CHEM206 - Organic Chemistry II

This course is designed to develop and build upon the basic background in organic chemistry learned in CHEM 205. The following topics will be covered: general synthesis, reaction and reaction mechanisms of major organic functional groups: alcohols, ethers, carbonyl compounds [aldehydes, ketones, carboxylic acids and their derivatives, beta di keto compounds, amino compounds, heterocyclic aromatic compounds, and various biological compounds. In addition, Aromatic compounds, the rule of aromaticity and the preparation, reaction, and reaction mechanism of Electrophilic Substitution and Nucleophilic addition. Emphasis will be placed on reaction mechanisms and a survey of biological macromolecules. Brief details about the structure of Carbohydrates, Proteins, Lipids, and Nucleic acids. In addition, of DNA and RNA Sequences, and the Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR). CHEM 206 fulfills the SUNY General Education Natural Sciences requirement. Prerequisites: CHEM 205; RDNG 116 if required by placement testing; prior completion or concurrent enrollment in ENGL 100. 4 Cr. (3 Lec., 3 Lab.)
