This is an exploration of the physical properties and chemical behavior of important classes of organic compounds, focusing on amines, carboxylic acids, and carboxylic acid derivatives, with an introduction to the chemistry of terpenes, lipids, carbohydrates, and proteins. Topics include retrosynthesis, spectroscopic structure determination, and the reaction mechanism. Laboratory experiments will involve the multistep synthesis of organic compounds and the characterization of those compounds using chromatography and infrared (IR) and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy. This course is for chemistry majors or those in closely-allied fields such as biochemistry and chemical engineering.
