I. Catalog Course Description

Prerequisites: CHEM122 ; Corequisites: CHEM241

Introduces the chemistry of carbon compounds; functional groups; relationships among molecular structure, properties and reactivity and biological relevance. For life and environmental sciences majors. Three hours laboratory.


II: Course Objectives

CHEM 241L, Organic Chemistry Laboratory for Life Sciences I, is the first semester of a one-year laboratory sequence in organic chemistry. Introduces the organic chemistry techniques relevant to lab study such as isolation, characterization, purification, and synthesis of organic compounds, with an introduction to uv-vis and ir spectroscopy . For life and environmental sciences majors. Three hours laboratory per week.

Upon successful completion of CHEM 241L, students will understand laboratory practices and techniques related to principles of organic compounds.
