CHEM& 263 - Organic Chemistry III with Lab



6.0 Credits
Continuation of CHEM& 262. Topics covered will include properties, reactions, and mechanisms of organic compounds. Laboratory emphasizes synthesis and instrumental analysis. Lab may also include projects and an introduction to certain biochemical lab methods.
Prerequisite CHEM& 262 with a minimum grade of 2.0 or equivalent.
Course-level Learning Objectives (CLOs)
Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:

  1. Name aromatic and carbonyl compounds using the IUPAC naming system.
  2. Describe aromaticity and antiaromaticity in relation to organic compounds.
  3. Predict the reaction outcomes and mechanisms for electrophilic aromatic substitution reactions.
  4. Predict the reaction outcomes and mechanisms for reactions involving carbonyl and amino compounds.
  5. Explain the nature and reactivity of biologically important organic compounds, such as amino acids, carbohydrates, and triacylglycerides.
  6. Carry out multi-step organic synthesis.
  7. Analyze the products resulting from synthesis for purity using analytical methods.
  8. Determine the structure of products resulting from synthesis using spectroscopic methods (NMR, IR, and mass spectrometry).
  9. Develop experimental procedures and validate their feasibility.
  10. Write formal lab reports, reporting results, and interpreting analytical data.
