Learning Outcomes: 1. Define Organic chemistry in terms of the role of carbon in organic chemistry.
2. Identify and classify the major functional groups. These include alkanes, alkenes,
aromatics, alkynes, aldehydes, ketones, carboxylic acids, esters, amides, amines,
alcohols, and alkyl halides.
3. Predict reactivity of compounds based on their size and functional group.
4. Define and recognize the different types of isomerism, including geometric, stereo,
5. Explain and describe the meaning of primary, secondary, and tertiary substituents.
