Smith, Organic Chemistry, 3rd Edition, McGraw Hill Janice G. Smith, Study Guide and Solutions Manual , McGraw Hill Course Description: Chemistry 251 is the first part of a two-semester sequence covering the most important kinds of organic compounds and the most common organic reactions, with examples of biological and industrial processes involving organic chemistry. It will be necessary for you to learn how to name organic compounds, to draw and understand their structures in two and three dimensions, and to learn how chemical structure and chemical reactivity (reactions) are interrelated. The reactions learned in CEM 251 should be viewed as tools for synthesis of organic molecules. You are expected to propose syntheses of molecules based on the mastery of the reactions you know. This requires you to know your ‘tools’ well in order to use them for synthesis of compounds.
