CHEM& 262 - Organic Chemistry II with Lab

6.0 Credits
Continuation of CHEM& 261. Topics covered will include structure, nomenclature, reactions, mechanisms, and properties of organic molecules. Also includes IR, NMR, and mass spectrometry analysis. Laboratory includes preparation of organic compounds and instrumental analysis.  
Prerequisite CHEM& 261 with a minimum grade of 2.0.
Course-level Learning Objectives (CLOs)
Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:

  1. Name alkenes, alkynes, alcohols, ethers, and epoxides using the IUPAC naming system.
  2. Explain spectroscopic techniques including NMR, IR, and mass spectroscopy and interpret spectra obtained from these techniques.
  3. Predict reaction outcomes and mechanisms for elimination, oxidation, and reduction reactions.
  4. Describe the properties of alcohols, ethers, and epoxides and predict reaction outcomes and mechanisms involving these compounds.
  5. Describe the properties of alkenes and alkynes and predict reaction outcomes and mechanisms involving these compounds.
  6. Perform basic organic laboratory reactions and techniques using standard glassware.
  7. Analyze the structure of organic compounds using spectroscopic methods including NMR, IR, and mass spectrometry.
  8. Incorporate and carry out experimental modifications to laboratory procedures.
  9. Write formal lab reports, reporting results and interpreting analytical data.
