Course Catalog

Organic Chemistry: Intermediate

This course is intended for, but not limited to, students who are completing majors outside of chemistry (e.g. biology, environmental science or natural science). Selected topics include redox chemistry, carbonyl chemistry, aromatics, cycloadditions and the applications of instrumental methods (NMR, IR and GC-MS). In addition, select topics in bio-organic chemistry are covered to illustrate the application of mechanistic organic chemistry to the solution of problems of biochemical or medicinal interest. The lab component of the course serves to reinforce topics discussed during lectures. Prerequisite: CHEM 220.
