Organic Chem I Lab

Listed in: Chemistry, as CHEM-221L


David E. Hansen (Sections 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06 and 07)
Lauren M. Reutenauer (Sections 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06 and 07)


A study of the structure of organic compounds and of the influence of structure upon the chemical and physical properties of these substances. The following topics are emphasized: hybridization, resonance theory, stereochemistry, acid-base properties, nucleophilic substitution reactions, and spectroscopy. Periodically, examples will be chosen from recent articles in the chemical, biochemical, and biomedical literature. Laboratory work introduces the student to basic laboratory techniques and methods of instrumental analysis. Each laboratory section is limited to 20 students. In the fall, sufficient sections will be added to meet total enrollment. The spring semester is limited to two laboratory sections.  Three hours of lecture, one hour of discussion section, and three and one-half hours of laboratory per week.
