Upon completion of this course, the student should be able to:

  • handle air-sensitive materials;       
  • predict structural properties of organic compounds from spectral data;                  
  • identify classes of organic compounds using wet chemical techniques;             
  • oxidize alcohols to ketones and acids;
  • synthesize esters;
  • perform saponifications;
  • set up and perform fermentations and isolate products;
  • prepare fluorescent dyes;
  • synthesize diazonium salts and react them with various substrates;
  • dehydrate alcohols and elucidate products;
  • prepare triphenylmethanol via Grignard reagents;
