This comprehensive course invites students to explore the fundamentals of organic compounds, atomic structure, bonding, stereochemistry, and much more. Through a series of dynamic virtual simulations, learners will gain hands-on experience with chemical reactions, from the nucleophilic addition and substitution reactions to the principles of electrophilic aromatic substitution and resonance.

The Power of Organic Reactions

You will delve into the structure, nomenclature, and reactions of organic compounds, exploring their immense significance in everything from medicinal chemistry to environmental science. Through cutting-edge virtual simulations, you will experiment safely with hazardous chemicals, synthesize life-saving drugs, and even venture to Saturn's moon Titan to investigate hydrocarbon reactions. Examine the power of organic reactions and their applications in real-world scenarios.

Chemical Reactions & Molecular Insights

Examine the mysteries of chemical bonds through interactive lessons on ionic and covalent bonding, stereochemistry, and functional group tests, from creating biodiesel for a greener future to identifying compounds with the Ceric Ammonium Nitrate test. Meticulously predict reaction outcomes, synthesize novel compounds, and examine the molecular framework of the cosmos with precision.

Learning Objectives

  • Safely conduct experiments with organic and hazardous chemicals, understanding their potential dangers and proper disposal methods.
  • Describe the structure and function of organic compounds, applying nomenclature rules accurately.
