Course Descriptions

CHEM 1100 (Introductory Chemistry)

This one-semester course covers some basic concepts and applications of chemistry for the non- science majors. There is no laboratory component.

CHEM 1211 & CHEM 1211L (Principles of Chemistry I)

This first course in a two-semester sequence covers the fundamental principles and applications of chemistry for science majors. Topics include composition of matter, stoichiometry, periodic relations, and nomenclature.

CHEM 1212 & CHEM 1212L (Principles of Chemistry II)

This second course in a two-semester sequence covers the fundamental principles and applications of chemistry for science majors.

CHEM 2211K (Organic Chemistry I)

This course is the first in a two semester sequence. Topics include a study of bonding in and reactions of saturated and unsaturated hydrocarbons, nucleophilic substitutions and elimination reaction mechanisms, free radical reactions, and stereochemistry. Laboratory exercises are required as part of this course.

CHEM 2212K (Organic Chemistry II)

This course is a continuation of CHEM 2211. Topics include aromaticity, electrophilic substitution mechanisms, functional group reactions including alcohols, phenols, ethers, aldehydes, ketones, carboxylic acids, and amines. Laboratory exercises are required as part of this course.
