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.

Pre-requisite: Organic Chemistry I.

3 Hours Lecture and 3 Hour Laboratory – 4 credits.
