CHEM 2124 - General Chemistry II, 4 Credits
Prerequisite(s): CHEM 1114 with D or better or CHEM 1984 with D or better
Course Attributes: Gen. Ed. - Natural Sciences, Liberal Arts and Science
CHEM 2124 is a continuation of CHEM 1114, and is aimed at science majors. It completes the presentation of General Chemistry topics started in CHEM 1114 by surveying the topics of: acid & bases, titrations and nuclear chemistry. After these foundations are laid, the course will then survey two broad chemical domains: 1) Organic Chemistry, where the language and chemistry of selected functional groups (alkanes, alcohols, aromatics, carbonyls and carboxylic acids) will be covered, along with an exploration of chirality. 2) Biochemistry, including the chemistry and structure of carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, and nucleotides, along with selected topics in the chemistry of genetics (DNA/RNA) and nutrition.
