CHEM 58 Honors Organic Chemistry

The second term of a two-term introduction to the chemistry of carbon compounds intended for students planning a chemistry major or career of research in a chemically-related science, including medical science. The lectures deal with the preparation, properties, and reactions of most of the important classes of organic compounds. There is considerable emphasis on reaction mechanisms and some attention is given to naturally occurring substances of biological importance. Topics are covered in greater depth, both in lecture and in the textbook, than in the CHEM 51-52 sequence. Building on the experimental techniques and instrumental methods introduced in CHEM 57, the laboratory work in CHEM 58 involves a multi-step synthesis of an important chemical target molecule, emphasizing how synthetic organic chemistry is carried out and reported in a research setting. Enrollment in CHEM 57-58 is limited.


CHEM 57 (or CHEM 51 with permission of instructor) is a prerequisite to CHEM 58. Supplemental course fee required.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
