About This Course
Chemistry 304 offers a high-level overview of essential organic chemistry topics. As you work through the course's simple, engaging and informative video lessons, you'll become knowledgable about alcohols, ketones, aldehydes, amines and carboxylic acids. You'll also take a look at scientific methods and tools that are used to analyze different types of organic compounds.
The course can benefit anyone who needs to learn or review the foundations of organic chemistry, such as students, independent learners or working professionals. Students can use the course to supplement their traditional science textbooks, and science teachers could incorporate the course materials into their lesson plans. The course's online format makes it easy to access these resources any time that's convenient.
|Overview of Alcohols||Recognize the properties of alcohols; name alcohols using IUPAC nomenclature and recognize the common names; identify various synthesis processes for alcohols; determine products for common reactions of alcohols; identify a group of alcohols called phenols and describe their specific properties and reactions.|
|Overview of Aldehydes & Ketones||Recognize properties of aldehydes and ketones; use IUPAC nomenclature to name structures; identify various synthesis processes used to create these molecules; predict the products of common reactions of aldehydes and ketones.|
|The Acyl Group||Describe the structure, reactivity and transfer reactions of the acyl group; differentiate between the acyl group and the carbonyl group.|
|Amines & Other Nitrogen-Containing Molecules||Identify properties of amines and amides; use IUPAC nomenclature to name structures; recognize basicity of amine groups; identify various synthesis processes; predict the products of common reactions of amines and amides; describe a specific group of nitrogen containing structures called pyridines and describe their uses.|
|Overview of Carboxylic Acids||Identify properties of carboxylic acids; assess the structure of the carboxyl group; recognize the acidic nature of the group; discuss esterification and saponification processes; complete carboxylic acid practice problems.|
|Analysis of Organic Compounds||Define infrared, mass and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy; explain how to identify the presence of newly presented function groups or molecules based on the information obtained.|
