A one-semester course in the fundamental principles of organic chemistry. Preparation, reactions, and physical properties of alkanes, cycloalkanes, alcohols, alkyl halides, aromatic compounds, aldehydes, ketones, organic acids, acid derivatives, and amines. Credit is not allowed for both CH 220 and CH 221.

There are two organic chemistry tracks in the Chemistry Department.  CH 220 is a terminal one semester course, whereas CH 221 and CH 223 comprise a two semester sequence.  CH 220 is currently a 4 credit hour course where students have 3 contact hours in lecture and 3 contact hours in the laboratory.  CH 221 and CH 223 are each 3 credit hour lecture courses, with corequisite laboratory courses (CH 222 and CH 224 respectively).  Over the years, the laboratory portion of CH 220 has evolved to become virtually identical to CH 222.  The experiments are designed to explore the properties and reactivity of organic materials, and are not tied in any sequential fashion to the content in the lecture course. 


In this course action, we propose to separate the lecture and laboratory portions of CH 220.  The revised CH 220 would become a 3 credit hour lecture course, and would have CH 222 as a corequisite.  This will be beneficial to the department and to students.  We have had issues in recent semesters with fluctuating enrollments in CH 220, and have been capped by the number of lab sections designated for CH 220.  Having a larger pool of laboratory sections available for CH 220 and CH 221 will help meet demand in those courses while giving students greater flexibility in scheduling their courses.
