Organic Chemistry 2

College Science Prerequisites, Course Description and Textbooks

Organic Chemistry 2 (CHEM202) - Prerequisites

High School Diploma or equivalent, and Organic Chemistry 1 or equivalent.

Organic Chemistry 2 (CHEM202) - Course Description

Organic Chemistry 2 requires four weekends to complete. The accelerated organic chemistry classes are held on Saturdays and Sundays from 8:30am to 6:30pm.
(4 Semester Units, includes lab*)

The weekend Organic Chemistry 2 (CHEM202) course further elaborates functional groups with emphasis on alcohols, phenols, ethers, aldehydes, ketones, amides, esters, amines, and carboxylic acids Once the nature and reactivity of these functional groups is understood, the more important biological examples will be stressed and elaborated. Biochemistry, particularly the properties and metabolism of biological macromolecules such as nucleic acids, lipids, and proteins will be introduced.

*If the college or university to which the student intends to transfer Integrated Science Program (ISP) courses requires 5 instead of 4 semester units per portion of a course (either 1 or 2), we offer 1 semester unit independent study courses for each formal course which provide empirically-based studies that enhance, deepen, and further integrate knowledge of the subject by developing different problem-solving skills and conceptual organization than those fostered in formal classroom and laboratory learning.

Nursing students should learn more about the Chemistry for Health Professions class also offered by ISP. The Chemistry for Health Professions introduces pre-nursing students to the fundamental concepts of organic chemistry and biochemistry, and meets the requirement for pre-nursing curriculums.
