Course Description

Organic Chemistry I is taught in three modules (CHEM 232A, 232B and 232C), all of which must be successfully completed for academic transfer as a semester length course. Topics in this first section include the structure and properties of carbon compounds, the classification of organic molecules by functional groups, acid-based chemistry as it relates to organic chemistry and the structure, properties, stereochemistry and reactions of alkanes. Students registering for this course must also register for CHEM 232AL, which is the laboratory component of the course.
