Learning Outcomes
The study of the basic principles of modern Organic Chemistry and the understanding of their importance/significance on the structure and reactivity of molecules as well as their interaction. Therefore the course covers the general principles of Organic Chemistry coupled with the spectroscopic methods and the chemistry of alkanes, alkenes, alkynes, alkyl halides and aromatic compounds. In the Laboratory the tutoring covers experiments of principal laboratory techniques and simple organic reactions.
General Competences
  • Apply knowledge in practice
  • Retrieve, analyse and synthesise data and information, with the use of necessary technologies
  • Adapt to new situations
  • Work autonomously
  • Work in an interdisciplinary team
  • Generate new research ideas
  • Respect natural environment
  • Advance free, creative and causative thinking
Course Content (Syllabus)
Study and investigation of the basic principles of Organic Chemistry including spectroscopic methods. Study of some classes of organic compounds. The aforementioned subjects can be classified in the following chapters: Structure and bonding Bonding and molecular properties. The nature of organic compounds: alkanes and cycloalkanes Stereochemistry of alkanes and cycloalkanes Overview of organic reactions (review) Alkenes: structure and reactivity Alkenes: reactivity and synthesis Alkynes Stereochemistry Alkyl halides. Reactions: nucleophillic substitutions and eliminations Structure elucidation: mass spectrometry and infrared spectroscopy Structure elucidation: nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy Conjugated dienes and ultraviolet spectroscopy Benzene and aromaticity Chemistry of benzene: aromatic electrophillic substitution Organic reactions: a brief review
Organic Chemistry, structure, bonding, molecular properties, alkanes, alkenes, alkynes, stereochemistry, alkyl halides, Spectroscopy IR, UV, NMR, MS, benzene, aromaticity, substitution-elimination reactions

Student Assessment
Written examination at the end of the semester covering the knowledge of the students and their ability of critically evaluating different problems of Organic Chemistry. All examined subjects are graded equally. The duration of the examinations is 3 hours. Additional, tests at the end of the Laboratory session (prerequisites for the completion of the lab and the acquisition of the corresponding mark/seal/stamp).
Student Assessment methods
  • Written Exam with Extended Answer Questions (Summative)
  • Written Exam with Problem Solving (Summative)
  • Labortatory Assignment (Summative)
