CHEM 242 - Organic Chemistry II

(3 units)
Continuation of CHEM 241 , with emphasis on additional functional groups, fundamental reaction mechanisms, and biomolecules. For life and environmental sciences majors. Credit not allowed in both CHEM 242 and CHEM 342 .

Prerequisite(s): CHEM 241 .

Units of Lecture: 3
Student Learning Outcomes:
Upon completion of this course:
1. Students will be able to predict aromaticity in simple molecules and predict aromatic substitution products.
2. Students will be able to identify oxygen-containing organic functional groups including alcohols, ketones, aldehydes, and carboxylic acids, and follow their transformations through oxidation-reduction, addition and substitution reactions.
3. Students will be able to identify nitrogen containing functional groups including amines, amides, and nitriles through correct prediction of their structures, properties, and simple reactions.
4. Students will be able to interpret simple IR spectra of organic molecules.
5. Students will be able to demonstrate correct use of arrow-pushing mechanisms for standard multistep organic reactions.
6. Students will be able to apply organic structural and reactivity concepts to fundamental molecules of biological importance.
