BIO108/CHEM104: Organic Chemistry II
Free Closed [?]
This course is a continuation of CHEM103 : Organic Chemistry I. As you progress through the units below, you will continue to learn the different chemical reactions characteristic of each family of organic compounds. We will focus on four most important classes of reactions: electrophilic substitution at aromatic rings, nucleophilic addition at carbonyl compounds, hydrolysis of carboxylic acids, and carbon-carbon bond formation using enolates. The enolate portion of this course will cover the reactivity of functional groups. We will also look at synthetic strategies for making simple, small organic molecules, using the knowledge of organic chemistry accumulated thus far. At the end of this course, you will possess the tools you need to plan the synthesis of fairly complicated molecules, like those used in pharmaceutics. From the perspective of a synthetic organic chemist, the two most challenging aspects of synthesizing drug molecules are the incorporation of "molecular rings" (rings of 5, 6,…
