CHEM110 Foundations of General, Organic & Biochemistry

4 credits (4 lec hrs/wk)  CHEM 110 is a survey of chemistry from atomic structure through biochemistry. CHEM 110 is primarily for students in pre-nursing, some allied health fields, or for students who need a brief introduction to chemistry. The course does not have an associated lab.  Prerequisite: MTH60 with a 'C' or better.

CHEM221/222/223 General Chemistry

5 credits (4 lec, 3 lab hrs/wk)  First-year chemistry for science, engineering, and health pre-professional students. Classroom and laboratory work are quantitative and require good math skills. Must be taken in sequence. CHEM221 - Covers atomic structure, chemical bonding, molecular geometry, reactions, and stoichiometry.  Prerequisite: MTH95 with a 'C' or better.

CHEM222 - Covers gases, liquids, solutions, equilibrium theory, kinetics, and redox.  Prerequisite: MTH111 and CHEM221 with a 'C' or better.
CHEM223 - Covers thermodynamics, acid-base chemistry, eletrochemistry, nuclear reactions, and transition metal chemistry.  Prerequisite: CHEM222 with a 'C' or better.   *Identifies professional-technical alpha prefixes currently used at Southwestern.

CHEM245 Organic Chemistry

4 credits (3 lec 3 lab hrs/wk) The first course of a three-term sequence in organic chemistry for students interested in the sciences, chemical engineering, and professional health programs. Topics include the structure of organic  molecules, organic functional groups, stereochemistry, reaction mechanisms, and spectroscopy. Includes a laboratory component. May be eligible for upper-division credit at a four-year institution.

CHEM246 Organic Chemistry II

4 credits (3 lec 3 lab hrs/wk) The second course of a three-term sequence in organic chemistry for students interested in the sciences, chemical engineering, and professional health programs. Topics include nucleophilic substitution at the carbonyl group and saturated carbons, organometallic compounds, elimination and addition reactions, and electrophilic and nucleophilic aromatic substitution. Includes a laboratory component. May be eligible for upper-division credit at a four-year institution.

CHEM247 Organic Chemistry III

4 credits (3 lec 3 lab hrs/wk) The third course of a three-term sequence in organic chemistry for students interested in the sciences, chemical engineering, and professional health programs. Topics include the chemistry of enols and enolate ions, radical chemistry, selectivity in chemical synthesis, retrosynthetic analysis, asymmetric synthesis, and biological macromolecules. Includes a laboratory component. May be eligible for upper-division credit at a four-year institution.
