CHEM& 263 - Organic Chemistry with Lab III


3 credits

Prerequisites
A grade of “C” or better in CHEM& 262 .

This course is a continuation of CHEM& 262  for students desiring three quarters of organic chemistry. Topics include FMO theory, nonclassical carbocations, heterocycles, rearrangements, amino acids, lipids, carbohydrates, proteins and nucleic acids.

Theory Hours
3 theory 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 alcohols, epoxides, aldehydes, ketones, carboxylic acids & their derivatives, enols & enolates, and amines
  • Describe the mechanism of the formation and reactions of alcohols, epoxides, aldehydes, ketones, carboxylic acids & their derivatives, enols & enolates, and amines
  • Outline plausible multi-step synthesis of target organic molecules that involve of alcohols, epoxides, aldehydes, ketones, carboxylic acids & their derivatives, enols & enolates, and amines
  • Evaluate the relative physical properties of alcohols, epoxides, aldehydes, ketones, carboxylic acids & their derivatives, enols & enolates, and amines
  • Describe the formation and predict the reactivity of common biomolecules: carbohydrates, amino acids, and proteins
