CHEM 216 - Organic Chemistry II


3 hrs (Sem II)
This course lays the groundwork for more complex topics by teaching students how to think about chemical mechanisms, introducing the concepts of electrophilicity, nucleophilicity, addition reactions, and substitution reactions. It introduces classic methods for carbon-carbon bond formation, including the use of enolates and rearrangement reactions. Students learn to predict the relative reactivity of functional groups and are introduced to the concepts of thermodynamic and kinetic control. 3 lecture hours.

Prerequisite(s): A grade of C or better in CHEM 215  and CHEM 215L .
