Organic Chemistry 1
Chemistry I Course: Atomic structure and Bonging, and Chemical reactions
And Chemistry II Course: Chemical Kinetics, Thermodynamics and solution Chemistry
Chemistry I course is a general introductory chemistry course, it has important aspects that are needed to understand the organic chemistry in this module. The knowledge of bonding, the difference between ionic and covalent bonding, electronic configuration of different atoms; all these aspects are vital for a good understanding of this module on organic chemistry. Chemistry II course is even a more relevant prerequisite for this module because it had a unit on introductory organic chemistry where at the end of that particular unit you were expected to be able to
1. Classify types of organic compounds based on functional groups.
2. Name different classes of organic compounds using the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) system of nomenclature.
3. Write structural formulas of different isomeric compounds.
4. Relate properties and reactions of organic compounds to functional groups.
