Chemistry Course Information

 

CHEMISTRY

 

CHM 104 Introduction to Inorganic Chemistry 4 Prerequisite: MTH 098

This is a survey course of general chemistry for students who do not intend to major in science or engineering and may not be substituted for CHM 111. Lecture will emphasize the facts, principles, and theories of general chemistry including math operations, matter and energy, atomic structure, symbols and formulas, nomenclature, the periodic table, bonding concepts, equations, reactions, sto­ichiometry, gas laws, phases of matter, solutions, pH, and equilibrium reactions. Laboratory is required.

 

CHM 111 College Chemistry I                                      4

      Prerequisite: MTH 112 or equivalent math placement score

This is the first course in a two-semester sequence designed for the science or the engineering major who is expected to have a strong background in mathematics. Topics in this course include meas­urement, nomenclature, stoichiometry, atomic structure, equations and reactions, basic concepts of thermochemistry, chemical and physical prop­erties, bonding, molecular structure, gas laws, kinetic-molecular theory, condensed matter, solu­tions, colloids, and some descriptive chemistry topics. Laboratory is required.

 

CHM 112 College Chemistry II                                          4 Prerequisite: CHM 111

This is the second course in a two-semester sequence designed primarily for the science and engineering student who is expected to have a strong background in mathematics. Topics in this course include chemical kinetics, chemical equi­libria, acids and bases, ionic equilibria of weak electrolytes, solubility product principle, chemical thermodynamics, electrochemistry, oxidation-reduction, nuclear chemistry, an introduction to organic chemistry and biochemistry, atmospheric chemistry, and selected topics in descriptive chemistry including the metals, nonmetals, semi-metals, coordination compounds, transition com­pounds, and post-transition compounds. Laboratory is required.

 

CHM 221 Organic Chemistry I                                           4 Prerequisite: CHM 112

This is the first course in a two-semester sequence. Topics in this course include nomenclature, struc­ture, physical and chemical properties, synthesis, and typical reactions for aliphatic, alicyclic, and aromatic compounds with special emphasis on reaction mechanisms, spectroscopy and stereo-chemistry. Laboratory is required and will include the synthesis and confirmation of representative organic compounds with emphasis on basic tech­niques.

 

CHM 222 Organic Chemistry II                                          4 Prerequisite: CHM 221

This is the second course in a two-semester sequence. Topics in this course include nomencla­ture, structure, physical and chemical properties, synthesis and typical reactions for aliphatic, ali­cyclic, aromatic, and biological compounds, poly­mers and their derivatives, with special emphasis on reaction mechanisms, spectroscopy, and stere­ochemistry. Laboratory is required and will include the synthesis and conformation of repre­sentative organic compounds with emphasis on basic techniques.
