The Chemistry Department will not offer undergraduate labs Chem 101L, 241L, and 262L during summer 2021 because of on going essential renovations to those physical spaces. A special section of Chem 102L (online) will be offered during summer session II. Students who take a course in summer and need the co-requisite lab should register for a lab section in fall 2021.

First Session, 2021

CHEM 101 General Descriptive Chemistry I (3)

Prerequisite, MATH 110. The first course in a two-semester sequence. See also CHEM 102. Atomic and molecular structure, stoichiometry and conservation of mass, thermochemical changes, and conservation of energy. REMOTE ONLY-SYNCHRONOUS.

CHEM 102 General Descriptive Chemistry II (3)

Prerequisites, CHEM 101 and 101L. C- or better required in CHEM 101. The course is the second in a two-semester sequence. See also CHEM 101. Gases, intermolecular forces, solutions, reaction rates, chemical equilibria including acid-base chemistry, thermochemistry, electrochemistry. Available as REMOTE ONLY-SYNCHRONOUS and IN-PERSON AND REMOTE LEARNERS.

CHEM 241 Modern Analytical Methods for Separation and Characterization (2)

Prerequisite, CHEM 102 or 102H. C- or better required in prerequisite. Analytical separations, chromatographic methods, spectrophotometry, acid-base equilibria and titrations, fundamentals of electrochemistry. Available as REMOTE ONLY-SYNCHRONOUS and IN-PERSON ON-CAMPUS.

CHEM 261 Introduction to Organic Chemistry I (3)

Prerequisite, CHEM 102 or 102H. C- or better required in prerequisite. Molecular structure and its determination by modern physical methods, correlation between structure and reactivity and the theoretical basis for these relationships, classification of reaction types exhibited by organic molecules using as examples molecules of biological importance. REMOTE ONLY-SYNCHRONOUS.

Chem 262 Introduction to Organic Chemistry II (3)

Prerequisite, CHEM 261 or 261H. C- or better required in prerequisite. CHEM 262 is the second of a two-semester sequence on organic chemistry. Chemistry 262 uses organic chemistry to promote a fundamental understanding of concepts in chemistry and science. The material covered in this class expands upon the content covered in CHEM 261 and introduces the reactivity of new functional groups and biomolecules. REMOTE ONLY-SYNCHRONOUS.

CHEM 430 Introduction to Biological Chemistry (3)

Prerequisites, BIOL 101, CHEM 262 or 262H. The study of cellular processes including catalysts, metabolism, bioenergetics, and biochemical genetics. The structure and function of biological macromolecules involved in these processes is emphasized. REMOTE ONLY-SYNCHRONOUS.

Second Session, 2021

CHEM 102 General Descriptive Chemistry II (3)

Prerequisites, CHEM 101 and 101L. C- or better required in CHEM 101. The course is the second in a two-semester sequence. See also CHEM 101. Gases, intermolecular forces, solutions, reaction rates, chemical equilibria including acid-base chemistry, thermochemistry, electrochemistry. IN-PERSON AND REMOTE LEARNERS.

CHEM 102L Quantitative Chemistry Laboratory II

ONLINE. Prerequisite, 101L. In CHEM 102L, learners will build on analytical skills developed in CHEM 101L to study reaction kinetics, chemical equilibria, acid/base titrations, gas laws and colligative properties of solutions. In this course, learners will: translate chemical concepts through experimental data, analyze, interpret and report data, learn to identify and analyze experimental error, build teamwork skills by working with a lab partner via Zoom and develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills. REMOTE ONLY-SYNCHRONOUS.

CHEM 262 Introduction to Organic Chemistry II (3)

Prerequisite, CHEM 261 or 261H. C- or better required in prerequisite. Continuation of CHEM 261, with particular emphasis on the chemical properties of organic molecules of biological importance. REMOTE ONLY-SYNCHRONOUS.
