CHEM 29N: Chemistry in the Kitchen

Preference to Freshmen. This course examines the chemistry relevant to food and drink preparation, both in homes and in restaurants, which makes what we consume more pleasurable. Good cooking is more often considered an art rather than a science, but a small bit of understanding goes a long way to make the preparation and consumption of food and drink more enjoyable. The intention is to have demonstrations and tastings as a part of every class meeting. We will examine some rather familiar items in this course: eggs, dairy products, meats, breads, vegetables, pastries, and carbonated beverages. We shall playfully explore the chemistry that turns food into meals. A high-school chemistry background is assumed; bring to class a good appetite and a healthy curiosity.
Terms: Aut, Win | Units: 3 | UG Reqs: WAY-SMA

Terms: Aut, Win, Spr, Sum | Units: 1-2 | Repeatable 4 times (up to 8 units total)

CHEM 111: Exploring Chemical Research at Stanford

Preference to freshmen and sophomores. Department faculty describe their cutting-edge research and its applications.
Terms: Win | Units: 1

CHEM 132: Synthesis Laboratory

Focus is on longer syntheses with an emphasis upon using metal catalysts. Emphasis will be on complete characterization of final products using chromatographic and spectroscopic methods. Concludes with an individual synthesis project. Prerequisites: 35, 130.
Terms: Win | Units: 3 | UG Reqs: GER: DB-NatSci

CHEM 141: The Chemical Principles of Life I

This is the first course in a two-quarter sequence ( Chem 141/143), which will examine biological science through the lens of chemistry. In this sequence students will gain a qualitative and quantitative understanding of the molecular logic of cellular processes, which include expression and transmission of the genetic code, enzyme kinetics, biosynthesis, energy storage and consumption, membrane transport, and signal transduction. Connections to foundational principles of chemistry will be made through structure-function analyses of biological molecules. Integrated lessons in structural, mechanistic, and physical chemistry will underscore how molecular science and molecular innovation have impacted biology and medicine. Prerequisites: CHEM 35, MATH 21 or equivalent.
Terms: Win | Units: 4

CHEM 151: Inorganic Chemistry I

Theories of electronic structure, stereochemistry, and symmetry properties of inorganic molecules. Topics: ionic and covalent interactions, electron-deficient bonding, and molecular orbital theories. Emphasis is on the chemistry of the metallic elements. An introduction to the Gaussian program will be covered in the discussion sections, used for electronic calculations in the computer and problem set exercises. Prerequisites: 35.
Terms: Win | Units: 4 | UG Reqs: GER: DB-NatSci

CHEM 175: Physical Chemistry III

Molecular theory of kinetics and statistical mechanics: transport and reactions in gases and liquids, ensembles and the Boltzmann distribution law, partition functions, molecular simulation, structure and dynamics of liquids. Diffusion and activation limited reactions, potential energy surfaces, collision theory, transition-state theory and Marcus theory of reaction rates. Prerequisites: 171, 173.
