Objectives and Content

The objective of the course is to give an overview of smaller organic compounds grouped after their most important functional groups, including their preparation and reactions. The course will also cover organic nomenclature, reaction mechanisms and central concepts in organic chemistry like various types of isomerism. Important aspects of organic chemistry in the society will be incorporated as examples from everyday life, pharmacy, nature and industry.

Learning Outcomes

After completing the course KJEM130 the student will have the following:

Knowledge

The student knows about

¿ the main groups of smaller organic compounds including their preparation and most important chemical reactions,

¿ basic organic nomenclature,

¿ main reaction mechanisms in organic chemistry, and

¿ concepts of isomerism.

Skills

The student is able to

¿ reason a name from the formula of an organic compound and vice versa,

¿ prepare theoretically the main groups of smaller organic compounds,

¿ connect the structure of the main groups of smaller organic compounds to their properties in organic reactions,

¿ use knowledge about specific reaction mechanism to judge how the structure of the reagents and the solvent influence the products formed in organic chemical reactions, and

¿ use knowledge about isomerism to judge how the structure of the reagents influence the products formed in organic chemical reactions.

Competences

The student is able to

¿ communicate both in written and oral forms the central concepts of

organic chemistry by using the typical `tools of organic chemistry¿

(drawing of structures of organic compounds (including isomeric details),

organic reactions and reaction mechanisms) - also applicable in the fields

of pharmacy (medicine), food, environment and industry.
