR spectra are routinely acquired and analyzed.

Three class hours and three laboratory hours weekly.

Prerequisite: CH 102  or CH 112 .
