CHM 232: Organic Chemistry II

Class Program
Credits 4

This course is the second semester of a comprehensive and somewhat rigorous survey of aliphatic and aromatic organic chemistry, with particular emphasis on reactions from both a synthetic as well as a mechanistic viewpoint. The topics include: Reactions of alkenes and alkynes, aromatic compounds, Alcohols and phenols, Ethers, Carboxylic acids and their derivatives. In addition, chemistry of important biomolecules such as carbohydrates, proteins, lipids and nucleic acids will be discussed.
