CHEM& 263 - Organic Chemistry with Lab III Credits: 6
A continuation of CHEM& 262 . Covers the chemistry of selected classes of biomolecules.
Prerequisite: CHEM& 262 and eligible for ENGL& 101 .
Satisfies Requirement: Natural Science or Lab Science
Students who successfully complete this class will be able to:
- Plan a synthesis involving organometallic reagents, carbonyl compounds, and aromatic compounds to produce a targeted organic molecule in good yield.
- Explain relative reactivities and regioselectivities of organic compounds in nucleophilic acyl substitution (NAS), electrophilic aromatic substitution (EAS) and related reactions.
- Determine a reasonable curved arrow mechanism and reaction intermediates for NAS, EAS and related reactions.
- Plan a synthesis involving enolate and enamine nucleophiles, reacting with alkyl halides, acylating agents and non-unsaturated carbonyl compounds.
- Determine the identity and purity of an organic product of NAS, EAS and related reactions using spectroscopy and other common organic laboratory techniques.
- Use appropriate symbolic reasoning or quantitative methods to evaluate problems, make decisions and formulate solutions.
- Effectively use laboratory tools and/or equipment to collect data, analyze it and draw reasonable scientific conclusions.
- 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.
