Courses: Lab in Chemical Structure and Reactivity (CHEMH302B01)

Spring 2012

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 500 MHz NMR spectrometer, and the mass spectrometer combined with either gas or liquid chromatography are used by students, with faculty supervision.

Prerequisites: Chem 221 and 304.

Fulfills: NA II
