SLE214 encompasses the typical reactions of the common functional groups (alkenes, alkynes, benzene, alkyl halides, alcohols, ethers, amines, carboxylic acids and carboxylate derivatives) as well as theoretical aspects of organic chemistry (including structure, bonding, resonance, stereochemistry and the mechanisms that underpin the conversions).
Three in-class tests (20% each) 60%, scientific report 10%, series of practical reports 30%. To be eligible to obtain a pass in this unit, students must achieve at least 50% in the practical component.
