    Prerequisite: A-level chemistry (or equivalent)
    This module is designed to introduce first year students to the fundamental principles underpinning organic chemistry. A substantial introduction, covering topics such as stucture, bonding, stereochemistry, acidity and curved arrow formalism will provide students with basic tools required to explain and predict the structure and reactivity of organic molecules. Focus is then given to reactivity, using a mechanistic approach to discuss topics such as nucleophillic substitution, elimination reactions, electrophillic addition, aromatic chemistry and carbonyl chemistry.
