CHEM 1021: Organic Chemistry II Lecture Course Overview
CHEM 1021, Organic Chemistry II, is a three-credit, lecture only, online organic chemistry course. Since this is the second of two semesters in this series, it will be assumed that the student taking this course has a good understanding of the different functional groups in organic chemistry and of the different reactions these functional groups undergo. The goal of this course is to give the student an introduction to the organic chemistry of important biological pathways that the student will encounter in his/her professional studies. The subjects include biochemistry, molecular genetics, and metabolism.
CHEM 1021L: Organic Chemistry II Lab Course Overview
CHEM 1021L is a one-credit, lab only, online organic chemistry course. Since this is the second of two semesters in this series, it will be assumed that the student taking this course has a good understanding of the different functional groups in organic chemistry and of the different reactions these functional groups undergo. The goal of this course is to introduce the student to important laboratory techniques and concepts covered on most professional entrance exams. These include separation and purification techniques and an introduction to spectroscopy.
Lecture Course Outcomes
- Apply the theories of various spectroscopic (NMR, IR, and MS) techniques, concepts.
- Interpret various spectra to identify unknown compounds.
- Evaluate separation and purification techniques that are important to the professional world that include distillation, filtration, extractions, chromatography, recrystallization, and sublimation for various organic compounds.
Lab Course Outcomes
- Ask a question or define a problem that can be tested.
- Hypothesize possible result(s).
- Plan and/or conduct an investigation individually and/or collaboratively to produce data to serve as the basis for evidence.
- Analyze data using tools, technologies, and/or models (i.e. computational, mathematical, graphical, etc.) in order to make valid and reliable scientific claims or determine an optimal design solution.
- Communicate the results by constructing an explanation based on multiple pieces of valid and reliable evidence obtained from a variety of sources (including students’ own investigations, models, theories, simulations, peer review) and the assumption that theories and laws that describe the natural world operate today as they did in the past and will continue to do so in the future.
- Apply scientific ideas, principles, and/or evidence gained from various experiments, as well as other observations and/or research, to provide an explanation of phenomena and solve design problems, taking into account possible unanticipated effects.
- One semester of college-level organic chemistry (CHEM 1020/ CHEM 1020L)
* Please note these prerequisites are highly suggested and support course preparedness and success. We recommend having completed the listed prerequisites before enrolling and within the past seven years.
How do exams work?
All exams are taken online. Major exams are required to be proctored online through ProctorU. For instructions on how to take your exams online, visit UNE Online’s ProctorU site. Please note exams must also be proctored with the UNE-approved external webcam.
How do labs work?
For CHEM 1021L, most of the weeks include a laboratory assignment. You will perform all laboratory assignments in a non-laboratory setting, such as your kitchen. You will also complete one written lab report, and participate in lab discussions and reflections. There will also be a final lab exam at the end of the course.

Complete at Your Own Pace within 16 weeks
24/7 Online Registration
Courses Typically Begin Every Two to Three Weeks
Working at the pace typical for a four-semester hour course, the average student will complete this online course in approximately 16 weeks. Many students have elected an online course for the sake of flexibility. Since the course is self-paced, you may be able to complete the course in less than 16 weeks.
You may enroll for a course at anytime through our self-service registration portal. You will need to enable Flash in your browser first (here are step-by-step instructions). Payment is needed in full at the time of registration.
You must be registered for your class by 12:00 noon EST on the Monday before the class starts. Your official start date is the date that the course opens and you will have 16 weeks from that date to complete your course.
