CHEM 202 - Organic Chemistry 2

Number of Credits: 5
Organic Chemistry 2 is the second semester course in college level organic chemistry. This course fulfills the requirements for students who are chemistry majors, life science majors or pursuing a major that requires a two semester sequence of college level organic chemistry. Topics covered in the course include nomenclature, structural determination and mechanisms of reactions of functional groups including biomolecules. (Spring Term Only) Three hours lecture. Four hours laboratory. Five Credits. Five billable hours.

Pre-requisite(s): CHEM 201  with a minimum grade of C or better.
Course Objectives: Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
  1. Recognize and name organic compounds including functional groups such as alcohols, phenols, aldehydes, ketones, carboxylic acids, amines, carbohydrates, amino acids and lipids. (PG1)
  2. Explain the reactions between aromatic compounds and select functional groups. (PG1, PG2)
  3. Describe the relationship between structures and reactions for select functional groups using different bonding models discussed in general chemistry. (PG1, PG2)
  4. Propose reactions mechanisms correctly for different functional groups. (PG1, PG2)
  5. Describe the principles involving structural determination and reactions of select biomolecules such as carbohydrates, amino acids and lipids. (PG1, PG2)
  6. Propose reaction mechanisms and structural determination of organic compounds with functional groups learnt in this course using the spectroscopic methods of analysis learnt from the first semester of organic chemistry such as GC, MS, IR and NMR. (PG1, PG2, PG3)
  7. Perform collaborative laboratory explorations to reinforce understanding of chemical concepts, develop mastery in proper measuring techniques and laboratory report writing and relate lab experience to applications of chemistry in daily life. (PG1, PG2, PG3, PG4)
  8. Research and present information on selected topics from the course using various modes of communication (oral, written, and visual). (PG1, PG2, PG3, PG4)
