AUCHE 250 - Synthesis I

★ 3 (fi 6)(FIRST, 3-0-0)

An introduction to bonding and functionality in organic compounds. Qualitative factors affecting acidity and basicity will be introduced, as well as the concept of aromaticity. A mechanistic approach to learning reactions will be emphasized, with discussion of the nucleophilic acyl additions and substitutions, nucleophilic reactions adjacent to carbonyls, simple substitutions, and electrophilic aromatic substitutions. The three-dimensional structure of molecules and the concept of stereochemistry will also be examined. Prerequisite: AUCHE 212; AUCHE 230 is recommended.

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.
