CHEM 211 - Organic Chemistry II
This is the second half of a two-semester course in Organic Chemistry. Building upon
the concepts of functional group, syntheses design and reaction mechanisms
introduced in the first term, students investigate the structure and reactions of
aldehydes and ketones, carboxylic acids and their derivatives, dienes and conjugated
systems, benzene and its derivatives, amines, and organometallic compounds.
Students are introduced to the essential instrumental techniques of infrared
spectroscopy, nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, and mass spectrometry with
an emphasis on interpretation and structure elucidation. The mandatory labs further
develop the students? hands-on skills including some of the instrumental methods
covered in class.
Students must also register in the mandatory lab component of the course, CHEM 211L.
