CHEM 244 - Organic Chemistry II

(4 credits)
Prerequisite: CHEM 243 with a minimum grade of “C-“
Corequisite: CHEM 244L

This course is a continuation of CHEM 243, with a focus on alcohols, ethers, aromaticity and delocalized bonding, spectroscopic structure identification, and the organic chemistry of biologically important molecules: aldehydes, ketones, carboxylic acids, their derivatives and amines. The laboratory must be taken concurrently with CHEM 244 and includes the preparation, purification and characterization of organic substances and identification of unknowns with a significant focus on spectroscopic structure elucidation. Three hours of lecture and four hours of laboratory weekly. Offered spring semester and summer session. (Formerly CHEM 344)
