Second half of a two semester sequence in organic chemistry for students interested in a chemistry or other closely related career. Structure and bonding, stereochemistry, reactivity and synthesis of aromatic compounds. Condensation reactions and organic compounds of biological interest. 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 223 and CH 227.

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 227 would be concomitant with a reduction of a corresponding number of sections of CH 223.

Student Learning Outcomes

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


1. Draw structures and name organic compounds including benzene derivatives, carbonyl compounds and nitrogen containing compounds.


2. Describe the attributes that make a molecule aromatic.


3. Describe the bonding, polarity, and the boiling point and solubility trends In the compounds listed in #1.


4. Compare the relative stability of various carbonyl compounds.


5. Draw the mechanisms, including transition states and intermediates, and predict the products of electrophilic and nucleophilic aromatic substitution reactions, carbonyl addition/substitution and reduction reactions, carbonyl alpha-C reactions, alcohol oxidation reactions, condensation reactions and saponification.


6. Correlate the results of various organic reactions with predictions from molecular orbital theory.


7. Show the synthetic use of various reagents in functional group transformations.

Evaluation MethodWeighting/Points for EachDetails
Exam100 pointsExam #1
Monday February 4, in class.
There will be two 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).
Exam100 pointsExam #2
Monday March 18, in class.

Exam100 pointsExam #3
Monday May 6, 8:00 am- 11:00 am in 124 Dabney.
There will be two 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.

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).
Quizzes30 pointsTo aid in the learning and further understanding of the material, a series of ten in class quizzes will be administered, approximately every fourth class. The exact date of each quiz will be announced in class, the class meeting before the quiz. These quizzes will be approximately 10-15 minutes in length and will be counted towards the student's final course grade.
Homework30 points
A total of 10 homework (HW} assignments will be posted during the semester. You will be expected to hand in completed HW assignments, and they will count for 30 points of your total grade. HW assignments will be 'coarsely' graded - they will be inspected and assigned a score of 1, 2 or 3, depending on the quality of your work. HW solutions will be posted, and scores will be posted regularly. HW will be due in lecture on Wednesdays and will be handed back in recitation section. Recommended problems from each chapter will be posted. Solutions to the recommended problems will also be posted. You are expected to work these problems to fully master the course material and prepare for the exams.
