CHEM 212B Organic Chemistry (6)
Credit, Degree Applicable
The second semester of a one-year course in organic chemistry for students who major in chemistry, biochemistry, and other chemistry intensive sciences.
C-ID CHEM 160S (CHEM 212A + CHEM 212B)
After successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
- Outcome 1: Name and draw the structures of organic compounds studied in the second semester of the course.
- Outcome 2: Use structure, chemical bonding, and intermolecular attractions and repulsions to predict polarity, dipole moments, boiling point trends, solubility, and reactivity of different functional groups.
- Outcome 3: Predict the product of organic reactions of conjugated alkenes, aromatics, carbonyl compounds, amines, carbohydrates, lipids, and amino acids.
- Outcome 4: Write detailed mechanisms for pericyclic reactions, aromatic substitution chemistry, additions and elimination reactions of carbonyl compounds, and condensation reactions.
- Outcome 5: Apply modern concepts of organic chemistry to solve mechanism and multiple step synthesis problems.
- Outcome 6: Identify the structure of organic compounds on the basis of reactions and spectroscopic analysis.
- Outcome 7: Use modern organic chemistry laboratory techniques and laboratory instrumentation in the synthesis, isolation, and identification of organic compounds.
