Organic Chemistry II


Advanced concepts in organic chemistry, including the structure and reactions of carboxylic acids and derivatives, aromatic compounds, and amines; an introduction to IR, NMR, and GC-MS spectroscopy; an introduction to the chemistry of heterocycles, carbohydrates, and amino acids; nomenclature of organic compounds; and reaction mechanisms. Laboratory instruction includes experimental techniques of modern organic chemistry, emphasizing reactions involving alcohols, ketones, carboxylic acids, aromatic compounds, and their derivatives. Multistep syntheses are also introduced. (Formerly CHM204) 4 Credits (3 Lecture - 3 Lab) Prerequisite(s): CHM210 and CHM211.
