Level: Lower

Course Attributes: Gen Ed - Natural Sciences, Liberal Arts and Science

This course is a continuation of General Chemistry I and is intended for science majors. It completes the presentation of topics started in General Chemistry I by surveying the topics of: Acids & Bases, Electrochemistry and Nuclear Chemistry. After these foundations are laid, the course will then explore two broad chemical themes: 1) Organic Chemistry, where the language and chemistry of selected functional groups (alkanes, alkenes, aromatics, alcohols, aldehydes, ketones, amines, and carboxylic acids), along with an exploration of chirality will be covered and 2) Biochemistry, where the chemistry and structure of carbohydrates, lipids and proteins will be surveyed.
