General Information


I. Catalog Course Description

Prerequisites: CHEM241

Provides an emphasis on functional groups, fundamental reaction mechanisms, and biomoleculaes. For life science and sciences majors. Continues CHEM 241. Three hours lecture.


II: Course Objectives

CHEM 242, Organic Chemistry II, is the second semester of a one-year lecture sequence in organic chemistry. The course is a continuation of CHEM 241 on 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 242 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 242 will satisfy the A.S. Chemistry emphasis program outcome that prepares students to be able to demonstrate an introductory level of knowledge in principles of general and organic chemistry with applications to biological systems.
