CHM 142 L - General, Organic, and Biochemistry II Laboratory
A continuation of CHM 141L General, Organic, and Biochemistry Laboratory I. Laboratory emphasizing organic and biochemical reactions which substantiate classroom lectures.
Prerequisites: CHM 141 General, Organic, and Biochemistry I and CHM 141L General, Organic, and Biochemistry I Laboratory
Corequisite: CHM 142 General, Organic, and Biochemistry II
3 Laboratory Hours
Learning Outcomes of the Course:
Upon successful completion of this course the student will be able to:
1. Understand the basic differences between organic and inorganic compounds.
2. Complete basic organic chemical equations of the main organic chemical functional groups based on laboratory observations.
3. Determine the formulas and IUPAC names of simple organic compounds based on models.
4. Prepare aspirin and chemically compare the students aspirin to commercial aspirin.
5. Prepare polymers and compare their strength and chemical properties to commercial polymers.
6. Understand the significance of steroeisomers and their role in biochemistry based on models.
7. Understand the structures and basic organic chemical reactions of carbohydrates, lipids, soaps, and proteins.
Methods of Assessing Outcomes:
The expected learning outcomes will be assessed through the use of laboratory reports and quizzes.
