CHEM& 262 - Organic Chemistry with Lab II

Credits: 6
Continuation of CHEM& 261 .

Prerequisite: CHEM& 261  and eligible for ENGL& 101 .

Satisfies Requirement: Natural Science or Lab Science

Course Outcomes:
Students who successfully complete this class will be able to:

  1. Plan a synthesis involving pericyclic reactions, radical-mediated reactions, nucleophilic substitution, elimination, and alcohol oxidation reactions to produce a targeted organic molecule in good yield.
  2. Determine a reasonable curved arrow mechanism and reaction intermediates of pericyclic reactions, radical-mediated reactions, nucleophilic substitution and elimination reactions.
  3. Predict the monomers, reaction conditions and products of chain-growth and step-growth polymerization reactions.
  4. Relate the polymerization reaction conditions to the physical properties of a polymer.
  5. Explain the effects of nucleophilicity, basicity, leaving group propensity, steric hindrance, solvent, and temperature on the reaction rates of nucleophilic substitution and elimination reactions.
  6. Determine the structure of an unknown organic compound, using infrared spectroscopy, mass spectroscopy, 1H and 13C nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy.
  7. Verify identity and purity of an organic product of pericyclic reactions, radical-mediated reactions, nucleophilic substitution and elimination reactions using spectroscopy and other common organic laboratory techniques.

Program Outcomes
  1. Use appropriate symbolic reasoning or quantitative methods to evaluate problems, make decisions and formulate solutions.
  2. Effectively use laboratory tools and/or equipment to collect data, analyze it and draw reasonable scientific conclusions.


College-wide Outcomes
  • Quantitative and Symbolic Reasoning - Quantitative Reasoning encompasses abilities necessary for a student to become literate in today’s technological world. Quantitative reasoning begins with basic skills and extends to problem solving.
