CHM 2211: Organic Chemistry II
CHM 2211 is a continuation of the two-semester Organic Chemistry curriculum at USF focuses on functional group reactivity, reaction mechanisms, and organic synthesis. Organic chemistry is a fascinating and indispensable area of study, and is central to such fields as medicine, materials science, and agriculture, to name a few. A mastery of organic chemistry is thus a crucial step toward a number of career objectives. More importantly, organic chemistry directly impacts our everyday lives and one of the objectives of this course is to demonstrate this relevance.
CHM 6263: Adv. Organic Chem.: Physical Organic
The objective of CHM 6263 is to explore advanced topics in organic chemistry and to take an in-depth look at the principles behind the reactivity and selectivity of various chemical transformations. Particular attention is paid to conformational effects, stereoelectronic effects, frontier molecular orbitals, and the kinetics/thermodynamics of organic reactions. Our overall goal is to answer the question “Why?”, as we explore some interesting observations in organic chemistry.
