CHMY 223NL - Organic Chemistry II

Credit(s): 5

Prerequisite(s): a grade of “C” or better in CHMY 221 .
This is the second semester of a one-year sequence with emphasis on fundamental concepts of structure, nomenclature, properties and reaction mechanisms of organic compounds and an introduction to biochemical molecules. Laboratory included. (Spring Semester)

Course Learning Outcomes: Upon completion of the course, students will be able to
  • Recognize by formula and name organic compounds belonging to the major functional groups.
  • Predict physical and chemical properties of the compounds belonging to the major organic functional groups. Utilize the fundamental spectroscopy tools in order to determine the structures of unknown organic compounds. Use modern computational analysis software to solve organic chemistry related problems.
  • Have a solid concept of organic reactivity, including knowledge of thermodynamics, kinetics, and reaction profiles.
  • Demonstrate knowledge of key reaction mechanisms.
  • Apply scientific concepts and methods of inquiry.
