High School Diploma or equivalent, and General Chemistry 1 & 2 or equivalents.

Organic Chemistry 1 (CHEM 201) - Course Description

Organic Chemistry 1 is a 4-unit, intensive, immersion-learning course that requires four weekends to complete. Classes are held on Saturdays and Sundays from 8:30am to 6:30pm, which includes 2 face-to-face lecture sessions and 2 face-to-face laboratory sessions.

Organic Chemistry 1 (CHEM 201) begins with a review of some of the important concepts established in inorganic chemistry. The chemistry of carbon compounds will be distinguished from inorganic chemistry. The various classes of aliphatic and aromatic compounds will be examined. The diversity of functional groups will be explored with regard to reactivity and mechanism. Nucleophilic and electrophilic reaction mechanisms will be stressed. Stereochemistry will emphasize the three dimensional aspect that the carbon backbone confers upon macromolecules. Concepts of hydrophobicity and hydrophilicity will be examined in order to understand extraction, partitioning between phases, absorption and chromatography. Biochemical and physiological analogies will be evident.


Additional Unit: If a student needs to earn 5 semester units for
CHEM 201 instead of 4 to meet pre-requisite requirements of a given academic program he or she seek to gain admission into, he or she may sign up for an ISP Capstone taken concurrently with this Course. The ISP Capstone is a 1-Unit, instructor-supervised, independent, 45hr research project, which fosters opportunity for empirically based study that enhances, deepens, and further integrates knowledge of an ISP Courses key concept.

Nursing students should learn more about the Chemistry for Allied Health Professions class also offered by ISP. The Chemistry for Allied Health Professions introduces pre-nursing students to the fundamental concepts of organic chemistry and biochemistry, and meets the requirement for diverse nursing degree programs.
