CHEM 7B - Organic Chemistry II


5 units
3 hours lecture, 6 hours lab
Prerequisite: CHEM 7A  with a minimum grade of C
Credit, degree applicable
Transfer CSU, UC

This course involves a comprehensive study of aromatic compounds and the major classes of oxygen-containing and nitrogen-containing organic compounds. This includes nomenclature, structure, properties, stereochemistry, reactions, synthetic methods, and spectroscopy. Emphasis is placed on a systematic approach to understanding the material through the use of bonding theories, energy concepts, kinetics, and reaction mechanisms. A study of biochemistry focuses primarily on lipids, carbohydrates, amino acids and proteins. In the laboratory, emphasis is on qualitative organic analysis, common organic reactions, and multistep synthesis.
