Organic Chemistry 1

College Science Prerequisites, Course Description and Textbooks

Organic Chemistry 1 (CHEM201) - Prerequisites

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

Organic Chemistry 1 (CHEM201) - Course Description

Organic Chemistry 1 requires four weekends to complete. The accelerated organic chemistry classes are held on Saturdays and Sundays from 8:30am to 6:30pm.
(4 Semester Units, includes lab*)

The weekend Organic Chemistry 1 (CHEM201) course will begin 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.


*If the college or university to which the student intends to transfer Integrated Science Program (ISP) courses requires 5 instead of 4 semester units per portion of a course (either 1 or 2), we offer 1 semester unit independent study courses for each formal course which provide empirically-based studies that enhance, deepen, and further integrate knowledge of the subject by developing different problem-solving skills and conceptual organization than those fostered in formal classroom and laboratory learning.

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