CHEM 151 Fall 2012 Introductory Concepts of Chemistry (Q)

This course provides a general introduction to chemistry for those students who are anticipating professional study in chemistry, in related sciences, or in one of the health professions, as well as for those students who are interested in exploring the fundamental ideas of chemistry as part of their general education. The course presents an overview of chemical concepts, provides the foundation for the further study of organic chemistry, physical chemistry, and biochemistry, and gives special attention to the principles of qualitative and quantitative analysis. The principal topics include chemical bonding, molecular structure, stoichiometry, chemical equilibrium, acid-base reactions, oxidation-reduction reactions, solubility equilibria, and related applications. Laboratory work comprises a system of qualitative analysis and quantitative techniques.
