Graduate Capabilities

Intended Learning Outcomes

01. Identify and describe key stereochemistry elements in organic compounds, and the changes to stereochemistry that occur during chemical reactions.
02. Use reaction mechanisms to describe the important reactions of organic compounds.
03. Determine experimental rate laws, infer reaction mechanisms, and assess how chemical reaction rates may be controlled.
04. Demonstrate practical skills needed to conduct chemical synthesis, chemical analysis and be able to interpret and report the results of spectroscopic measurements.
