CH 406 Advanced Organic Chemistry


This course is advanced study of selected topics not covered in the introductory course, including: Huckle Molecular Orbital Theory; correlation of structure and activity by linear free energy relationships, acidity functions and Bronsted Catalysis Law; symmetry and stereochemistry; pericyclic, electrocylic and sigmatropic reactions; kinetics and kinetic isotope effects; and application of spectroscopic techniques. Laboratory component involves individual multistep syntheses and molecular modeling projects.

Three class hours and four laboratory hours weekly.

Prerequisite: CH 202 and CH 203 ; CH 301 and CH 302 highly recommended.
