Requirements & Distribution:
Credit Exclusions:
No credit granted to those who have completed or are enrolled in CHEM 260.
Advisory Prerequisites:
CHEM 215/216. Students who plan to continue beyond a fourth term in Chemistry would typically enroll in CHEM 260/241/242 instead of CHEM 230; credit will not be given for both of these courses.
Other Course Info:
F, W, Sp.
This course counts toward the 60 credits of math/science required for a Bachelor of Science degree.
May not be repeated for credit.
Primary Instructor:

This Chemistry course is intended as a fourth term in chemistry for science concentrators and pre-professional students, completing the two-year chemistry sequence required by, for example, the medical, dental, and engineering programs. Students who plan to continue beyond a fourth term in chemistry would typically enroll in CHEM 260/241/242 instead of CHEM 230; credit will not be given for both of these courses.

In CHEM 230, students will be introduced to the physical principles underlying some of the major topics of inorganic and analytical chemistry. These include the gaseous, liquid, and solid states of matter; phase transitions and solutions; electrochemistry and the principles of oxidation-reduction reactions; chemical kinetics and the study of chemical orbitals and chemical bonding; transition metal chemistry and coordination complexes. These topics will be treated from the viewpoint of the experimental scientist, with an emphasis on the application of physical chemical principles to chemical behavior in a broad spectrum of settings.

CHEM 230 will meet three times each week in lecture sections with senior faculty and once a week in small group discussion classes led by graduate student instructors. Lecturers and GSIs will have scheduled office hours for after class help, and computerized study aids will be available to all students. Course grades will be determined from three one-hour examinations.
