First half of a two semester sequence in organic chemistry for students interested in a chemistry or closely related career. Structure and bonding, stereochemistry, reactivity and synthesis of aliphatic hydrocarbons, alcohols, ethers and alkyl halides. Introduction to IR, NMR, and mass spectral techniques. 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 221 and CH 225.

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 225 would be concomitant with a reduction of a corresponding number of sections of CH 221.

Student Learning Outcomes

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


1. Draw structures and name organic compounds, including those that have E/Z or R/S configurations.


2. Compare physical properties of organic compounds.


3. Compare relative stabilities of molecules.


4. Draw the mechanisms, including transition states and intermediates, and predict the products of SNl, SN2, El, E2, free radical, electrophilic addition, and metal catalyzed hydrogenation reactions.


S. Devise synthetic schemes for preparing organic compounds.


6. Predict the products for various organic functional groups, including those that are stereo and regio-specific, and stereo- and regio-selective.


7. Describe chirality, and how it applies to reactions and drugs.


8. Elucidate structures of molecules by interpreting their 1H and 13C NMR spectra, IR spectra and UV-Visible spectra.


9. Apply concepts from the course to interpret data which comes from the chemical research literature


10. State how concepts from the course might be applied by a professional chemist


Evaluation MethodWeighting/Points for EachDetails
Exam20%Exam #1
Wednesday, September 18, in class

There will be three exams given in class throughout the semester on the days indicated on the course calendar. The exams will cover lecture, homework, and reading. If the NC State Adverse Weather Policy is in effect on an exam day, the exam will be postponed until the next class meeting, and a regular class will be held in its place, weather permitting. There will be no make-up exams. If an exam is missed for a documented legitimate excuse, the average score on the other exams, including the final exam, will replace the missing grade. Missing either two exams or the final without a documented, legitimate excuse will result in an automatic failure of the course. Missing either two exams or the final with a documented, legitimate excuse can result in the grade of IN (see “Policies on Incomplete Grades” below)
Exam20%Exam #2
Wednesday, October 16, in class

Exam20%Exam #3
Wednesday, November 13, in class

There will be three exams given in class throughout the semester on the days indicated on the course calendar. The exams will cover lecture, homework, and reading. If the NC State Adverse Weather Policy is in effect on an exam day, the exam will be postponed until the next class meeting, and a regular class will be held in its place, weather permitting.

Final Exam25%Check exam schedule and syllabus for date/time.

Missing either two exams or the final without a documented, legitimate excuse will result in an automatic failure of the course. Missing either two exams or the final with a documented, legitimate excuse can result in the grade of IN (see “Policies on Incomplete Grades” below). The final exam is cumulative and will contain approximately 50% old material and 50% new material covered in class after the last exam.
Homework15%Homework will be assigned once a week on Monday and will be due on the following Monday by the time class is over. Homework will not be due that Monday If it is a holiday, the homework will be due the next time class meets. Only select problems from each problem set will be graded; however all solutions will be provided via the website. Assigned Homework is to be done independently. Homework is due by the time that leaves the room after class is over. Late homework will not be accepted. Homework that is on multiple pages and not stapled will be returned without being graded and will receive a 0 for that assignment. There is a copious amount of information that you will be required to learn in this class, and your best chance of success is to do both the mandatory problems and the suggested problems.
