The laboratory work focuses on techniques of synthesis, isolation, purification and instrumental analysis of organic compounds. Chem. 211 provides the foundation for further work in Organic chemistry ll (Chem. 212) and Biochemistry. Lecture hours per week: 3 Lab hours per week: 6 Prerequisites: A grade of C or better in Chemistry 102 is a prerequisite for enrollment in Chem. 211. Text Book: Lecture: Solomons, Fryhle "Organic Chemistry" 10th Edition Lab: Mohrig, Hammod and et al, “ Modern Projects and Experiments in Organic Chemistry” ( Mini scale and Williamson Micro scale) 2 nd edition Optional Reading Materials: There is also a study guide for Solomons that has solutions to the problems. The following books are also suggested: “Organic Chemistry” by Morrison and Boyd, "Organic Chemistry", “Organic Chemistry” by Brown; “Organic Chemistry” by Ege. Please understand that you can not learn by only attending classes, or by merely reading your notes or textbook. This course requires a lot of practicing in writing molecular structures, names of molecules, reagents and reactions. There is no substitute of continuous effort to working out problems on your own. You should seek help only after you have done your best to solve the problem. Student Learning outcome (SLO ): Upon successful completion of chemistry 211, the you will be able to:

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
