CHM-121 Principles of Organic & Chemistry W/Lab

This course serves as an introduction to organic and biochemistry. The naming and reactivity patterns of common organic functional groups will be presented. A study of biochemistry will introduce students to the chemical structures and reactions of lipids, carbohydrates, proteins, and nucleic acids and their role in metabolism. The standard length three hour laboratory session will serve to reinforce the concepts discussed during lectures and will provide students with practical experience in organic synthesis reactions and organic compound identification methods. This course does not satisfy the Organic Chemistry requirement of the AA Chemistry Concentration.
