CHM-201 Organic Chemistry I

A mechanism-based organic chemistry course designed for students that plan to transfer. Topics include: nomenclature of all organic functional groups, molecular orbital theory, isomers, stereochemistry, elementary step mechanisms including proton transfer, coordination, heterolysis, nucleophilic addition, nucleophile elimination, electrophilic addition, electrophile elimination, carbocation rearrangement nucleophilic substitution 2, and bimolecular elimination 2 as well as multistep mechanisms including nucleophilic substitution 1 and elimination 1. The course applies these topics to organic syntheses and biomolecules.
