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.
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.
