Basic principles of organic chemistry with emphasis on structural theory stereochemistry reaction mechanisms spectroscopy and organic synthesis.

Course Outcomes
1. To provide a comprehensive study of basic organic chemistry with emphasis on modern aspects of structural theory, reaction mechanism, synthesis, stereochemistry and spectral analysis 2. To provide student with a practical background in the theory and technique of organic synthesis and analysis 3. To develop incentive for individual creative action in the laboratory by encouraging the student to use his own judgement in carrying out the details of his projects 4. To give student a solid foundation required for further study in organic chemistry or biochemistry 5. To develop an appreciation, awareness and a concern for the vital role which organic chemistry plays in today’s society and to show the importance of organic chemistry in fields involving agriculture, drugs, environmental control, household products, life processes, polymerization etc.
