Alberto M. Lopez (Section 01)


A continuation of CHEM 221. The second semester of the organic chemistry course first examines the chemistry of aromatic derivatives and then in considerable detail the chemistry of the carbonyl group and some classic methods of organic synthesis. Periodically, examples will be chosen from recent articles in the chemical, biochemical, and biomedical literature. The laboratory experiments illustrate both fundamental synthetic procedures and some elementary mechanistic investigations. Four hours of class and three and a half hours of laboratory per week.

Prerequisite: CHEM 221.

Fall Semester: Visiting Professor Lopez; Spring Semester: Professor Hansen and Visiting Professor Lopez.
