CHEM 105 — Our Changing Atmosphere
Section 001, LEC

Instructor: Keeler,Gerald J

FA 2007
Credits: 3
Reqs: BS, NS

This course considers the science needed to understand human-induced threats to the atmospheric environment, with special emphasis on the global changes that are taking place, or are anticipated. We will discuss the greenhouse effect (and its impact on climate), ozone depletion, the polar ozone holes, and urban air pollution. Some basic meteorology will be presented, including how climate changes might affect the frequency and severity of hurricanes and tornadoes. Students will have access to real-time weather information via computer. This lecture course is intended for non-science concentrators, and there are no prerequisites. Grades will be based on three one-hour exams (no final exam) and homework.

CHEM 125 — General Chemistry Laboratory I
Section 100, LEC

Instructor: Kerner,Nancy Konigsberg

FA 2007
Credits: 1
Reqs: BS, NS

This laboratory course can be elected with, or following, CHEM 130. It is intended that students planning to enroll in CHEM 130 who have had little or no previous chemistry laboratory enroll concurrently in CHEM 125 and CHEM 126. The focus of this guided inquiry laboratory is to foster critical thinking that allows students to design, perform, and interpret experiments. In addition, the student acquires technical skills that are required for further advancement in experimental sciences. Although an ability to collect and analyze data in a quantitative manner is developed, the emphasis of the course is to provide a qualitative understanding of the basic concepts of chemistry. This is accomplished by demonstrating that chemical principles are derived from experimental data. The goal is to provide students both with a more accurate picture of the scientific process and also with skills that are relevant to solving real life problems. Much of the course work is done as a member of a team. Student groups each explore the same problem with each group using different reagents and/or conditions. A networked computer system is used to collect, pool, and summarize the largely qualitative class data. Student groups address questions which require them to organize the class data using commercial graphing software. Group answers are presented in discussion. The format of the course is organized into three sections. Pre-laboratory reading and questions are completed prior to each multi-period project laboratory. A one-hour lecture provides support for the topics and problems that will be investigated in the laboratory. The second component is performance in the laboratory where team data are shared, analyzed, and evaluated. The third begins in the first hour following completion of each multi-period project lab where groups communicate their findings during a student-led discussion. There are two one-hour written examinations, scheduled for Tuesday evenings, that constitute 30% of the grade. The remaining 70% of the grade is based on the points acquired in laboratory and discussion.

Reqs: BS, NS

This General Chemistry course is intended to satisfy the one-term chemistry requirement for students interested in science particularly chemistry as their concentration, or as a natural science elective for non-science concentrators. This course may also be used as the first term in a four or more term chemistry sequence (probably CHEM 130, 210/211, 215/216, 260/241/242, etc.) for science concentrators and pre-professional students.

CHEM 130.600 provides an introduction to the major concepts of chemistry in an experimental manner, integrating traditional lecture with hands on laboratory methods in a studio classroom. The topics will include the microscopic picture of atomic and molecular structure, periodic trends in chemical reactivity, the energetics of chemical reactions, the nature of chemical equilibria, and electrochemistry. Students will be introduced to science as a discipline, as well as the process of chemical research. The integrated CHEM 130.600 studio section will give students an opportunity to think critically, examine experimental data, and form generalizations about data as chemists do within a highly collaborative setting. Emphasis in the studio classroom will be on drawing a direct connection between concepts and observed scientific phenomenon. The integrated CHEM 130.600 and 125.600 will meet in a large lecture hall one time each week for two hours for instruction led by a faculty member, once a week for two hours in a small discussion section led by faculty and graduate student instructors, and twice a week for two hours each time in a laboratory led by a graduate student instructor.

Lecturers and graduate student instructors will have scheduled office hours for after-class help. Course grades will be determined from in class discussion, homework, writing assignments (including lab reports), three two-hour examinations (Tuesday nights), and a final examination including both written and hands-on portions.

