LA Code: 

(continued from Term 2.1)

We will focus on organic chemistry - ­no,not the study of organic foods, but the study of carbon-containing molecules. We will try for ourselves the many chemical reactions that can be done with these organic compounds to make useful things. We'll have lots of opportunities to look at real-world problems linked to organic chemistry (such as CFCs and their connection with the hole in the ozone layer) and how organic chemistry can be used to invent solutions to problems ranging from environmental to health.

This term will be “alkynes” of fun, so hopefully no one will be “diene” of boredom.

This will prepare you for an external assessment opportunity (AS91165) worth 4 credits.
