CH 220 - Survey of Organic Chemistry

Credits: (4 credits)

A one- semester study of organic chemistry. Nonmenclature and reactions of the major functional groups are covered. Some biological applications of organic chemistry are discussed.

Prerequisite: Completion of CH131 or permission of instructor.

Learning Outcomes
Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to do the following:

  1. Analyze the structure of an organic compound by recognizing main functional groups, name the compound using the IUPAC system, and predict its properties using the type of bonding, hybridization state, intermolecular forces, and stereochemistry;
  2. Recognize the structure of complex organic compounds, such as lipids, carbohydrates, and proteins through a knowledge of their basic building blocks, such as acids, amines, and alcohols;
  3. Predict the behavior of various organic chemicals in the environment based on their chemical structure;
  4. Demonstrate proficiency in organic laboratory skills as they pertain to: chemical information, safe handling, use and disposal of organic compounds, synthetic procedures, including isolation, purification, and structure elucidation of obtained products; stoichiometry and use of instrumentation; and writing of laboratory notebooks and reports in accordance with current scientific journals styles.
Laboratory sessions will meet for three hours weekly.
