Course Descriptions

CHM 101 – General Chemistry I (4 Credit Hours)

CHM 101 is the first semester of a two semester General Chemistry sequence for students majoring in science, or preparing for entry into health professional programs such as medicine, dentistry, pharmacy and veterinary science. CHM 101 provides a comprehensive introduction to the basic principles of chemistry including atomic and molecular structure, properties of gases, liquids and solids, and chemical thermodynamics.
Prerequisite: None.

CHM 102 – Introduction to Chemistry (4 Credit Hours)

CHM 102 is a single-semester, terminal course designed to provide engineering students with a foundation in the fundamental principles and concepts of chemistry. Topics covered include atomic structure, nomenclature, chemical equations, stoichiometry, thermochemistry, chemical bonding, solution properties, kinetics, equilibrium, electrochemistry, descriptive inorganic, nuclear chemistry, and bio/organic chemistry.
Prerequisite: None.

CHM 107 – Chemistry in the Environment and Everyday Living (4 Credit Hours)

CHM 107 examines the role of chemistry in everyday life and in the environment, and is intended for students not pursuing scientific or engineering majors. Chemical principles are introduced to the extent necessary for understanding of issues.
Prerequisite: None.

CHM 112 – General Chemistry II (4 Credit Hours)

CHM 112 is the second of a two semester chemistry course for science majors or those preparing for entry into health professional programs such as medicine, dentistry, pharmacy and veterinary science. CHM 112 builds on fundamental principles mastered in the first semester of the course.
Prerequisite: CHM 101.

CHM 211 – Organic Chemistry I (4 Credit Hours)

CHM 211 is the first semester of a two semester sequence for science majors and those preparing for entry into health professional programs such as medicine, dentistry, pharmacy and veterinary science. CHM 211 focus on bonding principles, functional groups, isomerism, stereochemistry, nomenclature, synthesis and reactions of alkanes, cycloalkanes, alkenes, alkynes, alcohols, and alkyl halides. Addition, elimination, rearrangement and substitution mechanisms.
Prerequisite: CHM 112.

CHM 212 – Organic Chemistry II (4 Credit Hours)

CHM 212 Continuation of CHM 211. Nomenclature, properties, reactions and synthesis of conjugated dienes, aromatics, organometallics, alcohols, phenols, ethers, aldehydes and ketones, carboxylic acids and derivatives, and amines. Mechanisms include electrophilic aromatic substitution and nucleophilic addition. Carbohydrates, amino acids, proteins and nucleic acids
Prerequisite: CHM 211.

CHM 310 - Introduction to Instrumental Analysis (4 Credit Hours)

Introduction to the theories of analysis by instrumental methods. Basic electronics are applied to chemical measurements. Topics include an introduction to the theory of spectroscopy, ultraviolet, visible, infrared, and others. CHM 310 is an introduction to basic principles and the instrumental design of a variety of analytical techniques, including: electrochemical, spectrochemical (molecular and atomic), chromatographical and mass spectrochemical
Prerequisite: CHM 212.
