Applied Chemistry: Organic Chemistry

Applied Chemistry: Organic Chemistry is part three of the Applied Chemistry three-part training series.

All process plants use or manufacture some form of organic or hydrocarbon compound. This course introduces the chemistry of hydrocarbon compounds and their derivatives from methane and other chemicals, to the diverse hydrocarbons in the fuel that powers our cars, to the carbohydrates and sugars in the food that we eat and the synthesized materials in the clothes that we wear.

Course objectives include:

  • Identify the chemical structures of organic compounds
  • Identify important physical properties and phenomena that are used to measure and manufacture organic compounds, like vapor pressure, boiling and melting point, mass conservation, density and partial pressure
  • Recognize some of the processes used for the production and purification of organic compounds.
