This is the first of a two-course sequence of introductory organic chemistry. The physical and chemical properties of organic compounds, including aliphatics, alicyclics, and aromatics are studied through an examination of their structure, preparation, reactivity, and spectral properties. The study of organic functionality centers in the hydroxyl and carbonyl groups. The laboratory component includes separation and purification techniques and other synthetic procedures.
