Define and explain the basic concepts in organic chemistry such as electronegativity, orbital hybridization, nomenclature, resonance and isomerism, as well as organic reactions mechanisms (C4, CTPS) 2. to conduct experiments that demonstrate the characteristic reactions of important functional groups of organic compounds (P4) 3. interact and work together as a group, as well as carry out a given assignment within the stipulated time (A3)

SYNOPSIS

:

This course covers topics related to structure, bonding, nomenclature, properties, reactions, synthesis and the importance of the various classes of organic compounds, as well as optical isomerism.
