General and Inorganic Chemistry

Course Objectives

The students will:

  • recognize main functional groups of organic compounds and predict their chemical properties, taking into account the type of chemical bond connectivity, hybridization state, and stereochemistry;
  • identify reaction mechanisms for chemical processes with formation of intermediate free radicals, nucleophilic, and electrophilic agents; predict major product in reactions with participation of organic compounds;
  • define the reagent nature as free radical, nucleophilic, or electrophilic, and use this knowledge to perform a synthesis of organic compounds belonging to main classes;
  • demonstrate laboratory skills, including safety, handling and disposal of organic compounds; experimental procedures such as isolation, purification and structure identification of reaction products obtained; use of laboratory equipment; and writing experimental reports according to the style adopted for scientific publications.

Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of this module the students will be able to

  • develop an optimum procedure for obtaining specified organic compounds from commercially available initial substances;
  • make identification of organic compounds on the base of their nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), infra-red (IR), and mass spectra;
  • predict direction of a chemical processes with a participation of organic compounds regarding possible reaction mechanisms;
  • suggest methods of isolation and identification of synthesized organic compounds belonging to different classes.
