Course Description: 

A continuation of Chemistry 221. Aromatic compounds, alcohols, ethers, aldehydes, ketones, amines, carboxylic acids and their derivatives are studied. Aromatic substitution, acyl transfer and carbonyl condensation reactions are developed. The mechanistic implications and synthetic applications of these organic reactions are evaluated. One four-hour “discovery” laboratory session per week is included. Microscale synthetic techniques and identification (chemical and spectroscopic) of organic compounds are included. Prerequisite: Chemistry 221. (It is recommended that students with a grade of C- or below in Chemistry 221 do not continue in Chemistry 222.) One and one-half units.
