Chemistry 231: Organic Chemistry II
Students will correctly employ reaction mechanisms to describe the progress of organic
reactions, including reactions involving more than four steps.
Given the molecular formula of a compound of basic to intermediate complexity and spectral
data (including a combination of IR, 1H NMR, 13C NMR/DEPT, and MS spectra), students
correctly identify important structural features of the compound and synthesize the information
obtained to elucidate the compound's structure.
Given a specified target molecule of intermediate complexity, students develop a retrosynthesis
to a specified starting material, and construct a valid synthesis scheme based on the
retrosynthesis, employing protecting groups where appropriate.
Students predict the products of reactions of benzene and mono- or di-substituted aromatic
compounds in electrophilic aromatic substitution reactions and nucleophilic aromatic substitution
Students determine correct IUPAC and common names for compounds containing one or more
of the following functional groups: alcohol, amine, aldehyde, ketone, carboxylic acid, ester,
Students correctly predict the major product(s) of compounds containing carbon-oxygen double
bonds with common reagents.
Students predict the product(s) of reactions of dienes, including (1) reactions employing kinetic
or thermodynamic control to favor a particular regioisomer, and (2) reactions with dienophiles
via the Diels-Alder reaction.
Students correctly predict the products of reactions involving bio-organic compounds
(carbohydrates, amino acids, etc.), including (1) synthesis of carbohydrates and their derivatives
and (2) peptide synthesis.
