Academic Year: 2019-2020
Students discuss the classification of organic compounds, nomenclature using IUPAC and common and trade names of many industrial chemicals. They will explore factors affecting boiling point and solubility, the theory of extractions and separations, preparation and reactions of alkanes, alkenes and alkyl halides, sources and uses of hydrocarbons, stereochemistry, and structure determination using IR and NMR spectroscopy. Students will enhance this theory-based education with virtual laboratory experiences.
