OSAKA UNIVERSITY CHEMISTRY - BIOLOGY COMBINED MAJOR PROGRAM

Organic Chemistry 1

Outline

The goal of this course is to understand the basic concepts and tools required to study the organic chemistry. The students will learn the basic organic chemistry such as chemical bonding, acidity/basicity, structure of molecules, basic classification, nomenclature, reactions, reaction mechanisms. They will also learn the chemistry related with synthesis and properties of alkanes, alkenes, and alcohols, etc.

Learning outcomes

After successful completion of this course, student will be able to:
1. Predict the structure and properties of organic molecules
2. Predict about the reaction and mechanism involved.
3. Predict the stereochemical aspects of molecules and reactions.
