CHEM 1410: Introductory College Chemistry I
Credits: 3
Introduces the principles and applications of chemistry. Topics include stoichiometry, chemical equations and reactions, chemical bonding, states of matter, thermochemistry, chemical kinetics, equilibrium, acids and bases, electrochemistry, nuclear chemistry, and descriptive chemistry of the elements. For students planning to elect further courses in chemistry, physics, and biology and to fulfill prehealth prerequisites. CHEM 1411 may be taken concurrently or after completing 1410. Drop/withdrawal from CHEM 1410, requires drop/withdrawal from CHEM 1411. A grade of C- or higher is required to take CHEM 1420.
CHEM 1610: Introductory Chemistry I for Engineers
Credits: 3
Introduces the principles and applications of chemistry. Topics include stoichiometry, chemical equations and reactions, chemical bonding, states of matter, thermochemistry, chemical kinetics, equilibrium, acids and bases, electrochemistry, nuclear chemistry, and descriptive chemistry of the elements. For students planning to elect further courses in chemistry, physics, and biology and to fulfill prehealth prerequisites. Prerequisite: CHEM 1611 or 1411 may be taken concurrently or after completing 1610. Drop/withdrawal from CHEM 1610, requires drop/withdrawal from CHEM 1611/1411. A grade of C- or higher required for CHEM 1620.
CHEM 5310: Advanced Inorganic Chemistry I: Reaction Mechanisms
Credits: 3
Introduces the electronic structure of atoms and simple molecules, including basic concepts and applications of symmetry and group theory. The chemistry of the main group elements is described using energetics, structure, and reaction pathways to provide a theoretical background. Emphasizes applying these concepts to predicting the stability and developing synthetic routes to individual compounds or classes. Prerequisite: CHEM 4320 or instructor permission.
CHEM 7030: Research Seminar III: Preparation for Ph.D. Candidacy Exam
Credits: 3
The focus of this course is to prepare students for their Chemistry Ph.D. candidacy exam & to develop appropriate written & oral communication skills. Each student will prepare several written abstracts & make oral presentations for the class in a format that largely mimics the candidacy exam. Students are required to attend departmental seminars & colloquia to expand their knowledge of current experimental and theoretical frontiers in science.
CHEM 7031: The Art of Scientific Writing
Credits: 1
Skill in scientific writing is as essential for scientists as learning the experimental techniques and analysis methods of their field. Mastery of the skills for expository writing is essential to write an effective scientific document and the genres of scientific communication. Three writing assignments - a draft of each, which will be extensively marked up, & then a final version which will be subjected to a peer review & expert review.
CHEM 8320: Selected Topics in Chemistry and Biochemistry: Exoplanets
Credits: 3
This course will survey exoplanet detection methods, formation, properties, atmospheres, spectra and habitability.
CHEM 8999: Masters Research
Credits: 1–12
For students pursuing a masters degree and conducting research.
CHEM 9320: Research in Synthetic and Mechanistic Organometallic Chemistry
Credits: 1–12
Research in Synthetic and Mechanistic Organometallic Chemistry
CHEM 9999: Doctoral Research
Credits: 1–12
For doctoral research, taken before a dissertation advisor has been selected.
