About CHEM 2580 Z1

Properties and reactivity of organic compounds with consideration of bonding, stereochemistry, and reaction mechanisms. For premedical and biological sciences students. Credit not awarded for both CHEM 2580 and CHEM 1580, CHEM 1582, or CHEM 1500. Prerequisite: CHEM 1450 or CHEM 1455.

Notes

Registration for lecture includes lab; Course is very intensive and should not be taken concurrently with any other summer classes; Lab Fee $75 for supplies; Prereqs: CHEM 1450 or CHEM 1455

Section Description

Welcome to Organic Chemistry. The reactions and structures you learn throughout this semester are cumulative and will be applied to discussions later in the semester and into the spring. AIMS: At the end of this course (and Chem2585) a successful student will have developed skills and knowledge that allow them to answer the following questions:- I:- Recognize the atoms and bonding present in common functional groups, their resultant chemical properties and likely reactions. II:- Be able to create rational curved-arrow mechanisms to predict the likely products of reactions. Students that can combine these skills will be most successful, as this skillset will allow them to communicate with scientists in many other fields.

Section Expectation

Students will be expected to work independently to learn mechanisms, reactions, naming of chemical structures, and shapes/relationships of molecules. This will require problem-solving and some memorization.

Evaluation

The course grade will be based on exams, online homework, lab reports and lab quizzes.

Important Dates
