CH 150 - Structure and Reactivity


This course introduces students to the connections between the structure of molecules and the mechanisms of reactions. Topics covered include: a focus on molecular structure including molecular orbital theory, hybridization, conformational analysis and stereochemistry; reaction mechanism, effect of thermodynamics, and kinetics; acid-base chemistry; physical properties; and colligative properties. The laboratory will introduce students to: techniques in separation, including chromatography and extraction; purification, including recrystallization and distillation; and use of modern spectrometric methods to identify compounds.

 

Three hours of lecture and three hours of laboratory each week. Four credits

Pre or Co-requisite(s): CH 130
