CH 242 - Organic Chemistry 2

4 Credit(s)

Organic chemistry lecture for science and health science majors, with a green chemistry emphasis. Topics include alcohols, ethers, aromatics, conjugated systems, aldehydes, and ketones. It is recommended to take the accompanying lab, CH 248 (2 credits), at the same time as the lecture.

Prerequisite: CH 241  
Learning Outcomes
Students who successfully complete this course will be able to:

1. Explain the theory of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) as it applies to the evaluation of organic compounds and be able to interpret NMR spectra

2. Apply the principles of acid- base chemistry to organic reactions

3. Apply molecular orbital theory to explain the chemical character of molecules containing conjugated and aromatic pi bonding

4. Analyze and appropriately apply major bonding theories and models to molecular structures and to predict/explain reactions

5. For the common classes (such as alcohols, ethers, aldehydes, ketones, aromatics, carboxylic acids and their derivatives) or organic molecules

a. Describe their characteristic structures

b. Relate molecular structure to physical properties

c. Correlate molecular structure with names

d. Describe characteristic reaction mechanisms

e. State specific reactions

6. Apply knowledge of reaction mechanisms to predict products

7. Apply knowledge of specific reactions to synthesis problems

8. Use the Principles of Green Chemistry to evaluate chemical reactions
