This course focuses on organic chemistry, the chemistry of carbon and carbon compounds. Stemming from the Introductory Organic Chemistry I, this course builds important concepts in chemistry of organic compounds and their reactions. This course will cover important functional groups such as carboxylic acid and derivatives, carbonyl compounds, enols and enolates etc. Other important topics include rearrangement reactions, conjugate additions and stereochemistry of addition reactions. In short, welcome to a course explaining the molecular basis of chemistry around you.INTENDED AUDIENCE : Second and third year B.Sc. students; first year M.Sc. studentsPREREQUISITES : Introductory Organic Chemistry I is a prerequisite.
