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:
Dr. Schwartz, Dr. B. Torok, Dr. Zhang, Prof. Cerny
255 Organic Chemistry I Laboratory
(accompanies Chem 251, the lecture component of the course) presents
an introduction to organic laboratory techniques such as extraction,
distillation, and recrystallization. Students taking Chem 255 must
be currently enrolled in Chem 251.

Chem 252 Organic Chemistry II Lecture
Fundamental principles and advanced topics in organic chemistry.
Carbonyl chemistry is covered in particular detail, using principles
of stereochemistry, stereoelectronic theory, and molecular orbital
theory as a foundation. Students learn about strategies in multi-step
organic synthesis and are given an introduction into organometallic
chemistry. (Course offered every semester and summer session II.)

256 Organic Chemistry II 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
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.
Chem 312 Physical Chemistry
This is an introductory course in chemical thermodynamics, kinetic
theory and classical chemical kinetics. Topics include the First,
Second, and Third Laws of Thermodynamics with special application
to chemical transformations. Phase equilibria and the phase rule
are discussed in detail. A discussion of chemical kinetics includes
rate laws, order, molecularity, and activation parameters. (Course
offered in the Spring only.)
Prerequisite: CHEM 311.
Chem 313 Analytical Chemistry Laboratory
This course provides practical laboratory experience with a variety
of analytical methods. These include titrimetric, spectrophotometric,
conductometric, potentiometric and electrolytic methods as well
as ion exchange and solvent extraction separations. (Course offered
in the Fall only.)
CHEM 118, MATH 140 and PHYSIC 113 and co-req: CHEM 311.
