CHEM 2410H Organic Chemistry II/Lab

(B) Bachelors
Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences
Math, Science and Technology
4 credits

This course and related labs, the second part of a two-part sequence, study the chemistry of carbon compounds, including their structure, nomenclature, preparation, reactions, analysis, and properties. Reaction mechanisms within a functional group framework are stressed. Stability and reactivity, nucleophilicity and electrophilicity, spectroscopy, and structure-activity relationships will also be examined. Prerequisite: CHEM 2400 or CHEM 2400H. Honors students only.
