Organic chemistry with all different classes of compounds is presented through the main chemical reactions of each class of organic compounds. The course revolves around shared features and unifying concepts and it emphasizes principles that can be repeatedly applied. Learning on this way, students will see that organic chemistry is integral to biology as well as to their daily lives.

COURSE OBJECTIVE
 To introduce students to organic chemistry.
 To teach about the application to scientific and commercial fields.
 To understand the basics of organic chemistry needed for further studies.
 To learn to use the nomenclature for organic compounds
 To learn the basic structures of organic molecules.
