Courses

CHEM 102 - Introductory University Chemistry II

Rates of reactions, thermodynamics and equilibrium, electro-chemistry, modern applications of chemistry. Prerequisite: CHEM 101.

Winter Term 2021
CHEM 105 - Introductory University Chemistry II

Rates of reactions, thermodynamics and equilibrium, electrochemistry, modern applications of chemistry. Prerequisite: CHEM 103. Note: Restricted to Engineering students only. Other students who take this course will receive *3.0.

Winter Term 2021
CHEM 264 - Organic Chemistry I: Theory

A remote delivery offering that emphasizes the correlation of structure and chemical bonding in carbon compounds with the physical properties and chemical reactivity of organic molecules. Discussion will be based on functional groups with emphasis on hydrocarbons and derivatives that contain halogens, oxygen, sulfur, and the hydroxy group. Introduction to stereochemistry, three-dimensional structure, reaction mechanisms, especially addition to double bonds, nucleophilic substitution and elimination reactions. Seminars will emphasize virtual laboratory techniques and online workshops for IR spectroscopy and stereochemistry. Prerequisite CHEM 101 or 103. Note: Students who have obtained credit for CHEM 261 cannot take CHEM 264 for credit.

Spring Term 2021
CHEM 265 - Organic Chemistry II: Theory

A remote delivery offering that is a continuation of the structural and chemical properties of the basic functional groups of organic compounds including alkynes, aromatic compounds, aldehydes, ketones, carboxylic acids and their derivatives and amines. Illustration of these functional groups in natural products such as carbohydrates, amino acids and proteins, nucleic acids and lipids. Discussion of the application of spectroscopic methods for the structure determination in simple organic molecules. Seminars will emphasize the virtual application of laboratory techniques in standard organic reactions, as well as online workshops for NMR and structure determination. Prerequisites: CHEM 261 or 264. Note: Students who have obtained credit for CHEM 263 cannot take CHEM 265 for credit.
