Chemistry 730: Intermediate Organic Chemistry Autumn , 2010 , 3 Credits Course Home Page : Available at Instructor : Professor Craig J. Forsyth, 4107 Newman-Wolfram Lab, 688-5347, [email protected] . Office hours: Mondays and Wednesdays, 1:30 P.M. – 2:30 P.M. in 4107 Newman Wolfrom Lab, and other times by appointment. Teaching Assistant : Mr. Matt Jackel (Office: 4028 Evans Lab; e-mail: [email protected]). Office hours: TTh 1:30-2:30, and other times by appointment. Lectures : Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays at 12:30 P.M. -1:18 P.M., in 1040 McPherson Lab Prerequisites: One full year of a collegiate Sophomore-level organic chemistry course sequence, culminating in OSU Chemistry 253 or equivalent. This is a challenging and fast-paced course that will require at least 15 hours per week of time commitment and even more in the way of intellectual engagement. Course Description: Chemistry 730 is an intermediate level organic chemistry course. It is intended to bridge the gap between sophomore-level organic chemistry and more advanced graduate level courses in organic chemistry. In general, students are expected to have mastered the topics covered in undergraduate organic chemistry. Students must review the basics of bonding in organic compounds; stereochemistry; definitions and terminology related to chirality; functional group chemistry of alkenes, alkynes, alcohols, aromatic and carbonyl compounds; reaction mechanisms; kinetics; and thermodynamics. Texts : Required : Carey, Frances A.; Sundberg, Richard J. Advanced Organic Chemistry, 5th Ed. Parts A and B, Kluver Academic: New York, 2007. Recommended supplementary : Boger, Dale L., Modern Organic Synthesis Lecture Notes, TSRI Press; and Smith, M.; March, J. March’s Advanced Organic Chemistry . Reactions, Mechanisms and Structure, 6th Ed. Wiley: New York, 2007 (ISBN 978-0- 471-72091-1). Molecular Models: Students should purchase a useful set of molecular models. Model- building and three-dimensional visualization of intermediates should become an integral part of students’ study habits. Models may be used during examinations ; clear, intelligible three-dimensional drawings are expected in answers to problem set and examination questions, when appropriate. Withdrawal: The last date for withdrawal from this class without a W is October 9 and with a W is November 6. The University will not generally allow withdrawal from the course after November 6 without a petition. Examinations and Grading:
