CHE351 Organic Chemistry II

Lead Faculty: Dr. Dzung T. Nguyen

Course Description

Study of the properties and reactions of aromatic compounds, aldehydes, ketones, carboxylic acids, amines, and amides. In addition, students are introduced to the use of modern spectroscopic techniques to analyze and predict structures of organic molecules.

Learning Outcomes

  • Use modern chemical spectroscopic techniques to identify functional groups and to predict the skeleton structures of organic molecules
  • Explain the important role of organic chemistry in life from both biological and economical perspectives.
  • Identify properties and predict reactions aromatic compounds.
  • Identify properties and predict reactions of aldehydes and ketones.
  • Identify properties and predict reactions of carboxylic acids.
  • Identify properties and predict reactions of amines and amides.
