CHEM& 263 - Organic Chemistry III with Lab



6.00 Credits
Continuation of CHEM& 262. Topics covered will include structure, nomenclature, reactions, mechanisms, and properties of aromatic, carbonyl, and amino compounds. Laboratory emphasizes synthesis and instrumental analysis. Lab may also include projects and an introduction to certain biochemical lab methods.
Prerequisite Completion of CHEM& 262 with a minimum grade of 2.0 is required to take this course.
Course-level Learning Objectives (CLOs)
Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:

  1. Explain the nature and reactivity of carbonyl and amino compounds.
  2. Predict the mechanism and outcome of reactions involving carbonyl and amino compounds.
  3. Explain the nature and reactivity of biologically important organic compounds, such as amino acids, carbohydrates, and triacylglycerides.
  4. Carry out multi-step organic synthesis.
  5. Analyze the products resulting from synthesis for purity using analytical methods.
  6. Determine structure of the products resulting from synthesis using spectroscopic methods (NMR, IR and MS).
  7. Develop experimental procedures and validate their feasibility.
  8. Write formal lab reports, reporting results and interpreting analytical data.
