Course Syllabus Page 1 COURSE SYLLABUS 1 CHEM 2325 – ORGANIC CHEMISTRY II Summer 2011 Professor: Dr. Sergio Cortes Office : SLC 3.509 Phone : 972-883-6801 Email : [email protected] Website : Hours : TBA PREREQUISITES General Chemistry I and II or equivalent (lecture and laboratory) Organic chemistry I (lecture and laboratory) DESCRIPTION This course is a continuation of first semester organic chemistry. The focus is on specific functional group chemistry, organic synthesis, and instrumental techniques for structure determination such as NMR and IR spectroscopy and mass spectrometry. LEARNING OBJECTIVES & OUTCOMES Acquire a unified understanding of the various functional groups and their chemistry Understand the relationships between molecular structure and spectroscopic features, and use this knowledge effectively in structure determination Develop a strong mechanistic base for understanding organic reactions Apply the above skills in the effective planning and execution of synthetic schemes Obtain preparation for advanced courses, research, and successful performance in standardized tests where organic chemistry is a prominent component REQUIRED TEXTBOOK – L.G. Wade, Jr. Organic Chemistry . 7th. ed. RECOMMENDED MATERIALS 1. Solutions Manual The solutions manual to the Wade textbook contains the answers to all the problems in the textbook. Therefore it is strongly recommended. You might find it cost-effective to form a group of students and buy one copy for the group, since you won’t need it as regularly as the textbook. 2. Reference textbooks (prices quoted are current as of May 2011). Organic Chemistry I as a Second Language by David R. Klein. A more in-depth discussion of basic principles such as resonance structures, use of curved arrows, orbital hybridizations, etc. About $30 at Amazon. Organic Chemistry II as a Second Language by David R. Klein. Coverage of typical concepts presented in organic chemistry II courses. About $28 at Amazon. The Nuts and Bolts of Organic Chemistry by Joel Karty. About $43 new at Amazon affiliated sellers. 1 The descriptions and timelines presented in this syllabus are subject to change at the discretion of the professor.
