Organic Chemistry 2. 3-3-0. CHEM 221 A continuation of Chem 221. (40.0504) PREREQUISITES: Chem 221 C or better REQUIRED TEXTS AND OTHER MATERIALS: Organic Chemistry, 1st edition, by David R. Klein RECOMMENDED TEXT: Organic Chemistry as a Second Language by David Klein COURSE GOALS: CHEM 222, as a Core Curriculum course, fulfills three hours of general education requirements in the area of the natural sciences and is thus designed to enable students to meet the following broad outcome for all the natural sciences: Goal: Upon completion of the undergraduate curriculum, students will be able to comprehend and to apply the basic principles of science and methods of scientific inquiry. For further explanation of the learning objectives associated with this goal, go to http://www.nicholls.edu/gened/goals_objectives.html. In addition, the student will develop an understanding of The synthesis of carbon based compounds. Representative reactions involving different classes of aliphatic and aromatic compounds. Spectroscopic data interpretation and acquisition. CHEM 222 meets these goals by the following course-specific student learning outcomes: STUDENT OUTCOME OBJECTIVES: At the end of the class the student will be able to demonstrate a knowledge of addition reactions and their mechanisms, Demonstrate a knowledge of elimination reactions (E1 and E2) and their mechanisms, Identify and name organic compounds, using the proper nomenclature for the various classes of compounds, Demonstrate a knowledge of radical reactions and their mechanisms, Demonstrate a knowledge of functional group transformations and name reactions, Demonstrate a knowledge of multi-step synthesis, Show the products of reactions, Write a reaction scheme to produce desired product, Interpret spectroscopic data, Identify compounds based upon their spectroscopic data, and Understand the workings of the various instrumentation Demonstrate a knowledge of aromatic compounds and Aromatic Substitution reactions, Demonstrate a knowledge of aldehydes, ketones, carboxylic acids, enols and enolates and amines, COURSE CONTENT: Chapter 8: Alkenes: Struture and Preparation via Elimination Reactions Chapter 9: Addition Reactions of Alkenes Chapter 10: Alkynes Chapter 11: Radical Reactions Chapter 12: Synthesis Chapter 13: Alcohols and Phenols Chapter 14: Ethers and Epoxides Chapter 15: IR Spectroscopy and Mass Spectrometry Chapter 16: NMR Chapter 18: Aromatic Compounds Chapter 19: Aromatic Substitution Reactions Chapter 20: Aldehydes and Ketones Chapter 21: Carboxylic Acids and Their Derivitives Chapter 22: Enols and Enolates Chapter 23: Amines COURSE REQUIREMENTS: Quizzes: (100 pts each): Quizzes and home works of will be assigned for each chapter in www.wileyplus.com and grades will be given after the deadline. Exams (3 X 100 pts each): (February 22, March 19, April 25) Final exam (100 pts): 8-10 AM, May 7, 2012. Exams and quizzes are based upon lecture, text, and homework. The types of problems on the exams will be short answer, naming compounds, drawing structures, mathematical problems, synthesis, and predicting products. Some of the questions may incorporate two or three concepts. All of chemistry is cumulative, organic chemistry is no exception. Therefore, exams, including the final, will be comprehensive. The student averaging 96 % from Exams (1, 2, and 3) and quizzes and assignments will be awarded by exempting from taking the final. An automatic 100% will be given for the final exam score. METHOD OF EVALUATION: I do not use a curve for the class grades; rather, a straight percentage is used to determine your grade. 100-90% A 89-80% B 79-65% C 64-55% D MAKE-UP POLICY: Make-up exams for excused absences will be given as determined by instructor. Other assignments will not be accepted late. ATTENDANCE POLICY: It is highly recommended that you attend class every day. Promptness is expected. ACADEMIC HONESTY POLICY: Any student found cheating will be subject to the penalties as stated in the Student Code of Conduct handbook; including but not limited to a score of zero on exam, expulsion from the class or expulsion from the University. SEMESTER WITHDRAWALS: The last day to withdraw from the class with a “W” is March 28, 2011. Please consult with instructor about drops ACADEMIC DISABILITIES POLICY: If you have a documented disability that requires assistance, you will need to register with the Office of Disability Services for coordination of your academic accommodations. The Office of Disability Services is located in Peltier Hall, Room 100-A. The phone number is (985) 448-4430 (TDD 449-7002). CLASS DISRUPTIONS: Are not tolerated. The use of cell phones, pager and/or any other electronic personal devise in class is prohibited. Any infractions will result in the dismissal from class. ACADEMIC GRIEVANCES: The proper procedure for filing grade appeals or grievances related to academic matters is listed in Section 5 of the Code of Student Conduct and at the following link: http://www.nicholls.edu/documents/student_life/code_of_conduct.pdf. CONTINUED LEARNING FOLLOWING AN EXTREME EMERGENCY: In order to make continued learning possible following an extreme emergency, students are responsible for: • reading regular emergency notifications on the NSU website; • knowing how to use and access Blackboard (or university designated electronic delivery system); • being familiar with emergency guidelines; • evacuating textbooks and other course materials; • knowing their Blackboard (or designated system) student login and password; • contacting faculty regarding their intentions for completing the course. Faculty are responsible for: • their development in the use of the Blackboard (or designated) software; • having a plan for continuing their courses using only Blackboard and email; • continuing their course in whatever way suits the completion of the course best, and being creative in the continuation of these courses; • making adjustments or compensations to a student’s progress in special programs with labs, clinical sequences or the like only in the immediate semester following the emergency. Note: This is not a binding contract. This syllabus is subject to change throughout the course.
