Courses: Lab in Chemical Structure and Reactivity (CHEMH301A01)
Two lectures and two laboratory periods. An introduction to the methods of research in chemistry. Inorganic, organic, physical chemistry, and biochemical concepts are integrated in a broad laboratory study of structure and its relationship to chemical reactivity. Physical methods are used in studies of organic, inorganic, and biochemical reactions. Chemical synthesis and the modern methods of instrumental analytical chemistry are particularly stressed. Instruments such as lasers, the 300 MHz NMR spectrometer, powder x-ray diffraction,and the gas chromatograph-mass spectrometer are used by students, with faculty supervision.
