CHEM 33: Structure and Reactivity of Organic Molecules

An introduction to organic chemistry, the molecular foundation to understanding of life, energy, and material science. Students will learn structural and bonding models of organic molecules that provide insights into chemical, physical, and reactivity properties, in addition to their biological activities. Combining these models with kinetic and thermodynamic analyses allows molecular interconversions to be rationalized. Translation of this knowledge to more complex systems empowers the synthesis of novel molecules or materials that can positively impact our society and environment. A two-hour weekly lab section accompanies the course to introduce the techniques of separation and identification of organic compounds. Pre-requisite: CHEM 31A and 31B, or CHEM 31M, or CHEM 31X, or AP Chemistry score of 5.
Terms: Win, Spr, Sum | Units: 5 | UG Reqs: GER: DB-NatSci, WAY-SMA

CHEM 121: Organic Chemistry of Bioactive Molecules

(Formerly CHEM 35) Focuses on the structure and reactivity of natural and synthetic bioactive molecules. Covers fundamental concepts underlying chemical reactivity and the logic of chemical synthesis for an appreciation of the profound impact of organic chemistry on humankind in fields ranging from medicine to earth and planetary science. A three hour lab section provides hands on experience with modern chemical methods for preparative and analytical chemistry. Prerequisite CHEM 33 or corequisite CHEM 100.
Terms: Aut, Spr, Sum | Units: 5 | UG Reqs: GER: DB-NatSci

CHEM 123: Organic Polyfunctional Compounds

(Formerly CHEM 131.) Analysis of molecular symmetry and spectroscopy, aromaticity, aromatic reactivity, heterocyclic chemistry, chemistry of peptides and DNA. Prerequisite: CHEM 121 (formerly CHEM 35).
Terms: Aut | Units: 3 | UG Reqs: GER: DB-NatSci

CHEM 124: Organic Chemistry Laboratory

(Formerly Chem 130) Intermediate organic chemistry laboratory with combined synthesis and spectroscopy. Synthesis involves several reactions including Nobel prize winning reactions, such as Diels-Alder and Wittig reactions; characterization techniques include NMR, IR, and GCMS. Prerequisite: Chem 121 (formerly Chem 35) and corequisite: Chem 123 (formerly 131).

CHEM 126: Synthesis Laboratory

(Formerly 132) This is a laboratory course that will provide a true experience of what it is like to perform research in synthetic organic chemistry. Emphasis will be on proper reaction setup, reaction monitoring, and complete characterization of final products using chromatographic and spectroscopic methods. Students will be utilizing modern electronic notebooks to prepare for and document their experiments. Concludes with an individual synthesis project. Prerequisites: Chem 124 (formerly Chem 130).
Terms: Win | Units: 3 | UG Reqs: GER: DB-NatSci

CHEM 129: Design and Synthesis of Polymers (CHEM 229)

(Formerly CHEM 137) Polymers are ubiquitous and important for everyday life and advanced technologies for our modern society. Developments in polymer chemistry have allowed the synthesis of polymers with controlled molecular weights, architectures, tacticity, and rich functionalities. Such synthetic controls in macromolecular structures lead to diverse and tunable properties and functions of the produced materials. Therefore, this course also covers basic properties and structure-property relationships of polymers for rational design of structures and selection of chemistry. Polymer chemistry is built on our understanding on the reactivity of organic intermediates, which will be discussed throughout the course. Prerequisite: organic chemistry knowledge, CHEM 123 (formerly CHEM 131).
