OCHM 316 - Organic Chemistry II (lecture)

This course further elaborates functional groups with emphasis on alcohols, phenols, ethers, aldehydes, ketones, amides, esters, amines, and carboxylic acids once the nature and reactivity of these functional groups is understood, important biological examples will be stressed and elaborated. Biochemistry, particularly the properties and metabolism of biological macromolecules such as nucleic acids, lipids, and proteins will be introduced. The course will continue a review of some of the major concepts in organic chemistry, building upon the knowledge of the prerequisite courses. A vocabulary of synthetic techniques will be developed, some deriving from natural processes, some developed by man. Enolate chemistry will be reviewed, as well as Electrophilic Aromatic Substitution. The Grignard and Wittig reactions will be discussed. Free radical chemistry will be introduced. An introduction to various forms of spectroscopy and spectrometry will be offered. The goal of the course will be to understand organic synthesis as performed in industry and to be capable of reviewing a total synthesis in the scientific literature.
