CH 2220 - Organic Chemistry II
A continuation of the study of Organic Chemistry, this
course offers an introduction to the structure, properties,
nomenclature and chemistry of the aromatic compounds,
ketones, aldehydes, carboxylic acids and
there derivatives and the amines. The mechanism of
aromatic substitution, of additions, reductions and oxidations
of the carbonyl compounds and the synthesis
and reactions of the amines are studied. The role of
organic compounds in biological systems is introduced
throughout the course. The laboratory component is
used to demonstrate the reactions and mechanisms
discussed in the lecture portion and an introduction to
Nuclear Magnetic Resonance spectroscopy as used in
structure determination is included.
