  Subject Description Form Subject Code ABCT2742 Subject Title Organic Chemistry I Credit Value 3 Level 2 Pre-requisite General Chemistry II Objectives The aim of this subject is to enable students to understand organic chemistry through a study of the basic reaction types, the basic principles and the uses of common spectroscopic techniques available for functional group identification. Illustration will be emphasized on reactions and compounds with structural interest or industrial importance. Intended Learning Outcomes Upon completion of the subject, students will be able to: a. recognize simple alkanes, alkenes, alkynes and alkyl halides and know the hybridization of each functional group;  b. be able to name in a systematic manner (IUPAC) simple organic compounds such as alkanes, alkenes, alkynes and alkyl halides; c. be able to recognize and distinguish the three major types of isomers (constitutional, configurational and conformational); d. understand the following simple mechanisms: electrophilic addition, free radical halogenation, S  N 2, S  N 1, E1, E2 and electrocyclic reactions such as the carbene and Diels-Alder reaction; e. predict reactivity of various basic reactions in different conditions, know about 30 organic reactions and be able to use them in organic synthesis; f. recognize the basic principles of mass spectrometry, UV, IR and  proton NMR spectroscopies and select suitable method for functional group identification. Subject Synopsis/ Indicative Syllabus We will cover chapters 1-14 of McMurry textbook. Students should read each chapter before it is covered in class. 1. Structure and Bonding 2. Polar Covalent Bonds; Acids and Bases 3. Organic Compounds: Alkanes and Their Stereochemistry 4. Organic Compounds: Cycloalkanes and Their Stereochemistry 5. An Overview of Organic Reactions 6. Alkenes: Structure and Reactivity 7. Alkenes: Reactions and Synthesis 8. Alkynes: An Introduction to Organic Synthesis 9. Stereochemistry 10. Organohalides  11. Reactions of Alkyl Halides: Nucleophilic Substitutions and Eliminations 12. Structure Determination: Mass Spectrometry and Infrared Spectroscopy 13. Structure Determination: Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy 14. Conjugated Compounds and Ultraviolet Spectroscopy Teaching/Learning Methodology The basic reaction mechanism and basic principles of spectroscopic methods will be delivered by lectures. Students are encouraged to ask questions for clarifying the concepts and guided by solving problems in the tutorial sessions. Assessment Methods in Alignment with Intended Learning Outcomes Specific assessment methods/tasks % weighting Intended subject learning outcomes to  be assessed (Please tick as appropriate) a b c d e f 1.examination 70 √   √   √   √   √   √  2. continuous assessment 30 √   √   √   √   √   √  Total 100 % Explanation of the appropriateness of the assessment methods in assessing the intended learning outcomes: Assignments, quizzes and examinations are used to assess student’s learning in key concepts in organic structure determination and structure reactivity relationship. In-class discussion and homework assignments (e.g. end-of-chapter exercises and tutorial assignments) would encourage student to develop conceptual models for understanding structural transformations of organic molecules. Through these exercises, students can practice their conceptual skills for solving problems relating to organic reactions. Student Study Effort Expected Class contact:    Lectures 26 Hrs.    Tutorials 13 Hrs. Other student study effort:    Self-study 56 Hrs.    Homework / assignments 16 Hrs. Total student study effort 111 Hrs.  Reading List and References Textbook: Bruice, P. Organic Chemistry, 7 th  ed. Pearson , 2012 All students are encouraged to buy their own copy of the textbook, which will be used as texts for the duration of level 2 and level 3 studies in organic chemistry courses. .
