Organic Chemistry 353/4 Fall 2010 Instructor: R. Todd Bronson, Dr. Office Phone: 422-7388 Office: C163 / C401 BNSN E-mail: [email protected] Office Hours: MWF 9-10 am I. Course Information Prerequisites: At least concurrent enrollment in Chem. 352, and therefore completion of Chem. 351. Required Materials: 1 ) Techniques in Organic Chemistry, 3 rd edition, Mohrig, J,; Hammond, C.; Schatz, P.; Freeman 2010. (ISBN: 1-4292- 1956-4, ISBN-13: 978-1-429-21956-3 2 ) Organic Chemistry Laboratory Notebook , Bronson, T.; Hayden McNeil 2010. (ISBN: 978-073804175-9). 3 ) Spectroscopy , Bronson, T.: BYU Academic Publishing 2010. (ISBN: 978-0-7003-7168- 6) 4 ) Splash guard goggles, as presented on the first day of class. Course Objectives The four main objectives of this course are: 1) to successfully perform a broad range of traditional organic chemistry reactions 2) to demonstrate competency in characterizing reactants, products and unknown organic compounds both by physical and by spectroscopic properties with an emphasis on spectroscopy 3) to apply a broad range of modern microscale organic chemistry techniques safely while performing reactions, and 4) to demonstrate a general knowledge of each reaction, and of standard laboratory practices. In other words, you will run many well known reactions, analyze evidence that you made or isolated what you proposed in each case, and do it in a manner that is safe, current, and organized in a reproducible manner in a proper notebook. Attendance Expectations Lecture must be attended before each laboratory session unless you are otherwise directed to go straight to lab. Be sure to check blackboard announcements and your email before coming to lab. Lecture will consist mainly of an opportunity to review the procedures and the techniques associated with the lab work. You are expected to attend lab only during your section. All students are allowed the same amount of time to complete the assigned work. Exiting when the first bell rings is required. Exiting will be a part of your lab work grade; it will start out as a full 20 point lab with points subtracted during the semester for leaving late (after the first bell). Excused Absences and Late Work Policy An email permission slip, obtained from you instructor before missing lab, will be needed in order to attend a section other than your own to make up missed time. A copy of the actual email response must be in your possession during the make-up lab, and that same copy signed and dated by a TA must be turned in with any late work in order to receive full credit. Late work due to absence must be turned in within one week of the missed lab. This includes any work that may have been due on the date missed. Work that is turned in late without an email permission slip will be docked 2 points for each school day it is late, up to 10 points, not including any points missed due to errors. Work turned in more than a week late will be docked the full 20 points. TA ______________________ Date ________
