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. Class size: 30

SCI

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.Class size: 20

Cross-listed: BiologyThis course is an introduction to biochemistry with an emphasis on the study of biomolecules that are central to the function of living systems. Topics of study are protein and nucleic acid structure/function/regulation, mechanism/kinetics of enzymes and a brief introduction to metabolism. The study of biochemistry is at the interface of chemistry and biology. A strong foundation in introductory biology and organic chemistry is necessary. The laboratory component consists of multi-week, project-based experiments covering relevant topics discussed in lecture and are designed to mimic a studentís experience in a research laboratory. Prerequisites: Biology 141 and Chemistry 201-202.Class size: 16

2 credits The goal of this course will be to integrate material from inorganic and organic chemistry to provide a basis for understanding the rich chemistry of the metal-carbon bond.The material will consist mainly of an examination of various organometallic reaction mechanisms, including substitution, oxidative addition, reductive elimination, and insertion, combined with a survey of the structure and reactivity of the important types of organometallic ligands.Special topics such as organometallic photochemistry, catalysis, and the use of organometallic reagents in organic synthesis will also be covered.
