Lab: Tu 1:30 pm 4:00 pm HEG 204

OR: Wed 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm HEG 204

An introduction to the composition, structure, and properties of matter. The first semester covers stoichiometry, atomic structure, periodic trends, bonding and molecular geometry, and the behavior of gases, liquids, and solids. The laboratory stresses basic techniques and quantitative applications. Basic algebra skills are required. Concurrent enrollment in calculus is recommended for students who intend to go on in chemistry.

Organic Chemistry I

Professor

Kim Touchette

Schedule

Tu Th 10:30 am - 12:30 pm HEG 201

Lab: Tu 1:30 pm - 5:30 pm ROSE 205

OR: Th 1:30 pm - 5:30 pm ROSE 205

Structure and reactions of specific types of organic compounds will be studied, and interrelationships will be developed, to provide an integrated understanding of organic chemistry. General principles and reaction mechanisms will be emphasized, but the accumulation and utilization of factual material will also be expected. The laboratory will be coordinated with classroom topics and should provide direct experience with many reactions and concepts. The lab is also intended to develop familiarity with experimental design, techniques, and instrumental methods such as chromatography and spectroscopy.

Prerequisite: Chemistry 101‑102.

Title

Theoretical Organic Chemistry

Professor

Hilton Weiss

Schedule

TBA

An introduction to the theory and use of molecular orbital

calculations. Huckel calculations will be stressed and results will be applied to study the structure and reactivity of organic molecules. Particular attention will be directed to orbital symmetry and frontier orbital theory. Depending upon student interests, advanced calculations may also be considered. Other advanced topics may include electronic spectroscopy, photochemistry, and molecular mechanics.

Prerequisites: Chemistry 201-202, Physics 101-102.

CHEM 411 Q course

Title

Physical Chemistry

Professor

Simeen Sattar

Schedule

Tu Th 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm ROSE 113

This course stresses a modern, molecular approach to the subject. The first semester begins with a study of model quantum mechanical systems and culminates in the application of the model systems to atomic and molecular structure and spectra. Selected experiments illustrate these topics. Molecular modeling software is used to go beyond consideration of prototypical systems.

Prerequisites: Chemistry 101-102, Physics 101-102, Mathematics 111 and 114.