CHEM 125.600 and CHEM 126.600 is the associated section of laboratory offered for students enrolled in the CHEM 130.600 section. This course will be taught in conjunction with the CHEM 130.600 section, and students must be concurrently enrolled in both sections. The laboratory component for this course will emphasize critical thinking skills, problem solving, and hands-on experiments. Students will have the opportunity to design their own experiments and to critically analyze and interpret data. Use of benchtop and handheld electronic data acquisition equipment will be stressed as well as examination of the accuracy and reliability of such equipment.

As described under the heading for CHEM 130.600, the laboratory portion of this integrated course will involve a pedagogically rational intersection of discussion, hands-on, and project-based activities in a studio format. The grading for the laboratory component will be based on class discussion and participation, on developing proficiency with hands-on laboratory operations (designing, implementing, reporting and critically analyzing experimental work).

Credit Exclusions: Intended for students without AP credit in Chemistry.

This General Chemistry course is intended to satisfy the one-term chemistry requirement for students interested in science, or as a natural science elective for non-science concentrators. This course may also be used as the first term in a four or more term chemistry sequence (probably CHEM 130, 210/211, 215/216, 260/241/242, etc.) for science concentrators and pre-professional students.

CHEM 130 provides an introduction to the major concepts of chemistry, including the microscopic picture of atomic and molecular structure, periodic trends in the chemical reactivity, the energetics of chemical reactions, and the nature of chemical equilibria. Students will be introduced to the fundamental principles of modern chemistry, the descriptive chemistry of the elements, and to the underlying theories that account for observed macroscopic behavior. In CHEM 130, students will learn to think critically, examine experimental data, and form generalizations about data as chemists do. CHEM 130 will meet three times each week in lecture sections with senior faculty (the intensive section will have four lectures a week), and once a week in small group discussion classes led by graduate student instructors. Lecturers and graduate student instructors 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 discussion class evaluation, three one-hour examinations (Tuesday nights), and a final examination.

The intensive lecture section (Section 400) is intended for those students who would benefit from a smaller lecture section (maximum 100 students) and more lectures so that the pace is slower and there is more feedback. Placement by LS&A testing or permission of the Chemistry Department (1500 Chemistry) is needed for enrollment in this section.

Advisory Prerequisite: Three years of high school math or MATH 105; one year of high school chemistry recommended. Placement by testing, or permission of Chemistry department.

CHEM 402 is a second-term course in inorganic chemistry at the undergraduate level. The goals of the course are two-fold. On the one hand, it will build upon the concepts presented in the earlier course. Topics included here will emphasize the interrelations of ideas presented earlier in the curriculum. For example, discussion can include the relation between oxidation and reduction and acidity, periodic trends in acids and bases, the relation of hard and soft ideas to molecular orbital theory, periodic trends in standard reduction potentials, the relation of molecular structure to conductivity and magnetism. The key topics to be covered in this portion of the course include acid-base chemistry, theories of bonding, periodic properties and d-metal complexes. The course goes on to cover additional topics selected from issues in catalysis, bioinorganic chemistry, structure-property relations, solid state chemistry, organometallic chemistry, kinetics of organometallic reactions, f-block compounds, electron deficient clusters, and quantum models of structure and bonding. The course has three lectures per week. There will be 1-3 exams and a final. Weekly homework problems will be assigned.

Advisory Prerequisite: CHEM 302, and 461/462.

Instructor: Zuiderweg,Erik R P; homepage

FA 2007
Credits: 3
Reqs: BS

This course is the first of a two-term Biophysical Chemistry series BIOPHYS 520/521, but it can be taken as stand-alone course as well. BIOPHYS 520 will introduce and explain the physicochemical properties of biological macromolecules and their complexes, mostly in solution. The course offers an overview of protein and nucleic acid structures. Intra- and inter-molecular forces, helix-coil transitions, and protein folding will be treated in a thermodynamical context.

