The mechanistic and synthetic organic chemistry relating to nucleophilic substitution, elimination, additions to carbon-carbon multiple bonds, aromatic substitution, addition and substitution at carbonyls, substitution alpha to carbonyls, rearrangements, and polymerizations. The organic chemistry of natural compounds (e.g. peptides, carbohydrates, etc.) is introduced. Three periods of lecture and a four-hour laboratory session each week.
