CHEMISTRY
(CHM)
CHM 099 BASIC CHEMISTRY
3 (3-0)
This course is designed for students with little or no chemistry background.
It does not satisfy any degree requirement, nor is it transferable. Emphasis
is on an introduction of chemical and science vocabulary, as well as chemical
concepts. A few of the quantitative aspects of chemistry will also be covered
in order to prepare the student for success in the next level of chemistry courses.
Prerequisite:
None, MTH 100 strongly recommended
CHM 101 GENERAL, ORGANIC, AND BIOCHEMISTRY
4 (3-3)
This course is intended for non-science/engineering majors and nursing
students. It offers the opportunity to gain a better understanding of the world in
which we live by exploring the principles of chemistry and the molecular basis
of life. This course emphasizes the qualitative understanding of chemical
principles covered in a freshman general chemistry course, with some
application of these principles to quantitatively solving problems. Organic
and biochemistry topics will be integrated
where
applicable.
The
accompanying laboratory offers reinforcement of the lecture topics by providing
hands-on experience in working with chemicals and scientific instrumentation.
Prerequisite:
MTH 103 or test into MTH 104
One year high school chemistry or CHM 099 strongly recommended
CHM 102 GENERAL, ORGANIC, AND BIOCHEMISTRY II
4 (3-3)
This course will apply basic chemical principles learned in CHM 101 to the study
of organic and biochemistry. It will begin with the nomenclature and physical and
chemical properties of organic compounds, and proceed to apply these
principles to understanding the molecular basis of life, including the study of DNA,
enzymes, metabolism, nutrition, body fluids, and xenobiotics. The accompanying
laboratory offers reinforcement of the lecture topics.
Prerequisite:
CHM 101
CHM 151 GENERAL AND INORGANIC CHEMISTRY (FALL)
5 (4-3)
This course provides a foundation for science majors and preprofessional students to understand the properties of matter in terms of its atomic
and molecular constitution. Emphasis is on the qualitative comprehension
of chemical principles and the application of those principles to quantitatively
addressing problems. Topics include chemical reaction types, including acidbase and redox reactions, stoichiometry, atomic
structure,
periodic
relationships, thermochemistry, chemical bonding and intermolecular
forces, molecular geometry and solid structure. The accompanying
laboratory offers reinforcement of the lecture topics and/or introduction of
additional concepts by providing hands-on experience in working with
chemicals and scientific instrumentation.
Prerequisite:
None, CHM 101 or a strong high school Chemistry
background highly recommended.
Co-requisite:
MTH 110
CHM 152 GENERAL AND INORGANIC CHEMISTRY II (SPRING)
5 (4-3)
A continuation of CHM 151. Topics include acid-based laws, phase changes,
solutions, chemical kinetics, equilibrium, and thermodynamics, acid-base
equilibria and buffers, electrochemistry, and nuclear chemistry.
Prerequisite:
CHM 151 (completed with a C or higher)
CHM 201 ORGANIC CHEMISTRY I
4 (3-3)
This course endeavors to explain what is currently known about the basic
properties and reactions of organic matter. The chemistry of carbon
compounds, including their structure, nomenclature, stereochemistry,
preparation, reaction, properties, and analysis, will be introduced on a level
appropriate for science, engineering, and pre=professional students. Reaction
mechanisms will focus on the alkene and alkyne functional groups during
the first semester. The accompanying laboratory offers hands-on experience in
synthesizing, isolating, and analyzing a variety of organic compounds using some
100
of the basic experimental techniques employed by the organic chemist.
Prerequisite:
CHM 151-152 (completed with a C or higher)
CHM 202 ORGANIC CHEMISTRY II
4 (3-3)
Continuation of Chemistry 201. The material covered will include substitution
and elimination reactions, the chemistry of benzene, class I and II carbonyl
chemistry, and an introduction of organometallic chemistry. Emphasis will
be on reactions, multi-step synthesis, theory, and mechanisms. The
accompanying laboratory offers hands-on experience in synthesizing, isolating,
and analyzing a variety of organic compounds using some of the basic
experimental techniques employed by the organic chemist. Theory of mass
spectrometry, IR and NMR will be introduced during the laboratory period.
Prerequisite:
CHM 201 (completed with a C or higher)
