CHEM& 262 - Organic Chemistry with Lab II


6 credits

Prerequisites
A grade of “C” or better in CHEM& 261  or instructor permission.

This course is a continuation of CHEM& 261 . Structure, nomenclature, reactions and synthesis of aldehydes, ketones and aromatic compounds. Grignard synthesis of alcohols. Free radical reactions.

Theory Hours
4 theory hours.

Guided Practice Hours
4 guided practice hours.

AA Specified Elective
Satisfies specified elective requirement for the AA degree.

Course Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:

  • Describe the formation and predict the reactivity of alkenes, alkynes, free radicals, dienes, aromatic compounds, and organometallic compounds
  • Describe the mechanism of the formation and reactions of alkenes, alkynes, free radicals, dienes, aromatic compounds, and organometallic compounds
  • Outline plausible multi-step synthesis of target organic molecules that involve alkenes, alkynes, free radicals, dienes, aromatic compounds, and organometallic compounds
  • Evaluate the relative physical properties of alkenes, alkynes, free radicals, dienes, aromatic compounds, and organometallic compounds
  • Effectively use Instrumental Analysis (IR Spectroscopy, GC) for the elucidation of molecular structure
  • Demonstrate fundamental skills used by the organic chemist to synthesize and characterize molecules in the laboratory
  • Explain reasons for the effectiveness or ineffectiveness of experiments in the organic chemistry laboratory
