  4. CHM 004 : ORGANIC CHEMISTRY

At the end of the series of courses, candidates should be able to:

  1. determine scientific quantities and units;
  2. apply the terms relative atomic, isotopic, molecular and formula masses based on C scale in chemistry.
  3. define the term moles in terms of Avogadro constant;
  4. determine the empirical and molecular formulae, using combustion data;
  5. discuss the development of the modern atomic structure;
  6. state the electronic configuration of atoms and ions given the proton number;
  7. explain qualitatively the variation in atomic radius and ionic radius;
  8. describe chemical bonding(ionic, covalent, coordinate metallic, etc. )
  9.  explain the shapes of, and bond angles in molecules using the valence shell electron pair repulsion theory.
  10. state the assumptions of the Kinetic theory for ideal gases;
  11. state an derive equation for Raoult’s law
  12. use of colligative properties of solution to obtain experimentally determined molar masses;
  13. apply Hess’s Law to construct simple energy cycles and carry out calculations involving such cycles;
  14. define the terms, standard electrode potential, and standard cell potential;
  15. construct and use rate equations to deduce order of reactions;
  16. define acids and bases in terms of Arrhenius, Bronsted-Lowry and Lewis concept; and

  22. explain what a transition elements is in terms of d-block elements;
  23. describe the tendency of transition metals to form variable oxidation states and write their electronic configuration;
  24. interpret and use nomenclature and general formulae of alkanes, alkenes, alkynes, arenes, aldehydes, ketones, alcohols, alkyl halides and carboxylic acids and their derivatives;
  25. describe the synthetic routes to simple organic compounds and the reaction of the above classes of compounds;
  26. describe the formation of polymer by addition and condensation polymerization;
  27. identify the monomer present in a given section of a polymer molecule;
  28. relate chemical principles to industrial processes; and
  29. explain the carious types of isomerism exhibited by organic compounds.
