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

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

  1. Plan a synthesis involving organometallic reagents, carbonyl compounds, and aromatic compounds to produce a targeted organic molecule in good yield.
  2. Explain relative reactivities and regioselectivities of organic compounds in nucleophilic acyl substitution (NAS), electrophilic aromatic substitution (EAS) and related reactions.
  3. Determine a reasonable curved arrow mechanism and reaction intermediates for NAS, EAS and related reactions.
  4. Plan a synthesis involving enolate and enamine nucleophiles, reacting with alkyl halides, acylating agents and non-unsaturated carbonyl compounds.
  5. Determine the identity and purity of an organic product of NAS, EAS and related 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.
