Chem 251 Organic Chemistry I Lecture
Introduction to the structure and synthesis of organic molecules, the reactions of the principal functional groups, and the basis theory of organic chemistry. The prediction of reaction products using reaction mechanisms, and the determination of organic structure using spectroscopy. The underlying role of stereochemistry in organic structure and reactions will be emphasized. (Course offered every semester and summer session I.)
Prerequisites: CHEM 116 and 118 or CHEM 104, and co-req or pre-req: CHEM 255.
Dr. Schwartz, Dr. B. Torok, Dr. Zhang, Prof. Cerny

Chem 256 Organic Chemistry II Laboratory

Laboratory (accompanies Chem 252, the lecture component of the course) presents an introduction to organic synthesis. Students taking Chem 256 must be currently enrolled in Chem 252.
Prerequisites: CHEM 255 or CHEM 253 and co-req: CHEM 252.


Chem 311 Analytical Chemistry

This course is an introduction to analytical and solution chemistry. Topics include solubility, acid-base, redox and complexation equilibria and ionic activity coefficients with applications to gravimetric, titrimetric, chelometric, electrolytic and spectrophotometric methods of analysis. Equilibrium principles are applied to a variety of separation techniques as well. (Course offered in the Fall only.)
Prerequisites: CHEM 116 and MATH 140 and PHYSIC 113.
