COURSE CONTENT

Student Learning Outcomes:
Upon completion of the course, students will be able to:
Untitled document
1. Propose a synthetic route, predict the mechanisms for each step in the synthesis, and perform the synthesis and purification of a specified product from a list of given starting materials, while following common safety regulations and procedures.
2. Use nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), infrared (IR), gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS), and/or ultraviolet-visible data to elucidate the structures of unknown compounds and known compounds, and evaluate the success of the synthesis of a specific compound.
 

Objectives: Untitled document
Students will be able to:
1. Name a wide variety of organic compounds.
2. Predict and explain relative physical and chemical properties for a
    wide variety of organic molecules.
3. Predict the products and describe the mechanisms for a wide variety of
    organic compounds using fundamental chemical principles.
4. Effectively communicate observations and subsequent conclusions by
    means of written laboratory reports.
