Winter Term 2024 (1860)

AUCHE 252 - Organic Chemistry II

★ 3 (fi 6)(SECOND, 3-0-3)

Continuation of AUCHE 250, again emphasizing a mechanist approach. The chemistry of alcohols, conjugated unsaturated systems, aromatic rings, carbonyl-containing compounds, organic reduction-oxidation reactions, and beta-dicarbonyl compounds will be discussed. Carbohydrate chemistry will be introduced as a way to explore many concepts in a biochemical context. Prerequisite: AUCHE 250.

AUCHE 450 - Enzymes and Enzyme Mechanisms

★ 3 (fi 6)(EITHER, 3-0-0)

Study of the mechanism of different classes of enzymes along with experimental techniques used in enzymology. Prerequisite: AUCHE 250. Note: AUBIO 280 (Biochemistry: Proteins, Enzymes and Energy) is a suggested pre or corequisite.

AUSCI 405 - Chemical and Physical Sciences Capstone

★ 3 (fi 6)(EITHER, 3-0-0)

This course will integrate learning across the different streams in the Chemical and Physical Sciences major. Students will spend time examining some significant historical problems such as the history of the development of the atomic model, history of the development of the periodic table, diversity and ethical questions and problems in the natural sciences. The course will culminate with an interdisciplinary senior research project. Prerequisites: 4th year standing and *6 of 300- or 400-level AUBIO, AUCHE or AUPHY.

AUSCI 425 - Senior Mentorship Experience

★ 3 (fi 6)(EITHER, 0-3S-0)

This course will involve weekly laboratory instruction for general chemistry (AUSCI 125 and AUCHE 213) labs. Students enrolled in the course will be responsible for supervision of students during the labs as well as mentoring of junior students who will be assisting in the lab. Students will be expected to attend weekly technical meetings on lab logistics, safety and procedures. In addition, students will attend weekly seminars on teaching practice, communication and student mentorship experience. An important component of this course will be reflective assignments about the teaching experience. Prerequisites: 3rd or 4th year standing. Consent of the instructors based on successful completion of the selection process.
