CHE 212 Organic Chemistry II

5 Credit Hours • 105 Contact Hours (60 Lecture, 45 Lab)

Prerequisite: CHE 211 (Grade of C or higher)

Continues the investigation into the chemistry of carbon-based compounds, their reactions and synthesis including the structure, physical properties, reactivity, and synthesis of organic functional groups not covered in the first semester. This course explores functional groups including alcohols, ethers, aromatics, aldehydes, ketones, amines, amides, esters, and carboxylic acids and the reactions and reaction mechanisms of aromatic compounds. An introduction to biochemical topics may be included if time permits. Lab experiences demonstrate the above concepts and the laboratory techniques associated with organic chemistry.
