Undergraduate Level
Course Description & Objectives: 

This course covers basic principles of physical organic chemistry such as acids and bases, nucleophilic substitution reactions, addition and elimination reactions and elements of stereochemistry including optical and geometrical isomerism, Enantiomerism,  absolute and relative configurations, chirality,  and geometrical isomerism. 

Learning Outcomes: 

At the end of the course, the student is expected to: 

  • Predict organic reactions.
  • Review Lewis and Bronzed theories with respect to acids and bases
  • Review and write mechanisms of nucleophilic substitution reactions
  • Explain elimination and addition reactions and conditions that affect them
  • Interpret stereochemistry of organic compounds and implications on organic reactions.
