Students study the structure and reactions of specific types of organic compounds and develop interrelationships that provide an integrated understanding of organic chemistry. The course emphasizes general principles and reaction mechanisms, but students are also expected to accumulate and utilize factual material. The laboratory is coordinated with classroom topics and should provide direct experience with many reactions and concepts. The laboratory is also intended to develop familiarity with experiment design, experimental techniques, and instrumental methods such as chromatography and spectroscopy. This course has three lab options. See above.

This course surveys the field of analytical chemistry with emphasis on the basic principle of solution equilibria. Quantitative treatment of solubility, acidity, and oxidation potential provide the background for the understanding of gravimetric and volumetric techniques. Modern methods of instrumental analysis are studied and integrated into the laboratory work. Prerequisite: Chemistry 141-142, and 201-202.

2 credits An introduction to the design and development of organic syntheses.  The starting point is a predictable design of organic structures based on the use of carbanions and other modern reactions.  The versatility of these methods is discussed, using novel ways to apply these reactions to generate elusive structures.  Variations in reactivity are discussed to illustrate the differential reactivity of similar functional groups and how these differences may be used in selectivity.  Fairly complicated syntheses are evaluated to appreciate new ideas and approaches to synthesis.  Recent papers in organic synthesis are presented by the professor, students, and visiting speakers from industry and academia. Prerequisite: Chemistry 202

This course stresses a modern, molecular approach to the subject of physical chemistry. 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. Students analyze their data with particular emphasis on the way in which error in fundamental measurements propagates through to error in final results. Molecular modeling software is used to go beyond consideration of prototypical systems. Prerequisites: Chemistry 141 - 142, Physics 141- 142, and Mathematics 141 142. Strongly recommended: Mathematics 212.
