This course covers traditional material taught in Organic Chemistry, as well as basic organic laboratory techniques, including correct documentation of work in a laboratory notebook, thin layer chromatography, distillation, recrystallization and separations. It will also include various characterization techniques, including IR, gas chromatography, melting point determination, and refractometry. Lastly, it will cover many of the organic transformations and mechanisms covered in most basic organic chemistry lecture courses, including: substitution and elimination reactions, esterification, and a multi-step extractions. This course will also include a presentation component.
