Organic Chemistry II

This course continues the one-year organic chemistry sequence begun in CHEM 210. Topics covered include the structure and reactivity of alcohols, aldehydes and ketons, organometalic compounds, carboxylic acids and derivatives, amines and other nitrogen functions, aromatic compounds, sulfur-, phosphorus-, and silicon-containing compounds, heterocyclic compounds, and di- and polyfunctional compounds; conjugation and aromaticity; multistep organic synthesis; and biological chemistry. The course emphasizes the application of organic chemistry reaction mechanisms learned in Chemistry 210 to other compounds. It examines new reactions specific for different functional groups, including alcohols, thiols, aldehydes and ketones, carboxylic acid derivative, aryl halides, and biochemistry-related organic chemistry molecules.
