Organic Chemistry 2 - Majors

Organic Chemistry 2 - Majors
Emphasis on organic reactions, reaction mechanisms, synthesis, and spectroscopy building on the foundation of Chem 351M, including carbonyl chemistry, the chemistry of aromatic compounds, organic acids and bases, polymers, and biomolecules. Chem 352M provides a more in-depth treatment of the above topics than Chem 352.

Curved Arrow Mechanisms

Recognize and provide curved arrow mechanisms for the following types of organic reactions: electrophilic & nucleophilic aromatic substitution, nucleophilic carbonyl addition, nucleophilic acyl substitution, carbonyl condensation, [4 2] cycloaddition, and substitution ato a carbonyl.

Recognize and Predict Reactivity

Recognize and predict the reactivity of the following reactive species and/or reactive intermediates: Grignard reagents, Wittig reagents, organolithiums, diorganocuprates, enols, enolates, aryl diazonium ions, and benzynes.

Recognize and Predict Structure/Reactivity

Recognize and predict the structure and reactivity of the following classes of biologically important organic molecules: carbohydrates, amino acids, proteins, and lipids.
