This is the first semester of a two-semester sequence. This organic chemistry course is for science majors primarily in chemistry, chemical engineering, biochemistry, biology, environmental toxicology, pre-medical, pre-dental, and pre-veterinary. The course will emphasize the mechanisms and reactions of the hydrocarbons, alcohols and ether compounds, as well as, the use of spectroscopy as it relates to the functional groups. This is an introduction to laboratory techniques of organic chemistry. Techniques include: separating, purification, synthesis, and isolation of organic compounds. CHM 255-256 is equivalent to CHE 128ABC-CHE 129ABC at UC Davis, and Chem 112A-112B at UC Berkeley. Transfer students should complete this sequence prior to their junior year.
