CHM 236 Organic Chemistry II

Part two of a two-semester science majors level course on the facts and principles of chemistry as they apply to carbon-based compounds.  The course has a mandatory lab that complements the lecture.  Topics include re-emphasis of lab safety; synthetic techniques; spectroscopy; patterns in the nomenclature, structure, physical properties, spectra; reactivity; stability, stereochemistry and chemical reactions of conjugated systems, benzene and its derivatives, aromatic systems, ethers, carbonyls, amines, carboxylic acids, esters, amides; acid chlorides; anhydrides; nitriles,enols, steroids, lipids, carbohydrates and amino acids; applying the principles of thermodynamics, kinetics and reaction mechanisms to the substitution addition, redox, condensation and elimination reactions of these compounds.  Prerequisite(s):  CHM 235 with a grade of C or better.  Three lecture and three laboratory hours per week.  Instructional Support Fee applies.
