CEE 5317 - Environmental Organic Chemistry


Credits: 3

Examines the fundamental processes that govern the transformation of organic chemicals in natural and engineering systems. Includes an overview of organic chemistry, with a focus on the basic properties of organic compounds, such as nomenclature and structures. Covers the physical transformations of organic compounds to provide an understanding of processes (e.g., sorption and volatilization) that control the distribution of organic chemicals between different phases such as air, water, and soil. Also, organic chemical reactions in the environment, with an emphasis on environmentally mediated reactions (e.g., hydrolysis and photolysis) that control the breakdown of organic chemicals.
