SCI 374. Organic Chemistry II. 3 Credit Hours.

This course is the second semester offering of the full year of organic chemistry. This course will expand your basic knowledge of organic chemistry by developing a deeper understanding of the reactivity of functional groups such as aromatic rings, dienes, alcohols, amines, aldehydes, ketones, carboxylic acids and their derivatives. In addition, it will further your understanding of “electron pushing”, so that you are able to propose reasonable reaction mechanisms. Students will be able to use the fundamentals of functional group reactivity to develop multi-step syntheses of organic molecules. Finally, students will be able to use NMR spectroscopy, along with IR spectroscopy and mass spectrometry, to deduce unknown organic structures.
