CHEM 248 Organic Chemistry for Majors II 6.5 Credits
This course continues developing the basic foundation of modern organic chemistry started in CHEM 246. Lecture topics include the chemistry of alcohols, ethers, conjugated systems, aromatic compounds and thiols. The principles of IR, MS, 1-H and 13-C NMR will be taught in lecture and put to use in identifying products in the lab. Other lab topics include the preparation of alcohols, a Grignard synthesis, an alkene addition reaction, an aromatic nitration, a Friedel-Crafts reaction, the preparation of ferrocene, and how to safely handle water-sensitive chemicals.
