For chemistry majors and otherwise qualified students planning three or more quarters of organic chemistry. Structure, nomenclature, reactions, and synthesis of organic compounds. Theory and mechanism of organic reactions. Studies of biomolecules. No organic laboratory accompanies this course. No more than 5 credits can be counted toward graduation from the following course group: CHEM 221, CHEM 223, CHEM 237, CHEM 335. Prerequisite: either CHEM 155 or CHEM 162. Offered: A.
This is the honors version of organic chemistry.
The first nine chapters of the Solomons "Organic Chemistry" text will be covered. The new 11th edition (Solomons, Fryhle, Snyder), bundled with a molecular models kit (Darling Models) and the study guide and solution manual would be my suggestion. I will be basing my lectures, and comments in lecture notes will be, based on the 11th edition. The 9th and 10th edition are acceptable, the authors are Solomons & Fryhle. The other recommended model kit is the HGS model kit.
Student learning goals
General method of instruction
The text coverage will be assumed. The professor's lecture material will expand on this with more detailed mechanistic explanations and many additional examples of the reactions covered.
