CHEM 314 PRINCIPLES of ORGANIC CHEMISTRY

Spring 2017

DESCRIPTION: Chm 314 is a 3.0 credit lecture organic chemistry course. Basic
principles and nomenclature of carbon compounds are studied. Pre-
req: CHM123 or equiv.

OBJECTIVES: • Lewis structures, formal charge, resonance, hybridization
• Nomenclature of alkanes, alkenes, alkynes, haloalkanes
• Stereochemistry and isomeric relationships
• Free-radical, substitution, addition and elimination reactions
• Kinetics and reaction mechanisms
• Synthesis, separation, and characterization of org. cmpds. (lab)

INSTRUCTOR: Dr. Floyd Klavetter; flklavetter@cpp.edu; (909) 869-3677
Office hours: Tu/Th 2:30 – 4:00 PM and W 11:00 AM – noon,
Bldg 8, Rm 314. Or just come on by and I’ll help you if I’m not
busy.

TEXTBOOK: Organic Chemistry, L. G. Wade, Jr., 8th Ed. [Prentice Hall Pub., NJ,
2010] ISBN: 0-321-76841-8 (text). Solution Manual is also
available. Both text & manual are on reserve in campus library.
7th/9th Ed. also OK.

GRADING: The course grade is based upon 670 points:

Quizzes: 6 * 20 = 120 pts
Exams (2): 2 * 150 = 300 pts
Final Exam: 250 pts
Course Total 670 pts

Homework: HW assignments will not be collected, but text
reading and completing in-text problems for each of the assigned
chapters (see LECTURE SCHEDULE) will prepare you for the
quizzes and exams. Once you have completed a chapter, the end-
of-chapter problems will serve as a sort of practice exam.

Exams: Exams will be based upon assigned text reading, in-class
notes, and (important) assigned homework problems.

Course Grade: A 85 + %
B 75 – 84.9 %
C 65 – 74.9 %
D 55 – 64.9 %

+/- grades will be assigned to the upper/lower third of each range.
