Prerequisites

General Chemistry

Intended learning outcomes

The course will give fundamental knowledge of organic chemistry. After completed course the student must be able to:

  • Identify different functional groups in organic chemistry
  • Give name to organic compounds
  • Describe the structure and properties of organic molecules
  • Account for common reaction types and transformations
  • Describe some different basic reaction mechanisms
  • Utilize elementary organic chemical laboratory technique

Course content

  • Nomenclature
  • Structure and physical properties of most common substances representing different functional groups
  • Basic reactions and transformations
  • Simple reaction mechanisms
  • Stereochemistry
  • Conversion of molecules synthetic or in biological systems
  • Common natural products
  • Handling of chemicals and safety risks
  • Synthetic procedures and principles of purification

Teaching and working methods

Theoretical aspects are daily presented in lectures. Problem solving is studied during lessons. In the laboratory the students are trained in organic chemical laboratory techniques in relation to the theoretical part of the course.
Special laboratory facilities are needed.
