Chemistry

  • CHE 1500 Intro to Chemistry

    Students will investigate fundamental concepts of chemistry from a theoretical approach using basic scientific tools of measurement and problem solving. Topics include atomic structure, nomenclature, bonding, periodic behavior, chemical equations, acids and bases, gases, liquids, solids, and properties of solutions. The course is for students with little or no chemistry background and/or who wish to continue in CHE 1550. Eligibility ENG 1510; Corequisites: MAT 0600 or MAT 1500; must meet minimum college level reading score: Accuplacer 80+. Master Course Syllabus

  • CHE 1530 Allied Health Chemistry

    Students will consider selected basic concepts from inorganic, organic, and biological chemistry which will be applied to allied health and biological fields. Topics include matter and measurements, chemical bonds and reactions, redox, states of matter, acids and bases, organic functional groups, and common macromolecules in biological systems. The course is for students with little or no chemistry background who are pursuing a degree in an allied health field or who wish to continue in CHE 1550. Corequisite: MAT 0600 or MAT 1500; Eligibility: ENG 1510; must meet minimum college level reading score: Accuplacer 80+. Master Course Syllabus

  • CHE 1550 College Chemistry I

    Students will investigate fundamental concepts of chemistry from a theoretical perspective with an emphasis on problem solving. Through the laboratory students will attain and demonstrate qualitative and quantitative skills. The chemistry of elements and compounds will be studied through measurements, atomic structure, periodicity, chemical bonding, stoichiometry, reaction classification, redox, gases, liquids, and solids. The review class is strongly recommended as an opportunity to practice problem solving, to ask specific questions, and to review returned quizzes and exams. Course content is designed for the science/engineering major who has already taken a chemistry course and who wishes to transfer to a four-year institution. Prerequisite: high school chemistry or CHE 1500 or CHE 1530; Corequisites: ENG 1510 and MAT 1590; must meet minimum college level reading score: Accuplacer 80+. Master Course Syllabus

  • CHE 1560 College Chemistry II

    A continuation of CHE 1550, students will investigate intermolecular forces in solids and liquids, solutions, kinetics, equilibrium, acids and bases, thermodynamics, electrochemistry, and nuclear reactions. Prerequisite: CHE 1550; Corequisite: ENG 1530 and MAT 1600. Master Course Syllabus

  • CHE 2530 Organic Chemistry I

    Students will apply many concepts from college chemistry to the study of organic molecules. Students will be able to name and draw structures, assign properties, predict reaction products, synthesize and explain the reaction mechanisms for alkanes, alkenes, alkynes, and cyclic hydrocarbons as well as alkylhalides, alcohols, and ethers. Aromatic compounds will be introduced and stereochemistry and effects of solvents will also be investigated. A broad spectrum of classical organic reactions will be examined in the lab using microscale techniques.Prerequisite: CHE 1560. Master Course Syllabus

  • CHE 2540 Organic Chemistry II

    A continuation of CHE 2530, students will extend their studies to the spectroscopic analysis of hydrocarbons. Additional topics include aromatic compounds, adehydes, ketones, carbanions, carboxylic acids and their derivatives, amines, phenols, amino acids, polymers, lipids, carbohydrates, and proteins, and nucleic acids. Labs (still microscale) will investigate a range of multistep reaction sequences, as well as a few short classic reactions. Prerequisite: CHE 2530. Master Course Syllabus
