Laboratory experience to accompany CH 220 or CH 221. Introduction to basic organic laboratory equipment and techniques. Students cannot receive credit for both CH 222 and CH 226.

This minor course revision (to the co-requisite and the catalog description) accompanies the course revision to CH 220.  That course currently is a four credit hour course, with three contact hours of lecture and three contact hours of laboratory.  The laboratory portion has evolved to be nearly identical to CH 222, which focuses on laboratory techniques, and is not synced to either lecture course (CH 220 or CH 221).  Rather than maintain the separate laboratory sections for the two lecture courses, we propose that CH 222 be the co-requisite to each.  This will allow us greater flexibility in setting the enrollment for CH 220 (which has risen steeply in the past few years) and allow students greater flexibility in scheduling their classes.

Requisites and Scheduling
a. If seats are restricted, describe the restrictions being applied.

b. Is this restriction listed in the course catalog description for the course?

List all course pre-requisites, co-requisites, and restrictive statements (ex: Jr standing; Chemistry majors only). If none, state none.

List any discipline specific background or skills that a student is expected to have prior to taking this course. If none, state none. (ex: ability to analyze historical text; prepare a lesson plan)

Additional Information
Complete the following 3 questions or attach a syllabus that includes this information. If a 400-level or dual level course, a syllabus is required.
Title and author of any required text or publications.

Major topics to be covered and required readings including laboratory and studio topics.

List any required field trips, out of class activities, and/or guest speakers.

The total number of laboratory sections available for students in CH 220 and CH 221 will not change (and could possibly decrease), so no additional resources will be needed for this revision.

Student Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to: 

1. Demonstrate compliance with the safety procedures and regulations that must be observed when performing organic chemistry experiments in a laboratory.  

2. Perform simple separations using Thin Layer Chromatography. 

3. Determine melting points and boiling points and use them to characterize organic compounds. 

4. Perform Infrared Spectroscopy and use the results obtained to identify organic compounds. 

5. Separate chemical mixtures by using liquid-liquid extraction and microextraction.

6. Use Gas Chromatography as a tool for separation and characterization of organic materials. 

7. Complete small-scale synthesis of simple organic materials and characterize the products obtained using a variety of techniques.  

8. Combine the use of different synthetic and separation methods in order to execute multi-step synthesis.
