CHEM 3422 Organic Chemistry II 3/0/3

Prerequisite: CHEM 2411 with a minimum grade of C and CHEM 3422L

The second course will systematically explore reactions of carbon-containing compounds and the mechanistic pathways involved in these processes. Reactions that will be discussed include functional group transformations, oxidation, reductions, cyclo-additions and carbon-carbon bond formation. The course begins to teach the student how to systematically design a multi-step synthesis of complex organic compounds. CHEM 3422L may be taken concurrently.
