CEM241

Sarin is an organic molecule, it is also the most potent nerve agent ever generated. It was used by terrorist in an attack on the Tokyo subway system.

Organic Chemistry I (CEM241)

This page is a placeholder for the FS17 CEM241 class at Jackson College.  Over the course of the coming months I will be adding materials to the page in prep for the course.

Organic Chemistry is the chemistry of carbon molecules.  Carbon has the unique ability to readily bond with not just itself, but up to four other elements (the most of the normal Main Group elements).  Organic chemistry is the basis of much of our world, including our own biology.  In Organic Chemistry I we will learn about the basics of bonding in organic molecules, the relationship of structure and function, and the chemistry of the simpler organic groups.  This is a prerequisite for Organic Chemistry II which will be taught winter term.
