Basic Principles of Chemistry

Professor

Simeen Sattar

Schedule

Tu Th    10:30 am – 12:30 pm   HEGEMAN 102

Lab A:  Tu     1:30 pm -  4:00 pm  HEGEMAN 204

Lab B:  Wed  1:30 pm -  4:00 pm  HEGEMAN 204 

An introduction to the composition, structure, and properties of matter. Central concepts in the second semester are energy transfer, spontaneity, and change (thermochemistry, chemical equilibrium, and kinetics). The laboratory stresses basic techniques and quantitative applications of topics discussed in class. Concurrent enrollment in calculus is recommended for students who intend to go on in chemistry.

Prerequisite: Chemistry 101

Organic Chemistry II

Professor

Kim Touchette

Schedule

Tu Th       10:30 am – 12:30 pm    HEGEMAN 201

Lab A:   Mon 1:30 pm -  5:30 pm   ROSE 205

Lab B:    Tu   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

Title

Bio-Organic Chemistry

Professor

Hilton Weiss

Schedule

Tu Th            10:30 am - 12:30 pm     ROSE 113

Application of the mechanistic theories of organic chemistry to the reactions found in biological systems. General reaction types are studied by analogous “model systems”, and the extrapolation of these reactions to biological systems is developed. Experimental results with specific enzymes are used to support postulated mechanisms and to illuminate enzymatic strategies for rate optimization and product control. Some time is spent in analyzing the design of metabolic pathways that use common enzymatic reactions.

Prerequisites: Biology 101; Chemistry 202 with grade B or better.

Advanced Inorganic Chemistry

Professor

Craig Anderson

Schedule

Mon   3:00 pm -  5:00 pm HEGEMAN 300 

Wed   2:30 pm -  4:30 pm HEGEMAN 300

Lab: Wed       9:00 am -  1:00 pm       ROSE 205 

An introduction to the chemistry of the elements, the class places emphasis on the classification of the properties and reactivity of the elements by chemical periodicity, structure, and bonding. Topics in modern inorganic chemistry to be covered include: coordination chemistry of the transition metals, organometallic chemistry, and symmetry.  Laboratory work will include synthetic and instrumental techniques that apply to inorganic and organometallic chemistry.

Prerequisite: Chemistry 201-202, and either Chemistry 301 or 411.

Simeen Sattar

Schedule

Mon Wed       10:30 am - 12:30 pm     ROSE 113

Lab:  Fr           1:30 pm -  5:00 pm      . 

This course continues a modern, molecular approach to Physical Chemistry.  Statistical mechanics is developed as the link between quantum chemistry (discussed in Chemistry 411) and equilibrium thermodynamics and chemical kinetics. Carefully chosen experiments illustrate these topics.
