Organic Chemistry 2


Organic Chemistry 2 consists of both Theory and Exercise  session


The primary objective of this course is to understand organic chemistry and to develop critical thinking skills related to the subject matter. The specific objectives are:

1. To learn the nomenclature and physio chemical properties, synthesis and reactions of various functional group includes alcohols, ethers, conjugated alkenes, aromatic compounds, aldehyde and ketones, amines, carboxylic acids and derivatives.

2. To use information from Organic Chemistry I in multiple step transformations of simple organic molecules


Learning outcomes

After successful completion of this course the student:


1. Will have a general knowledge of the properties and reactivity of different classes of organic compounds.


2. Will able to provide reasonable reaction mechanism for any organic reactions.
