CHEM 7A - Organic Chemistry I


5 units
3 hours lecture, 6 hours lab
Prerequisite: CHEM 1B  with a minimum grade of C
Credit, degree applicable
Transfer CSU, UC

This course involves a comprehensive study of the major classes of aliphatic hydrocarbons and of organic halides, alcohols and ethers. This includes nomenclature, structure, properties, stereochemistry, reactions, synthetic methods, and spectroscopy. Emphasis is placed on a systematic approach to understanding the material through the use of bonding theories, energy concepts, kinetics, and reaction mechanisms. In the laboratory, emphasis is on techniques of separation and purification of organic compounds, common organic reactions, and spectroscopy.
