CHEM 205 - Organic Chemistry 2 (and Lab)

5 credits

Continuation of CHEM 201 Organic Chemistry 1 (and Lab) . In-depth study of the structure, synthesis and reactivity (including detailed mechanisms) of conjugated, aromatic, carbonyl and nitrogen compounds. Multi-step syntheses is emphasized. Additional topics may include heterocycles, pericyclic reactions, biochemical molecules/pathways and/or polymers. Laboratory experiments are related to topics covered in lecture and build upon the organic laboratory techniques learned in first semester, featuring more complex syntheses and spectroscopic methods of analysis.

Notes: Organic Chemistry 2 is the second semester of a one-year (two-semester) comprehensive organic chemistry course designed for science or engineering majors transferring to a four-year college or for students fulfilling prerequisites for medical school or related programs.

Prerequisites: CHEM 201 Organic Chemistry 1 (and Lab)  with a grade of “C” or higher.
Offered in the Spring semester and Summer Session 2.
