Course Description

Organic Chemistry I provides a comprehensive study of the chemistry of carbon compounds. This course is for students pursuing an academic transfer degree in chemistry, biology, or chemical engineering, as well as for medical pre-professional students. The course, which includes both lecture and lab components, has three modules, and all three modules must be completed to transfer as a semester-length course. The topics include the structure and properties of carbon compounds; the classification of organic molecules by functional groups; and the structure, properties, reactions, and stereochemistry of alkanes.
