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.
