Organic Chemistry is the study of covalently bonded molecules with a carbon backbone. Organic molecules are the vast majority of compounds making up living systems. This includes DNA, RNA, carbohydrates, lipids, proteins drugs and poisons. This course introduces you to the structure and reactivity of organic molecules in sufficient detail to better understand biochemistry as well as predict reactivity and synthetic pathways. The practical component demonstrates hands on synthesis, purification and identification of organic compounds.
