First half of a two semester laboratory sequence in organic chemistry for students interested in a chemistry or closely related career. Laboratory experiments in the determination of physical properties of organic compounds, separation of mixtures and purification of compounds, synthesis and spectroscopic characterization of organic compounds, and the execution of a multi-step synthesis. This course is open to 17CHEMBS, 17CHEMBA, 14EFY-14CHEI, 14CHEBS, 11BIOCHBS, 11LSFY-11BCHI and 17MARSCBS-17MARSCHM majors and to students with departmental approval. Students cannot receive credit for both CH 222 and CH 226.

The course is primarily designed for chemistry majors, but the intent has been to allow chemical engineering majors and biochemistry majors, along with students from other closely related disciplines, to participate.  With the advent of the Life Science First Year program, incoming students intending to major in Biochemistry are now designated 11LSFY-11BCHI.  This revision adds this designation to the list of majors for which the course is open in the catalog description.

No new resources are required for this course. Addition of CH 226 would be concomitant with a reduction of a corresponding number of sections of CH 222.

Student Learning Outcomes

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


2. Separate mixtures using Thin Layer, Column and Gas Chromatography.


3. Separate mixtures using liquid-liquid extraction, microextraction and steam distillation.


4. Purify organic compounds using recrystallization and sublimation.


5. Characterize organic compounds determining melting and boiling points.


6. Acquire infrared spectra and use the results to identify organic compounds.


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


8. Synthesize simple polymers and characterize them via Infrared Spectroscopy.


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