An exploration of the physical properties and chemical behavior of important classes of organic compounds, focusing on: alkynes, polyenes; aromatic compounds; alcohols, thiols, and ethers; and aldehydes and ketones and their derivatives. Emphasis on retrosynthesis, spectroscopic structure determination, and reaction mechanism. Laboratory experiments involving the synthesis of simple compounds and the characterization of those compounds using chromatography and infrared (IR), ultraviolet-visible (UV-Vis), and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy. For chemistry majors or those in closely-allied fields such as biochemistry and chemical engineering.
