A modern treatment of organic chemistry which integrates fact and theory. The study of structure and its relation to properties, reactions, and reaction mechanisms is emphasized. Both aliphatic and aromatic compounds are studied in the first semester along with an introduction to stereochemistry and conformational analysis. The laboratory experiences include syntheses of a variety of organic compounds with an emphasis on basic laboratory techniques. The fundamental techniques of infrared spectroscopy and gas chromatography are also introduced. Fall semester only. Three class hours, four laboratory hours.
Prerequisite: CHE 152 with a grade of C- or higher.
