10:30 - 12:00 pm

RKC 103

SCI

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. This course has lab options, see below. Students register for lab separately.

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 a choice of lab sections, see below.)

Advanced lab concepts and techniques will be introduced and studied.  Multi-step organic and organometallic synthesis will cover a solid portion of the course. Air and moisture sensitive techniques will be explored.  We will also cover many analytical, physical, inorganic, and organic chemistry techniques and applications, as necessary. Weekly assignments, tests, presentations, and lab reports will be the basis for evaluation for the course.
