Chemistry Options

CHEM 1212. Principles of Chemistry 2 (3-0-3) Prerequisites: CHEM 1211 and CHEM 1211L with a grade of C or better in each. Co-requisite: CHEM 1212L. Second course in a two-semester sequence covering the fundamental principles and applications of chemistry designed for science majors. Topics include liquids and solids, reactions and properties of solutions; equilibrium, chemical kinetics, acid-base theory, thermodynamics, oxidation and reduction, and electrochemistry.

CHEM 1212L. Principles of Chemistry 2 Lab (0-3-1) Prerequisite: CHEM 1211 and CHEM 1211L with a grade of "C" or better in each; Corequisite: CHEM 1212. The laboratory includes acid-base titrations, kinetics and thermodynamic experiments, volumetric analysis and qualitative analysis of selected cations. (Course fee required.)

CHEM 2115. Quantitative Chemical Analysis (3-0-3) Prerequisites: CHEM 1212 and CHEM 1212L with a grade of C or better in each. Co-requisite: CHEM 2315. An introduction into the field of analytical chemistry. Topics include acquisition of analytical data and statistical analysis; theory of simple and complex equilibria such as acid-base, precipitation, redox and complexation reactions, and their analytical applications; electrochemistry; spectroscopy, and chromatography.

CHEM 2315. Quantitative Chemical Analysis Lab (0-3-1) Prerequisite: CHEM 1212 and CHEM 1212L with a grade of C or better in each; Corequisite: CHEM 2115. Laboratory course emphasizing wet chemical methods of analysis. Topics include data handling, volumetric, gravimetric, precipitation, acid-base, metal chelation, and redox titrations, non-aqueous titrations, gravimetry, ion-exchange equilibria, and spectroscopic methods of analysis. The sequence of the experiments in the laboratory is chosen to coordinate with the lecture materials. (Course fee required.)
