Description: A continuation of CHM235, explore the general principles of organic chemistry with advanced continued emphasis on reactivity and synthesis. Topics covered are alcohols and thiols, ethers and epoxides, aldehydes and ketones, carboxylic acids and their derivatives, carbohydrates, lipids, amines, amino acids, polymers, and aromatic compounds. In-person lab experience includes additional techniques in organic chemistry; preparation, separation, and identification of organic compounds, including polymers, benzocaine, soaps, and amines. Prerequisite: CHM235.
