Organic Chemistry I (CHM 2210-13172) Summer 2011 Instructor: David L. Flanigan, Ph.D. Office: BSCI 107A Phone: (813) 253-7905 Email: Office Hours: By appointment only Course Materials: Organic Chemistry , Wade, 7 th Edition Solutions Manual for Organic Chemistry , Wade, 7 th Edition Molecular Model Kit Course Description: 4 credit hours. Organic chemistry is one of the most interesting and practical areas of chemistry. Many of the materials we handle each day are products of organic chemistry. Living systems are also organic in nature, so organic chemistry provides a foundation for understanding the chemical processes and reactions in living systems. This course will focus on synthesis and reactions of organic compounds, with emphasis on fundamental principles, theories, synthesis, and reaction mechanisms. Course Content: The following chapters of the text will be covered in this course: Chapter 1: Introduction and Review Chapter 2: Structure and Properties of Organic Molecules Chapter 3: Structure and Stereochemistry of Alkanes Chapter 4: The Study of Chemical Reactions Chapter 5: Stereochemistry Chapter 6: Alkyl Halides: Nucleophilic Substitution and Elimination Chapter 7: Structure and Synthesis of Alkenes Chapter 8: Reactions of Alkenes Chapter 9: Alkynes Chapter 10: Structure and Synthesis of Alcohols Chapter 11: Reactions of Alcohols Lectures : The lectures will be held in BSCI 211 from 9:00-11:45am on Mondays and Wednesdays during which time the students will be introduced to general topics from the text. Before coming to each lecture, students are expected to briefly scan the chapter in the text to become familiar with the terminology and with the concepts that will be discussed in more detail. The lectures will make extensive use of the whiteboard, rather than Powerpoint, overheads, or other media, and thus students will need to create their own notes based on these lectures. Notes will NOT be available from the instructor. Students must be actively engaged during the lecture to do well during this course. Students
