Organic Chemistry I Universiti Teknologi Malaysia
This course discusses the chemistry of alkanes and the fundamental concepts of functional groups in organic compounds. The functional groups include alkenes, alkynes, aromatic hydrocarbons, alcohols, phenols, organohalogens, ethers, epoxides, and their derivatives. In each topic, the students will be introduced to the structures of the functional groups and the nomenclatures (common names and IUPAC names). Physical properties, preparations, reactions and visual tests will also be discussed. Inter-conversion of the related functional groups and their reaction mechanisms are also included.
1. Applynames and properties of organic compounds according to their functional groups. 2. Describe chemical reactions to synthesise organic compounds and inter conversion to different functional groups. 3. Explain mechanisms and intermediates in organic reactions based on stability of reactive species and stereochemistry.
