Continues the development of the core principles of organic chemistry via the introduction of the study of aromatic systems, the chemistry of the carbonyl group, and the reactions of oxygen, nitrogen and sulfur containing compounds. Nuclear Magnetic Resonance spectroscopy is presented as a powerful tool for structure elucidation. Laboratory work includes the preparation, isolation, purification and identification of organic molecules of relevance to those being discussed in lecture.
