Course Outcomes

Traditional Organic Reactions

Perform a broad range of traditional organic reactions at the micro scale including: nucleophilic carbonyl additions, hydroboration, nucleophilic acyl substitution, electrophilic aromatic substitution, [4 2] cycloaddition, and photochemical alkene isomerization.

Organic Chemistry Techniques

Implement fundamental organic chemistry techniques for carrying out basic experiments, and purifying products, at the micro scale including: extraction, distillation, recrystalization, column chromatography, and TLC.

Form Conclusions

Make correct conclusions about the outcome of experiments after collecting basic physical data, and after providing unambiguous interpretation of the necessary spectra.
