Class Details

Class of 2027 ONLY (Class of 2024, 2025, 2026 see CHEM 256). This course treats an array of topics in modern chemistry, emphasizing broad concepts that connect and weave through the various subdisciplines of the field–biochemistry, inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, and physical chemistry. It provides the necessary background in chemical science for students who are planning advanced study or a career in chemistry, biological science, geoscience, environmental science, or a health profession. Topics include coordination complexes, thermodynamics, electrochemistry, and kinetics. Laboratory sections will give students hands-on experience involving synthesis, characterization, and reactivity studies of coordination and organic complexes; spectroscopic analyses; thermodynamics; electrochemistry; and kinetics. Students will hone their skills in the presentation of results through written reports and worksheets.
