CHEM 52 Organic Chemistry

The second term of a two-term introduction to the chemistry of carbon compounds. The lectures deal with the preparation, properties, and reactions of most of the important classes of organic compounds. There is considerable emphasis upon reaction mechanisms and some attention is given to naturally occurring substances of biological importance. The laboratory work will introduce the student to experimental techniques and instrumental methods including several types of chromatography and spectroscopy, organic synthesis, and the systematic identification of organic compounds.


CHEM 6 (or CHEM 10). CHEM 51 (or CHEM 57 with permission of instructor) is a prerequisite to CHEM 52. Supplemental course fee required.

Degree Requirement Attributes


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.
