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 33C: Problem Solving in Science

Development and practice of critical problem solving skills using chemical examples. Limited enrollment. Prerequisite: consent of instructor. Corequisite: CHEM 33.
Terms: Spr | Units: 1

CHEM 90: Directed Instruction/Reading

(Formerly Chem 110) Undergraduates pursue a reading program under supervision of a faculty member in Chemistry; may also involve participation in lab. Prerequisites: superior work in CHEM 31A, 31B, 31M, 31X, or 33; and consent of instructor.
Terms: Aut, Win, Spr, Sum | Units: 1-2 | Repeatable for credit

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 134: Instrumental Analysis Principles and Practice

The core objectives of the course will focus upon introducing and providing hands-on practice with analytical separation, spectroscopic identification, and calibrated quantification with strong technical communication (for the Writing-in-the-Major requirement) emphasized throughout the course. Lectures will focus on theory, and laboratory activities will provide hands-on practice with the GC, LC, XPS, ICP, MS, and UV/Vis instruments. Data analysis will be emphasized throughout the course with MATLAB being the primary tool for plotting and computations. Statistical measurements will be introduced to gauge the quality and validity of data. Lectures will be three times a week with a required four-hour laboratory section. The course will conclude with a student-developed project, focusing upon separation and quantification, and a poster presentation. The course should be completed prior to CHEM courses 174,176, or 184. Prerequisite: CHEM 33 or CHEM 100.
Terms: Spr | Units: 5 | UG Reqs: GER: DB-NatSci, WAY-AQR, WAY-SMA

CHEM 143: The Chemical Principles of Life II

This is the second course in a two-quarter sequence ( Chem 141/143), which will continue the discussion of 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. Prerequisite: Chem 141.
Terms: Spr | Units: 4

CHEM 153: Inorganic Chemistry II

Group theory; many-electron atomic theory; molecular orbital theory emphasizing general concepts and group theory; ligand field theory; application of physical methods to predict the geometry, magnetism, and electronic spectra of transition metal complexes. Prerequisites: CHEM 151, 173.
Terms: Spr | Units: 3 | UG Reqs: GER: DB-NatSci
Instructors: Solomon, E. (PI)

CHEM 171: Physical Chemistry I

Laws of thermodynamics, properties of gases, phase transitions and phase equilibrium, chemical equilibrium, chemical kinetics, reaction rate, thermal motion and energy barriers, kinetic molecular models. The MATLAB programming language with hands-on experiences will be introduced in discussion sections and used for simulations of chemical systems. Prerequisites: CHEM 33; PHYS 41; either MATH 51 or CME 100.
Terms: Spr | Units: 4 | UG Reqs: GER: DB-NatSci
