Synopsis:

Structure of organic compounds, properties of covalent bond, reactions on covalent bonds. Nomenclature of organic compounds (main chain, group, locants, prefixes and suffixes) . Spatial structures of organic compounds, double bond isomers, chirality, enantiomers and diastereomeric compounds. Configuration and conformation, relationships. Lewis structures, formal charges, acidity, hard and soft acids and bases. Resonance, aromaticity, classification of substituents, reactivity of polycyclic arenes. Intermediates: carbocations, carbanions, carbenes, radicals - electronic structure.
