Chemistry 3: Organic Reactions and Mechanisms (CHE4213.01)

Janet Foley

Chemistry 3 focuses on how reactions happen: what the steps are, how we discover them, and how we use this to look at some practical systems: the synthesis of a drug, the kinetics of substitution. Emphasis will be on mastering  general principles of chemistry such as  nucleophiles and electrophiles, molecular orbital concepts, thermodynamics and kinetics in order to  guide an understanding of specific reactions.The latest research will be used to relate the chemical concepts to current applications.  Students will read, present and discuss research articles to demonstrate the ability to apply the chemical ideas to new situations.
