The courses that I regularly teach are listed below.  Please consult the Dokeos site for information on current class scheules and assignments.



CHEM 205 - ORGANIC CHEMISTRY
A systematic study of the compounds of carbon, with emphasis on modern electronic interpretations of reaction mechanisms and multistep organic synthesis. Hours credit: 3. Prerequisite: Chemistry 106 or the equivalent. Corequisite: Chemistry 205L.

CHEM 205L - ORGANIC CHEMISTRY LABORATORY
Laboratory experiences that supplement and illustrate the concepts presented in CHEM 205 including a survey of the techniques of organic chemistry, the preparation of representative organic compounds, and an emphasis on instrumental techniques including gas and high performance liquid chromatography, mass, infrared, magnetic resonance and ultraviolet spectroscopy. Hours credit: 1. Corequisite: CHEM 205.

CHEM 206 - ORGANIC CHEMISTRY
A systematic study of the compounds of carbon, with emphasis on modern electronic interpretations of reaction mechanisms and multistep organic synthesis. Hours credit: 3. Prerequisite: Chemistry 205 or the equivalent. Corequisite: Chemistry 206L.

CHEM 206L - ORGANIC CHEMISTRY LABORATORY
Laboratory experiences that supplement and illustrate the concepts presented in CHEM 206 including a survey of the techniques of organic chemistry, the preparation of representative organic compounds, and an emphasis on instrumental techniques including gas and high performance liquid chromatography, mass, infrared, magnetic resonance and ultraviolet spectroscopy. Hours credit: 1. Corequisite: Chemistry 206.

CHEM 250 - BIOCHEMICAL NUTRITION
The biochemical basis of nutrient digestion and absorption will be examined. Students will study the major metabolic pathways as they relate to dietary carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, fiber, vitamins, and minerals. Additional topics may include current issues in nutrition, such as genetically modified food sources, food borne illnesses, and fad diets. Hours credit: 3. Prerequisite: Chemistry 106. Offered alternate years.

CHEM 291 - CHEMICAL RESEARCH
This course provides an opportunity for students to undertake an individual research project under the mentorship of a department faculty member. The course will introduce students to current chemical literature, laboratory research methods, and presentation of experimental results. The research project will culminate in a formal written report following the guidelines of the American Chemical Society. Opportunities may exist for presentation of results at regional scientific conferences. Hours credit: 1, 2, or 3. Prerequisite: CHEM 105, 106 or permission of the instructor. May be repeated for credit up to a maximum of nine hours.

CHEM 312 - TOPICS IN ORGANIC CHEMISTRY
A continuation of Chemistry 205, 206. Topics may include concerted reactions and reaction mechanisms, advanced nomenclature, linear free energy relationships, total synthesis, and organic spectroscopy. Hours Credit: 3. Prerequisites: CHEM 205, 206. Offered alternate years.

CHEM 335 - BIOCHEMISTRY
The chemistry of substances of biological importance and reactions involved in biological processes, including protein structure and function, metabolic pathways, and an introduction to the chemistry of genetic material. Hours credit: 3. Prerequisite: Chemistry 206.

CHEM 335L - BIOCHEMISTRY LABORATORY
Laboratory experiences that supplement and illustrate the concepts presented in Chemistry 335, including basic biochemical techniques and procedures. Hours credit: 1. Corequisite or prerequisite: Chemistry 335.
