CHE 230 - Organic Chemistry I with Lab (4 Cr.)

Chemistry of the compounds of carbon with emphasis on the relation of molecular structure to chemical and physical behavior. Topics covered include functional groups, nomenclature, structure, bonding, isomers, conformations, chirality, reactions that proceed through ionic mechanisms, structure elucidation using NMR, MS, and IR, and introduction to multistep synthesis. Specific reactions covered include acid-base, nucleophilic substitution, elimination, oxidation, reduction, and carbon-carbon bond formation reactions. Laboratory work includes appropriate techniques, synthetic and analytical methods including melting points, recrystallization, distllation, chromatography, extraction, GC/MS, and IR.  Three hours classroom, three hours laboratory. Prerequisites: CHE 151  with grade of C- or better. Fall semester. Ahmed-Schofield, Greco, Schultz.
