BosonOffice: Marshak 1018E-mail: [email protected]Office Hours:Tue, Wed, and Thu 3:30 PM – 5:00 PM; others by appointmentCourse Description:This course involves systematic study of organic compounds, nomenclature, methods of preparation, physical andchemical properties (reactions), and mechanisms. Emphasis will be given to solving problems in each chapter.Required Textbook:Organic Chemistry byT. W. Graham Solomons & Craig B. Fryhle, 11th edition, by Wiley. ISBN 9781118566893 - Binder ready version packaged with WileyPLUS.ISBN 9781118675052 - Electronic All Access PackOr, you can use the 10thedition by the same author.TheText is available at the Wiley Website (direct buy): . The package includes the OrganicChemistry 10th Edition Unbound with Study Guide/Solutions Manual and the WileyPLUS Set. The package alsoincludes the binders. To access WileyPLUS, you must register: See instructions on last page. This package is alsoavailable at the CCNY Bookstore.Molecular models:My choice is, “The Prentice Hall Molecular Model Set for Organic Chemistry -- Edition 2”.(Dr. Darling’s) are available in the bookstore and on the internet (KIT #1 ISBN 0-9648837-1-6). Other suitable set of your choice is also acceptable.Problems: The assigned problems are a very important part of the course. You are responsible for all problems,within and at the end of each chapter. If you can do the problems, you should do well on the exams.Optional Study Aid:(i)Study Guide/Solutions Manual. (Recommended)(ii) Molecular Model SetCourse Objective and Expectations:
To study the structures, preparations, reactions and usage of different families of organic compounds includingcompounds of biological importance. Upon successful completion of the course, the students are expected to: (1)name common organic compounds, draw structures, (2) relate functional groups with their chemical and physicalbehaviors (3) propose reasonable methods for synthesizing different organic compounds, (4) predict reactionmechanisms, (5) distinguish organic compounds by simple chemical tests, and (6) understand chemical processesin biological systems.Course Learning OutcomesAfter completing this course, students should be able to understand:Unsaturated conjugated systems.Orbital conjugation and molecular orbital diagrams.The Diels Alder reaction mechanistically and strategically.Aromatic chemistry: including MO of benzene, Huckel’s rule, nomenclature, and associated physicalproperties.
