CHEM*2700 (Organic Chemistry I)
Course description: An introduction to organic chemistry, stereochemistry, discussion of the major mechanisms and related reactions: nucleophilic substitution and elimination, electrophilic addition, free radical reactions, electrophilic aromatic substitution, nucleophilic addition and nucleophilic acyl substitution.
CHEM*3750 (Organic Chemistry II)
Course description: A continuation of the coverage of fundamental aspects of organic chemistry using an assimilation of carbonyl chemistry, unsaturated systems and carbon-carbon bond forming processes to acquaint students with methods of organic synthesis. Topics also include an introduction to spectroscopic methods for the identification of organic compounds.
CHEM*3760 (Organic Chemistry III)
Course description: An in-depth treatment of various aspects of organic chemistry. This will include such topics as the chemistry of heterocycles, bio-organic chemistry, polar rearrangements, organic photochemistry and a detailed discussion of organic spectroscopy.
Prerequisite(s): CHEM*2070, CHEM*3750
CHEM*4730 (Synthetic Organic Chemistry)
Course description: Introduction to synthetic organic chemistry, including discussion of retrosynthetic analysis, natural products and organic reactions. The integration of these topics for the rational design of synthetic schemes will also be discussed.
