Second half of a two semester laboratory sequence in organic chemistry for students interested in a chemistry or closely related career. Laboratory experiments in multi-step organic synthesis, identification and characterization of compounds by spectroscopic methods. Searching the chemical literature. 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 224 and CH 228.

We wish to modify the list of majors for which this course is open.  Biochemistry majors are already included in the list, but freshmen who aspire to biochemistry now enter through the Life Sciences First Year Program (Biochemistry intended) designated 11LSFY-11BCHI.  That program code is now added to the catalog description.

No new resources are required for this course. Addition of CH 228 would be concomitant with a reduction of a corresponding number of sections of CH 224.

Student Learning Outcomes

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

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


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


3. Characterize and identify compounds using spectroscopic methods.


4. Search the chemical literature for information regarding the synthesis and properties of organic compounds.


5. Communicate results through writing exercises and formal laboratory reports.


Evaluation MethodWeighting/Points for EachDetails
Other35%Assessments

The assessments will consist of written quizzes on the dates indicated in the schedule. The quizzes will cover laboratory technique, interpretation of experimental results, and the chemical concepts that apply to the experiments.
Lab assignments40%Weekly Lab Worksheets

Each week, there will be a worksheet due at the end of the lab period. They are available on Moodle and students need to print them out before coming to lab.
Lab Report20%Formal Lab Reports

Students will write a formal lab report in the style and format of a journal article. Three different sections will be due as indicated on the schedule, with the final version due on the next to last laboratory meeting.
Other5%Peer Review

Each week prior to turning in a section of the formal lab report, students will bring a draft to the lab and be responsible for reviewing and commenting upon reports of their peers.
