CHEM 111-01  General Chemistry I: Structure and Equilibrium
MWF 08:30 am-09:30 am OLRI 301 Kathryn Splan
*First Year Course only; first day attendance required* This course, along with General Chemistry II (CHEM 112), which is typically taken in the spring semester of the first year, together satisfy the prerequisites for Organic (CHEM 211) and Analytical (CHEM 222) Chemistry. General Chemistry I offers a rigorous, foundational treatment of atoms and molecules. We study the nature of chemical bonding and how bonding gives rise to the three-dimensional structure of matter. We explore how the macroscopic properties of substances can be interpreted in terms of atomic and molecular structure. We also learn mathematical and conceptual tools for quantifying chemical equilibrium, with an emphasis on the reactions of acids and bases. Laboratory work reinforces concepts in lecture, and also provides a review of fundamental topics, such as stoichiometry, gas laws, and solution-phase reactions, that are essential for future course work in chemistry. Writing is another important part of this course. Writing assignments will include both formal reports on laboratory work and a research paper due at the end of the semester. Students planning to enroll in this course should have taken one year of chemistry in high school, and should already be familiar with topics like nomenclature, oxidation states, stoichiometry (including balancing chemical equations and calculating solution concentrations), and simple chemical reactions in solution.

CHEM 394-01  Polymer and Macromolecular Chemistry
W 07:00 pm-10:00 pm OLRI 205 Ronald Brisbois
*First day attendance required* Polymer and macromolecular chemistry combine to form a highly interdisciplinary field that cuts across all areas of modern chemistry. In particular, the preparation of polymeric and macromolecular materials can be used to illustrate many of the fundamental concepts of synthetic chemistry. Like small molecules as applied in medicines, polymeric and macromolecular materials occupy a central role in maintaining overall societal well-being. However, unlike small molecules, which are typically synthesized and used as discreet, homogeneous compounds, polymeric and macromolecular materials are usually synthesized and used as a heterogeneous distribution of compounds of the same structural motif but varying size. This course will explore: (a) key historical developments (and people) giving rise to modern polymer and macromolecular chemistry, (b) classical and contemporary protocols for polymer and macromolecular synthesis, (c) compare and contrast physical properties of small, mono-disperse molecules with those of large, poly-disperse polymer and macromolecular substances, (d) applications of polymer and macromolecular materials to societal needs. Prerequisite: CHEM 211 and 212, each earned with grades of C or higher.
