(919) 843-7827 | (919) 843-7826

No lab sections of undergraduate Chemistry courses will be offered in summer 2020 because of essential renovations to those physical spaces in May-August. Students who take a course in summer and need the co-requisite lab should register for a lab section in fall 2020.

First Session, 2020

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.

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.

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.

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.

CHEM 430 Introduction to Biological Chemistry (BIOL 430) (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.
