OVERVIEW OF COURSES
CBU Courses in Organic Chemistry
Every other year
A study of organic reaction mechanisms, condensation reactions, symmetry-controlled reactions and a survey of heterocyclic chemistry. Course includes lab component.
This course is an introduction to the chemistry of carbon compounds, both aliphatic and aromatic, and involves a survey of the major functional groups. Emphasis is placed on the close connections between modern organic, biology and biochemistry. Course includes lab component.
This course introduces the student to the major types of organic reactions. Reaction mechanisms and the role of intermediates are discussed, as are topics in stereochemistry and spectroscopy, IR, NMR, UV-VIS and mass spectroscopy. Course includes lab component.
