Organic Chemistry Chem 2152—Section 10 Spring 2012 Instructor : Cynthia S. Dowd (Samson 303; 202-994-8405; [email protected]) Time : Mon/Wed, 9:35-10:50am Location: MPA 310 Office Hours : Mon/Wed, 11:00am-12:30pm in Sam 303 and by appointment Required Text : Organic Chemistry, L.G. Wade, Jr., 7 th Edition, Prentice Hall Problem assignments and additional information will be posted on Blackboard. Optional Materials: Solutions Manual for Wade’s Organic Chemistry, J.W. Simek Molecular Model Set Course Goals: The overall objective of the course is to build knowledge of synthetic organic chemistry through the exploration of specific functional groups. Several basic functional groups and their reactions were introduced in Chem 2151. Chem 2152 will use these concepts as well as introduce more advanced synthetic concepts and techniques. Reactions will be combined in a step-wise process, enabling the student to create complex and interesting organic molecules. We will use spectroscopic methods for the determination of organic structures, and combine that information with chemical observations to deduce the structures of increasingly complex substances. The semester will conclude with an examination of the chemistry of biologically important macromolecules. Order of Material to be covered: Chapter 14 Ethers, Epoxides, and Sulfides Chapter 15 Conjugated Systems Chapter 16 Aromatic Compounds Chapter 17 Reactions of Aromatic Compounds Chapter 12 Infrared Spectroscopy and Mass Spectrometry Chapter 13 Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy Chapter 18 Ketones and Aldehydes Chapter 22 Condensations and Alpha Substitutions of Carbonyl Compounds Chapter 19 Amines Chapter 20 Carboxylic Acids Chapter 21 Carboxylic Acid Derivatives Chapter 23 Carbohydrates and Nucleic Acids (selected sections) Chapter 24 Amino Acids, Peptides, and Proteins (selected sections) Learning Objectives: By the end of the semester, the student should know how to: 1. Provide and decipher correct chemical names for simple organic molecules; 2.
