Course Description

Fundamental principles of organic chemistry are presented (i.e., structure and bonding, physical and chemical properties, and chemical reactions of carbon-containing compounds), emphasizing concepts relevant to health-related field and providing the foundation for the chemical principles underlying human biochemistry and clinical chemistry. Detailed structural and chemical properties are presented on the major functional classes of organic compounds, as well as nomenclature, structure-stability-reactivity relationships, and stereochemical principles. Reaction mechanisms are presented throughout, as well as how organic chemistry applies to biochemical pathways and the structure and function of biologically important compounds.
