Welcome to Dr. Shaughnessy's CH 231 homepage. This site will serve as a repository for all class materials, announcements, and a source of resources to help you succeed in organic chemistry. I would encourage you to use this site, as many students have found it to be a valuable resource.
The goals for CH 231 include understanding the structure of common organic molecules, learning about spectroscopic methods for determining organic structure, and learning some of the common reactions of organic molecules. Organic chemistry provides an important intellectual base for students in chemistry,chemical engineering, biology, and pre-health majors. Even if you never use the concepts learned in organic chemistry beyond this class, which is unlikely if you pursue a degree in chemistry, chemical engineering, or biology, the problem solving skills learned in organic chemistry will serve you throughout your academic career and beyond.
