General Information


I. Catalog Course Description

Prerequisites: CHEM122

Introduces the chemistry of carbon compounds; functional groups; relationships among molecular structure, properties and reactivity and biological relevance. For life and environmental sciences majors. Credit allowed in only one of CHEM 220 or 241. Three hours lecture.


II: Course Objectives

CHEM 241, Organic Chemistry I, is the first semester of a one-year lecture sequence in organic chemistry. This course is explores the chemistry of carbon compounds, including functional groups, molecular structure and nomenclature, properties and reactivity and biological relevance. For science, engineering, and pre-professional majors needing a course in organic chemistry. Three hours lecture.

Upon successful completion of CHEM 242, students should understand the principles of organic compounds including:

  • Nomenclature
  • Structure
  • Reactions and reaction mechanisms
  • Synthesis of organic molecules.

III: Course Linkage

A.S. Chemistry emphasis Program Mission: CHEM 241 is a recommended elective course for the A.S. Chemistry emphasis degree program and satisfies the program mission to prepare students for baccalaureate programs in the science, health, teaching, and engineering fields, or the work force in chemistry-related industries. A. S. Chemistry emphasis Program Student Learning Outcomes: Students who successfully complete CHEM 241 will satisfy the A.S. Chemistry emphasis program outcome of having an introductory level of knowledge in principles of general and organic chemistry with applications to biological systems.
