2016-2017 Undergraduate Catalog

CHEM 201 Organic Chemistry I

A two-tiered approach to organic chemistry is taken. CHM 201 is a one semester survey of the fundamentals of organic chemistry. Basic structure, bonding, nomenclature, stereochemistry, properties, and reactions of organic molecules are examined. The second course (CHM 301) covers the same topics, but to a much greater extent and theoretical depth. Major emphasis is placed on reaction mechanisms and much new material is covered especially in the areas of spectroscopy, bonding theory, and structure/proerty relationships. (Three hours lecture and three hours lab per week.)Prerequisite: CHM 112 or equivalent. (Offered fall semester.)
