Structure of Organic Molecules
CHEM XL 14C
This course is a continuation of organic chemistry in the organic chemistry series. This course is geared towards pre-medical and pre-health students and is the third course in the general and organic chemistry series.
What you can learn.
- Expand your knowledge of organic molecular structures
- Explore select topics in structural theories such as resonance, conjugation, and stereochemistry
- Understand how molecular structure controls chemical reactivity
- Recognize polar covalent bonds and functional groups
- Interpret MS, IR, and NMR spectral data of unknown organic compounds
- Determine molecular structures of unknown organic compounds
About this course:This course presents continuing studies in the structure of organic molecules, with emphasis on biological applications. Topics include resonance, stereochemistry, conjugation, and aromaticity; spectroscopy (NMR, IR, and mass spectrometry); introduction to the effects of structure on physical and chemical properties; and survey of biomolecular structure. Transferable for UC credit.
CHEM 14B with a grade of C- or better.
