Structure of organic molecules. Structure of carbon atom and covalent bonding. Reaction of organic compounds (types of organic reactions, mechanism, energy and reaction kinetics). Nomenclature of organic compounds-IUPAC and common names. Hydrocarbons: clasification, structure, isomerism, preparation, properties and reactions, usual reaction's mechanisms (radical supstitution, electrofilic adition, electrofilic aromatic supstitution). Hydrocarbons derivatives: halogen derivatives, alcohols and phenols, ethers and epoxides, aldehydes and ketones, carboxylic acids and functional derivatives of carboxylic acids, nitrogen compounds, organosulfur compounds, heterocyclic compounds; structure, preparation, properties and reactions, mechanisms. Polymerisation reactions.

Aim of course

As a basic course, the Organic Chemistry provides the knowledge of the structure of organic compounds, especially as reflected in its characteristics. It educes the fundaments for understandings the nature of materials present in textile production (natural and synthetic), as well as processing of such materials, predominantly based on organic chemical reactions (dyeing, printing, finishing, etc.). During laboratory exercises, students acquire basic skills in observing, interpreting and predicting organic reactions.
