CHM224 Course Information

Title:Organic Chemistry II
Description: An examination of the fundamental organic functional groups and their characteristic interconversions, with emphasis on biological, medicinal, pharmacological, and industrial examples. Special emphasis is placed on multi-step synthetic pathways. Advanced techniques for separation and spectral characterization (multinuclear NMR, 2-d NMR, FT-IR, and MS) of synthetic products are discussed and employed. The chemical literature is introduced through discussions of print and electronic retrieval methods for synthetic procedures, physical and spectral properties, and safety data. Laboratory investigations involve multi-step syntheses using the microscale approach, with purification and spectral characterization of synthetic intermediates.
