CHEM 011 Preparatory Chemistry (Cr2) (2:0)
This course is designed to meet the needs of Allied Health, science, and engineering students to prepare them for CHEM135 (Chemistry of Life) or CHEM120 (General Chemistry I), required courses in their programs of study. The development of skills for solving quantitative (numerical) problems is emphasized. Topics include measurement, basic chemical concepts and theories, and nomenclature of simple ionic and covalent compounds.

CHEM 105 Chemistry in Contemporary Society (Cr4) (3:2)
This lecture and laboratory course is designed for non-science majors. Students will learn about the many discoveries in chemistry and how they have resulted in significant changes in our world and in the quality of our lives. Students will become better informed about our chemical world in areas such as nutrition, consumer products, medicine, agriculture, industrial products, air and water pollution, and energy. Core: SCI. Also available through Online Learning.

CHEM 120 General Chemistry I (Cr4) (3:3)
Chemistry I is a qualitative and quantitative study, both in the classroom and the laboratory, of matter and energy as they relate to the chemical properties of solids, liquids, gases, and solutions. Topics include stoichiometry, atomic/ molecular structure, bonding, states of matter, changes of state, and solutions. A quantitative study of each area is stressed; a strong background in chemistry and mathematics is required. This course is intended for science and engineering majors. Prereq. - Appropriate competence as outlined in the Mathematics Placement Policy or MATH 022; Chemistry (1 year of high school chemistry or CHEM 011); and Reading and writing competence as determined for ENGL 101. Core: SCI.

CHEM 121 Lab Safety Procedure (Cr2) (2:0)
Development of safety attitudes and safety training, toxicological concepts, hazards, risk analysis, chemical storage and disposal, safety regulations, and safety literature, examination of selected case studies and accidents.

CHEM 135 Chemistry of Life (Cr4) (3:2)
Principles of general, organic, and biochemistry with emphasis on applications in the health sciences. Also available through Online Learning. Core: SCI.

CHEM 201G Organic Chemistry I (Cr4) (3:3)
Functional groups, structures, stereo-chemistry, rates of reactions, reaction mechanisms, preparations and reactions of alkanes, alkenes, dienes, optical isomers, and aromatic compounds; modern organic lab techniques and applications to chemistry, biology, and chemical engineering. Pre- or coreq. - CHEM 220 and ENGL 101.

CHEM 220 General Chemistry II (Cr4) (3:3)
This lecture and laboratory course is a continuation of CHEM 120, General Chemistry I. Students will learn molecular shapes, chemical reactions, changes of state and properties of liquids, solutions, reaction kinetics, chemical equilibrium, thermodynamics and electrochemistry. Equilibrium topics include gaseous reactions, the ionization of weak acids and bases, hydrolysis of salts, and buffers. Prereq. - CHEM 120.

CHEM 225 Quantitative Analysis (Cr4) (3:3)
Evaluation of analytical data, aqueous and nonaqueous solution chemistry, titration curves, electrochemistry; theory and applications of: gravimetric, titrimetric, potentiometric, complexation, electroanalytical, spectrophotometric, and chromatographic methods of analysis. Prereq. - CHEM 220.

CHEM 228 Chemical Methods and Instrumentation (Cr3) (2:3)
Instrumentation including GC, HPLC, GC/MS, IR, NMR, ICP; introduction to EPA, TQM, and ISO-9000; regulatory compliances; team-oriented problem solving/process improvement methods.
Prereq. - CHEM 220.

CHEM 251 Organic Chemistry II (Cr4) (3:3)
Continuation of CHEM 201, including preparation and reactions of alcohols, thiols, disulfides, ethers, aldehydes, ketones, carboxylic acids, amides, esters, amines, amino acids, and proteins; modern organic lab techniques, and an optional student project in lab. Prereq. - CHEM 201.

CHEM260 Biochemistry (Cr3) (3:0)
In this course, emphasis will be placed on the chemistry of biomolecules and their utilization in intermediary metabolism. The principles of bioenergetics and the integration of metabolic control are developed. This course is lecture-only and is intended for students majoring in chemistry, biology, or who intend on pursuing a career in medicine, dentistry, pharmacy or other health-related field. Pre- or co-req. - CHEM251

CHEM 261 Research in Chemistry (Cr1) (0:3)
This course provides students with an opportunity to do supervised undergraduate research of a topic of interest. Students will utilize the principles, laws, and theories of general chemistry to successfully analyze samples provided using selected instrumental methods. The student will need to be competent to follow a standard procedure, to operate the instrument in a safe manner, to collect suitable data, to evaluate the reliability of the data collected, and to report the results in an appropriate form as would be required of a competent laboratory technician. Repeatable; may be taken 2 times. Prereq. - CHEM 220 and permission of the instructor.
