This course will examine the tools - both theoretical and experimental - that the modern chemist has at his or her disposal for studying properties of organic compounds What is expected: A working knowledge of General Chemistry (Chem 103a and 103b) Analytical thinking. This class is not (only) about memorization - it is also about thorough, in-depth understanding When given an example of a compound or experimental observation of an organic reaction, you should be able to: - recognize class of organic compounds - write down a reasonable mechanism for the reaction - decide whether existing theories can explain the observed reactivity - design new experiments to test your proposed mechanism - evaluate the validity of others' explanations
