Course Description:
Application of principles learned in CH317 to members of each homologous series. Importance of organic compounds in our daily lives. Introduction to biorganic chemistry (amino acids, nuclear bases, carbohydrates, lipids). Prerequisite: CH317. Corequisite: CH318L. 3:0:3

Learning Outcomes:
  Core Learning Outcomes

  1. Apply spectroscopic analysis (NMR, UV-Vis, IR, GC-MS etc) to organic compounds.
  2. Name conjugated systems, phenols and the following homologous series: aromatic, aldehydes and ketones, carboxylic acids and its derivatives, amines.
  3. Explain and predict the synthesis, properties, reactions and applications of the above-mentioned classes of compounds.
  4. Integrate and apply topics in CH317 and CH 318: nomenclature, synthesis and reactions, synthesis and reactions, to biological compounds, e.g. carbohydrates, proteins, and lipids.


Core Assessment:

This will be a final exam worth 20-25% of the final grade.  It will have the following:

  • contain questions on 70-90% of the core learning objectives,
  • have some short answer questions,
  • assess terminology taught in the course as per learning objectives,
  • some element of compare and contrast of concepts covered in the learning objectives,
  • 30-50% of the exam will assess the synthetic processes as covered in the learning objectives,
  • 15-20% of the exam will assess the nomenclature covered in the learning objectives, and
  • 10-20% of the exam will be on spectroscopic analysis.

Class Assessment:
Course Outline
Review Chapters 1-9.
Begin with Chapter 10 and continue to chapter 25 (skip 22). See me for assigned problems for each chapter.
You are to read the chapters and write a summery on what you read. The minimum is one page double spaced typed (1 page single spaced hand written) for each 10 pages of text. Include important equations.
Do the assigned problems/questions.
You can submit up to three assignments per week up to 14 July. Then the maximum is two assignments per calendar week.

Literature Project (see below)
Linda Hall Library is an excellent resource for material. http://leonardo.lindahall.org Leonardo will assist you in your search.

Measure of assessment: Final, paper, homework, Chapter outlines

GRADING PLAN: This section is where you list your course grading plan(s) for assessment measures. Your earned final grade is bases on you performance on three examinations, a comprehensive final examination, homework, and your performance in the laboratory no more stringent than according to the following:

Homework (15x25=) 375 points A 1021 -1200 points
Chapter outlines (15x25=) 375 B 888 -1020
Final 240 C 744 - 887
Lit. Project 250 D 650 - 886
TOTAL 1240 points F <650

Course Topic/Dates/Assignments:

Instructions for the Paper

 

                Examples of topics for the term paper are listed below. If you prefer to write the term paper on different subjects (related to the course, of course), you should consult with the instructor for approval. Please inform the instructor about your selection as early as possible. An outline of the paper (one page) with at least three references and the copies of the abstract for research articles, or copies of relevant pages for books is due on 23 July 2007.

 

                The format of the paper can be decided by the student. However, it should include the following aspects:

 

·         Significance of the problem

·         Principle of organic chemodynamics (e.g., mechanisms, governing equations / reactions, predicting models, etc.)

·         Applications

·         Weakness in the current understanding of the problem

·         Future directions in understanding and/or modeling of the problem

 

The paper should be about 20 pages (double space, font 12, 1 inch margins), including up to 5 figures and/or tables. (These are not counted as pages.  If embedded in the text, they should be of normal size – just large enough to read, not large enough to take up an enormous amount of space.  Eight to ten references (preferably later than 1998) should be adequate. In order to obtain necessary information, you should make a full use out of our library systems. Consult with a librarian for guidance.  Linda Hall is down the road. 

Academic Honesty:
Academic integrity is the foundation of the academic community. Because each student has the primary responsibility for being academically honest, students are advised to read and understand all sections of this policy relating to standards of conduct and academic life.   Park University 2007-2008 Undergraduate Catalog Page 85-86

Plagiarism:
Plagiarism involves the use of quotations without quotation marks, the use of quotations without indication of the source, the use of another's idea without acknowledging the source, the submission of a paper, laboratory report, project, or class assignment (any portion of such) prepared by another person, or incorrect paraphrasing. Park University 2007-2008 Undergraduate Catalog Page 85

Attendance Policy:
Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and to report absences via the online attendance reporting system.

  1. The instructor may excuse absences for valid reasons, but missed work must be made up within the semester/term of enrollment.
  2. Work missed through unexcused absences must also be made up within the semester/term of enrollment.
  3. Work missed through unexcused absences must also be made up within the semester/term of enrollment, but unexcused absences may carry further penalties.
  4. In the event of two consecutive weeks of unexcused absences in a semester/term of enrollment, the student will be administratively withdrawn, resulting in a grade of "F".
  5. A "Contract for Incomplete" will not be issued to a student who has unexcused or excessive absences recorded for a course.
  6. Students receiving Military Tuition Assistance or Veterans Administration educational benefits must not exceed three unexcused absences in the semester/term of enrollment. Excessive absences will be reported to the appropriate agency and may result in a monetary penalty to the student.
  7. Report of a "F" grade (attendance or academic) resulting from excessive absence for those students who are receiving financial assistance from agencies not mentioned in item 5 above will be reported to the appropriate agency.
