Organic Chemistry – Some Basic Principles and Techniques

  • After general introduction to organic chemistry, in this chapter we study tetravalence of carbon : shapes of carbon compounds, some characteristic features of Π bonds. Then we know about the structural representations of organic compounds : complete, condensed and bond-line structural formulas; three-dimensional representation of organic molecules. Then we study about the classification of organic compounds, nomenclature of organic compounds : IUPAC system of nomenclature. Then we study about isomerism, then fundamental concepts in organic reaction mechanism and types of organic reactions and mechanisms. Finally we learn the methods of purification of organic compounds, qualitative and quantitative analysis of organic compounds.
