BMSC.3420 Organic Structures and Reactions II

Id: 040464 Credits Min: 3 Credits Max: 3


This course presents fundamental principles of Organic Chemistry and chemical reactions not covered in Organic Structures and Reactions I, with continued emphasis on concepts most relevant to the health professions. More detailed structure-stability-reactivity relationships, stereochemical principles, and reaction mechanisms are presented, including many relevant examples of the applications of Organic Chemistry in drug design and synthesis, as well as its central role on metabolism and pharmacology. The course reviews and reinforces the sue of spectral techniques for the qualitative analysis of organic compounds and elucidation of chemical structures, with emphasis on infrared spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy.


BMSC.2420 Organic Structures and Reactions I, and BMSC.2440 Organic Structures and Reactions Laboratory I, and Co-req: BMSC.3440 Organic Structures and Reactions Laboratory II.
