Main themes
The formation is oriented towards problems solving. Formal lessons are given and activities in small groups are organized where organic chemistry problems are worked out. The topics covered are molecular structures, stereochemistry, properties of the chemical bond and physico-chemical characteristics as well as reactivity of the main functional groups, using the basic concepts of thermodynamics and kinetics.
Reference book : Organic Chemistry : Structure and Function, K. Peter, C. Vollhardt, Neil E. Schore, W.H. Freeman and co., New York.
Aims

At the end of this learning unit, the student is able to :

1 The aim of the course is to give a basic knowledge of organic chemistry to student oriented towards life sciences. With these lessons, the students should acquire a sound idea of what carbon-derived molecules are and how they behave. They should be able to use in a proper fashion the basic notions of molecular structure, reactivity, thermodynamics and kinetics, applied to organic chemistry. At the end of half an academic year, typical problems of a first year college chemistry course, related to structure and reactivity of organic molecules, have to be mastered.
 
Content
This course corresponds to a typical first year organic chemistry course of an anglo-saxon college.
