Organic chemistry is the study of compounds bearing carbon atoms, including reactions and methods of identification. This course will include methods for describing organic compounds and their features (known as functional groups), reactions of organic compounds such as those containing alkane, alkene, alkyne and alkyl halide functionalities, and spectroscopic means of identifying organic compounds (including IR and NMR).

Study of principle types of biochemical compounds, nature of reactions taking place in plant and animal tissue and functions of enzymes, carbohydrates, lipids and nucleotides in the metabolic control of these processes.
