CHEM

1104 -- Principles of Chemistry -- 4 credit hours
Emphasis on the structures and reactions that occur in biological systems, as well as the study of carbohydrate, protein, enzyme, lipid, nucleic acid, and hormone function.  Laboratory component included.  Prerequisite: Concurrent enrollment in or successful completion of the general education mathematics requirement.  Note: Pre-nursing curriculum.

1214 -- General Chemistry I with Lab -- 4 credit hours
Deals with the structure of the atom and matter, nomenclature, stoichiometry, thermodynamics, and chemical bonding.  A two-hour laboratory series is included that correlates with the course's concepts.  Prerequisite: MATH 1013, unless waiver requirements are met.  Course rotation: Fall.

1224 -- General Chemistry II with Lab -- 4 credit hours
Continuation of General Chemistry I, this course deals with kinetics, equilibria, acids and bases, solutions, pH, radiation, and biological compounds.  A two-hour laboratory series is included that correlates with the course's concepts.  Prerequisite: CHEM 1214 with a minimum grade of C.  Course rotation: Spring.

3312 -- Organic Chemistry I Laboratory -- 2 credit hours
Presents a four-hour laboratory series that correlates with concepts in Organic Chemistry I Lecture.  Common organic laboratory techniques like distillations and recrystalizations as well as safe means of performing and analyzing simple organic reactions are covered.  Formal lab reporting methods are developed. Must be taken concurrently with the associated lecture CHEM 3313.  Prerequisite: CHEM 1224 with a minimum grade of C.  Course rotation: Fall. 

3313 -- Organic Chemistry I Lecture -- 3 credit hours
Lecture presents the chemistry of carbon compounds: alkenes, alkynes, alkyl, halides, alcohols, ethers, and esters.  Also includes nomenclature, preparations, reactions, reaction mechanisms, and stereochemistry.  Must be taken concurrently with the associated lab CHEM 3312.  Prerequisite: CHEM 1224 with a minimum grade of C.  Course rotation: Fall. 

3322 -- Organic Chemistry II Laboratory -- 2 credit hours
Presents a four-hour laboratory series that correlates with concepts in Organic Chemistry II Lecture.  More involved organic reactions, analytical methods, and qualitative organic analysis are covered.  Higher level conceptual analysis of the laboratory observations are developed.  Must be taken concurrently with associated lecture CHEM 3323.  Prerequisites: CHEM 3313 and CHEM 3312, both with a minimum grade of C.  Course rotation: Spring.

3323 -- Organic Chemistry II Lecture -- 3 credit hours
Continuation of Organic Chemistry I Lecture, including the study of the chemistry of aldehydes, ketones, carboxylic acids, aromatic compounds, amines, amides, and biological compounds.  Also includes some spectroscopy introduction: nuclear magnetic resonance, infrared, visible, ultraviolet, and mass spectroscopy.  Must be taken concurrently with the associated lab CHEM 3322.  Prerequisites: CHEM 3313 and 3312, both with a minimum grade of C.  Course rotation: Spring.

4104 -- Biochemistry -- 4 credit hours
Provides the material for a comprehensive undergraduate biochemistry course.  Topics include: production of biochemically useful energy, biochemical pathways, the structure and metabolism of carbohydrates, protein structure and functions, and the structures of lipids and nucleic acids.  The required laboratory will provide correlating exercises.  Prerequisite: CHEM 3323 with a minimum grade of C or instructor's permission.  Course rotation: Varies.
