CHEM 204 - Organic Chemistry II

Continuation of CHEM 203  Organic Chemistry I with emphasis on aromatic compounds, alcohols, ethers, amines, and carbonyl compounds. Laboratory work reinforces organic synthesis techniques including isolation, purification, and structure determination using analytical methods. PREREQUISITE(S): A grade of C or better in CHEM 203  within the last five years, or consent of department chair, course coordinator, or designated member of Chemistry faculty. Three hours lecture, one hour discussion, four hours laboratory each week. Formerly CH 204.

5 semester hours

Course Outcomes:
Upon course completion, a student will be able to:

  • Systematically name and represent organic compounds with specific functional groups
  • Describe chemical reactivity based on the physical properties of the functional groups present
  • Understand the utility of organic chemical reactions by predicting products and proposing reactions for multistep synthesis
  • Use arrow pushing mechanisms to illustrate organic reactions and predict products
  • Safely work in an organic laboratory including the proper handling of chemicals and waste
  • Perform organic reactions and successfully purify and characterize the products
  • Characterize organic compounds using physical properties and spectroscopic methods
  • Identify organic molecules using mass spectrometry, infrared spectroscopy, and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy
  • Represent, analyze, and interpret scientific data in written formal reports
