organic and biological chemistry comprise the chemistry of carbon-containing
compounds, which are natural (e.g. foods, fuel, perfumes) as well as synthetic
(e.g. soaps, textile fabrics, pharmaceuticals). This course investigates some
key areas in organic chemistry: shape, conformation, stereochemistry, and
chemical properties of organic and biological compounds. Reactions and
reactivity of aliphatic derivatives, olefins and aromatic compounds will be
considered with particular reference to spatial and electronic effects. The
experiments performed in the lab will help students understand key organic
concepts and develop their synthetic/analytical skills.
