Course Objectives The course aims at equipping the students with common organic chemistry knowledge, including general structures of biological molecules and the reactions between them. Moreover, it also focuses on techniques used of determination of the structure of organic compounds.
Textbook Wade -Organic Chemistry 8th edition, Pearson; Bruice - Essential Organic Chemistry, 2nd edition, Pearson; Soderberg - Organic Chemistry with a Biological Emphasis, Vol.1,
Learning Outcomes After successful  completion of the course, the student will be able to:
  1. Draw structures of organic compounds
  2. Analyze chiral molecules
  3. Determine propper distribution of electrons in molecules
  4. Discuss experimental structure determination
  5. Solve addition, substitution, transfer and acid-base reactions
Teaching Methods Lecturing. Class discussions with examples and problem solving. Lab tutorials.
