Description: Continuation of the integrated treatment of organic chemistry including electronic and orbital theory with applications to carbon bonding, stereo chemistry, resonance theory, and reaction mechanisms of both aliphatic and aromatic compounds. Strong emphasis on organic nomenclature, reactions, preparations, and synthesis of organic compounds. Laboratory: Techniques and theories involved in organic reactions and preparations, qualitative organic analysis, and instrumental methods.
SLOs: Application of Organic Theory to the Lab (Synthesis) — Successful students will be able to successfully plan the synthesis, purification, and characterization of
many common aliphatic and aromatic compounds from a theoretical perspective and then carry out the actual techniques in the laboratory.
