Courses

An introduction to chemical laboratory techniques and methods with emphasis on preparation, purification, and identification of compounds, elemental analysis, reaction stoichiometry, chemical ionization, thermochemistry, spectrophotometric techniques, and selective descriptive inorganic chemistry. Most experiments involve the identification of unknowns and statistical analysis of data. The experiments in CHM 161 parallel the topics covered in CHM 151. A written laboratory report summarizing the procedure and results for each experiment is required. For science and engineering majors. Honors sections are offered.

The application of physico-chemical principles to inorganic systems. Discussion of chemistry of the representative elements utilizing thermodynamic principles and the modern theories of bonding and structure. Introduction to coordination chemistry.

Students will integrate knowledge that they have gained throughout the major and the University Studies curriculum to perform a capstone research project. This will include a lecture component on presenting data in addition to the major laboratory research focus.
