CHEMISTRY 1B

CHE1C1B

2021

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject, students will be introduced to chemical hazards and the safe handling of inorganic and organic chemicals. The topics introduced are the chemistry of carbon compounds: alkanes, alkenes, alkynes, aromatic compounds, halides, phenols, ethers, nitro compounds, amines, aldehydes, ketones and carboxylic acids. The stereochemistry and its implications are introduced in some detail. Some reaction mechanisms of organic compounds will be introduced in addition to the systematic chemical identification of organic molecules. In this subject, the practical component consists of seven experiments of three hours each. These experiments deal with preparation of Aspirin, Thin Layer Chromatography (TLC) analysis of analgesics drugs, molecular models and stereochemistry, relative rates of electrophilic aromatic substitution, the solubility and acid-base properties of organic compounds and functional group tests.

Graduate Capabilities

Intended Learning Outcomes

01. Identify the name of an organic molecule by observing its structure and draw the structure of an organic molecule from an appropriate common or systematic (IUPAC name.
02. Predict the outcome of a reaction between any given set of organic molecules and synthetic reagents using basic patterns of reactivity or identify appropriate starting materials to synthesise a simple organic molecule, which contains one of the common functional groups.
03. Predict the overall three-dimensional structure of relatively simple organic molecules that contain the common functional groups by applying the basic principles of bonding, hybridization and conformation analysis.
04. Safely handle laboratory glassware, equipment, and chemical reagents using general guidelines and basic knowledge about the common hazards associated with operations performed in an organic chemistry laboratory.
05. Interpret laboratory results and data correctly within inherent limitations regarding precision and report findings in a scientific notebook using acceptable appropriate notational and descriptive content.
06. Apply critical thinking to solve problems involving quantitative responses.
