A brief but comprehensive survey of key chemical theories and applications in chemistry. Topics includes atomic structures, chemical bonding, chemical reactions, stoichiometry, states of matter, theories of solutions, energy transfer, basic organic and biochemistry. The laboratory focuses on basic laboratory techniques, quantitative applications and some reactions in organic chemistry and biochemistry. This course is designed for students who are non-science majors. This course cannot be used to substitute for CHEM 141, CHEM 201 or CHEM 311. Prerequisites: satisfactory background in high-school mathematics or approval of the instructor.

Central concepts in this second part of the course are energy transfer, spontaneity, and change (thermochemistry, chemical equilibrium, and kinetics.) The laboratory stresses basic laboratory techniques and quantitative applications. Basic skills in mathematics and facility with algebra are required. Concurrent enrollment in calculus is recommended for students who intend to concentrate in chemistry. Prerequisite: Chemistry 141, or its equivalent.

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. Prerequisites: CHEM 201. (This course has a choice of lab sections, see below.)

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.

RKC Seminar

 

2 credits This course focus is placed on describing the chemistry of biochemical molecules including proteins, carbohydrates, lipids, and nucleic acids. A brief overview of each molecule is given with emphasis on its structure, bonds, and reactivity. Recent papers on each molecule are presented and discussed. There are no exams, and performance is evaluated on the basis of seminar participation, assignments, and presentations.

Prerequisites: Chemistry 201 or 202. Biology 301 is a plus, but is not a prerequisite. Approval from the instructor.

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.

Prerequisite: Chemistry 411.
