  • 1. Page 1 of 2 Queens College of the City University of New York Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry Basic Organic Chemistry Chem 102.3 Lecture Schedule Fall 2012 See requirements for this course and Chem 103 at the end of this syllabus! Lecture : Wed, Fri 10:50 - 12:05 PM, Rm 101 Remsen Hall Professor William H. Hersh, 109 Remsen Hall Office Hour: Wednesday, 9:30-10:30 AM and by appointment Telephone: 718-997-4144 e-mail: william.hersh@qc.cuny.edu LECTURE TEXT: Fundamentals of General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry, McMurry, Castellion, Ballantine, Hoeger, Peterson, 6 th Edition, Prentice Hall, 2010 (same edition as your Chem 101 text) Recommended: Study Guide and Selected Solutions Manual, McMurry, 6 th Edition Molecular model kit LAB TEXT: Laboratory Experiments for Introduction to General, Organic and Biochemistry, F. Bettelheim and J. Landesberg, 6 th or 7 th Edition, Brooks/Cole, 2007/2010 Grading: 3 Midterm Exams 66% Final Exam (Comprehensive*) 34% Total 100% *The final exam will be the American Chemical Society General-Organic-Biochemistry exam, Organic Part A and B, Biochemistry Part A. There is no study guide for this particular exam, but questions will be similar to those on the midterm exams. Exams will stress lecture material and recitation problems. Bring photo ID to exams. You will not be permitted to use books, molecular models, notes, computers, or calculators during exams. Cell phones are strictly prohibited for class and exams. If you have any questions concerning the grading, see Dr. Hersh within 10 days following the exam. All re-grade requests must be made in writing and attached to the exam; do not under any circumstances write anything on the exam itself. Exams are Xeroxed prior to being returned. There are no make-up exams. Written verification of your reason for missing an exam is required; your grade will be based on the exams you have taken. You will need access to Blackboard for handouts - it is your responsibility to provide a valid e-mail address that you monitor. Announcements will be made via Blackboard and e-mail. APPROXIMATE SCHEDULE AND PROBLEMS. The text contains many problems similar to those that will be given on exams. You should do the problems that appear in the body of the text. Selected answers may be found in the Study Guide; there will not be any graded homework. The following are the Additional Problems at the end of each chapter for which you are responsible, along with approximate scheduled lecture topics and expected topics for each exam. Approximate Schedule and Problems Date Chp Topic Problems Aug. 29 12 Alkanes 12.19-30, 34, 35, 37, 38, 40-42, 44-51, 53, 56a,b, 57,60-63 Sept. 5 13 Alkenes, Alkynes, Aromatics 13.23-27, 30, 33, 35-39, 41-43, 48, 50, 58-61, 66-69, 77-78, 80-82, 86-87, 90

Oct. 10. No classes on Mon. Sept. 3, Mon.-Tues. Sept. 17-18, Tues.-Wed. Sept. 25-26, Mon. Oct 8, Thurs.-Fri. Nov. 22-23. Course Objectives: Students will learn basic structural organic chemistry, including structures and nomenclature of hydrocarbons and compounds containing the most common functional groups including halides, alcohols, thiols and disulfides, amines, carbonyl compounds including aldehydes, ketones, carboxylic acids, esters, and amides, and an introduction to biological molecules including amino acids, proteins, carbohydrates, lipids, and nucleic acids. Stereochemistry will be introduced, and students will learn to draw structures and convey three- dimensional information about structures. Reactions of these compounds will be introduced, but mechanisms of reactions, synthesis, and spectroscopy will not be covered in this course. At the conclusion, students will have a foundation that will allow them to enter a course in basic molecular biochemistry. Assessment: Problem solving ability will be tested using exams; while memorization of naming conventions and reactions will be required, the emphasis will be on understanding structures of organic compounds. Sample problems and answers both in the book and on the course web site will be representative of the material that will be found on exams. Course Requirements: Prerequisites for Chem 102.3: C or better in Chem 101.3 and 101.1, or C or better in Chem 113.4 and 113.1 Pre or corequisite: Chem 102.1 (C or better if prerequisite) Note: a C- in any pre or corequisite will not permit you to take 102.3/102.1! You must earn a C or better in Chem 102.3 and 102.1 to take Chem 103.3 and 103.1

  • 4. Page 2 of 2 Course Objectives: Students will learn basic organic laboratory techniques including isolation and purification of organic compounds, and identification of organic compounds using chromatography and chemical tests; problem solving via understanding the use of the analytical tests is emphasized. Structural organic chemistry, which is a major focus of the lecture part of the course, will be covered in a molecular models session. Students will learn to carry out basic preparations of compounds and mixtures. At the conclusion, students will have a foundation that will allow them to carry out basic organic laboratory procedures, they will know how to keep an organic laboratory notebook, and they will know basic safety procedures including handling of hazardous waste. Assessment: Lab instructors will assess students by means of three short unannounced written quizzes on the procedures to be carried out, by grading of lab notebooks, by collecting laboratory products and assessing them for yield and purity and accuracy of reported results in the student notebook, and by observation of the students during lab, including student technique and adherence to safety rules. Course Requirements: Prerequisites for Chem 102.3: C or better in Chem 101.3 and 101.1, or C or better in Chem 113.4 and 113.1 Pre or corequisite: Chem 102.1 (C or better if prerequisite) Note: a C- in any pre or corequisite will not permit you to take 102.3/102.1! You must earn a C or better in Chem 102.3 and 102.1 to take Chem 103.3 and 103.1
