This course focuses on organic chemistry, the chemistry of carbon.
Carbon based compounds; the organic compounds are the building blocks of life on earth. Biological molecules such as nucleic acids, polymers in plastic, synthetically made compounds such as pharmaceutical drugs, paints and oils in our day-to-day life are all organic compounds.
This course highlights the fundamentals of organic chemistry. Topics such as structure, physical properties, and chemical reactivity of various organic compounds will be discussed in detail. Study of various functional groups such as carboxylic acid derivatives, aldehydes, ketones, etc. will be conducted in detail.
In short, welcome to a course explaining the molecular basis of chemistry around you.
