CHEM 341 - Organic Chemistry for Scientists and Professionals I

(3 units)
Detailed treatment of organic molecules, simple functional groups, stereochemistry, reaction mechanisms, introductory synthesis, and spectroscopy. For chemistry, biochemistry, molecular biology, and other pre-professional majors. Credit allowed in only one of CHEM 220A , CHEM 241 , or CHEM 341.

Prerequisite(s): CHEM 202  (CHEM 122A  and CHEM 122L  acceptable).

Units of Lecture: 3
Offered: Every Fall and Spring
Student Learning Outcomes:
Upon completion of this course:
1. Students will be able to draw correct organic structures from names and vice-versa, including stereochemistry, and distinguish isomers.
2. Students will be able to identify and explain different bonding concepts including resonance and formal charges.
3. Students will be able to apply fundamental principles of thermodynamics, kinetics and acid-base behavior to organic reactions.
4. Students will be able to predict products, reagents, and starting materials in substitution, elimination, and addition reactions applied to alkyl halides, alkenes and alkynes, correctly utilizing arrow pushing mechanisms, and applying stereo-, chemo-, and regioselectivity concepts.
5. Students will be able to devise simple multi-step organic syntheses.
6. Students will be able to predict organic structures from proton and carbon NMR spectroscopy experiments.