Thermodynamics of solutions, configurational statistics, ligand interactions, multi-site interactions, and cooperativity are treated in depth. Kinetics and thermodynamics of protein-ligand binding are discussed. The role of dynamics in protein function is introduced.

Currently, biophysical, biochemical, and pharmacochemical research literature is full with papers interpreting the properties of biological macromolecules on the basis of their three-dimensional structure. This course will expand on that concept by offering a rigorous background in energetics, folding, interactions, and dynamics. As such the course is important to any student who has to deal with the concepts of biomolecular function and structure such as biochemists, molecular biophysicists, mathematical biologists, and molecular pharmacologists. This course will also serve as a basis for the graduate student who will be specializing in any of these topics for thesis research.

CHEM 598 — IGERT Res Rotation
Section 001, IND

FA 2007
Credits: 3

In this program, we are seeking to bring together disciplines that are concerned with materials on a scale from the nanoscopic to the microscopic. These length scales for materials bridge the gap between the molecular (chemical) and the micron scale of devices. Chemists are increasingly concerned with complex "supramolecular" arrays, whereas the electronics engineers strive to decrease the sizes of their devices to molecular dimensions. The length scales associated with these disciplines are converging. Unfortunately, the language and laboratory skills that have evolved at the two extremes are quite different, making communication difficult. We envision a program that brings together these disciplines, creates a common language, and will produce a new generation of students skilled in molecularly designed materials. The course helps students establish "critical literacy" in areas outside their core expertise is our proposed research group rotation (RGR). In the RGR, a student will select 3 research mentors with whom three, short-term research projects will be carried out. Each project will include a definition of the problem, a literature search, some laboratory work, and a final written report The student must interview a minimum of 5 prospective research mentors before choosing the three RGR mentors. The RGR student will take part in the full life of the host research laboratory, including participating in all group meetings, seminar activities, etc. of the host laboratory/department. At least one of the three research rotations must be outside the students home department and may include a summer term at a participating industrial or government laboratory.

CHEM 895 — Research in Chemistry
Section 001, IND

FA 2007
Credits: 1 — 8

Research, the core of Michigan's Ph.D. program, involves applying state-of-the-art experimental techniques and theoretical frameworks toward developing a complete understanding of the nature of chemical and biological systems. Although you will be immersed in your chosen area of concentration, you will be encouraged to pursue an interdisciplinary approach to research. As the questions chemists ask become more complex, our vision must focus beyond fundamental chemical sciences into the interface with other disciplines. Joint studies are offered in many areas such as medicinal chemistry, macromolecular science, chemical physics and biophysics. Research groups in the department are organized into several areas:

ANALYTICAL CHEMISTRY. The development of cutting-edge techniques and their application to real-world analytical problems are the research domains of this group at Michigan. Faculty and student research focuses on immunoassay development; chemical sensors; high-speed chromatographic and electrophoretic separations; mass spectrometry; solid-state NMR, vibrational spectroscopy; and spectroscopic imaging. Faculty and students collaborate regularly with biomedical and industrial scientists to tackle difficult analytical challenges in fields ranging from clinical analysis and gene sequencing to chemical process control and environmental monitoring.

CHEMICAL BIOLOGY. Chemical Biology studies the fundamental chemical principles that govern all biological systems. The Chemistry Department at Michigan is home to an exciting multidisciplinary program at the interface between Chemistry and Biology. Synthesis, measurement, and theory of biological molecules (including proteins and nucleic acids) are important components of the program. Particular areas of expertise are Metallo-Biochemistry, Biological Catalysis, Biomolecular Structure & Function, Chemical Genetics & Bioorganic Chemistry, and Chemical Imaging & Sensors. Research in these areas often involves the synthesis of a particular ligand as a probe of biological function, or the use of chemical, biophysical, molecular biological, and genetic methods to modify and examine biomolecular structure and function. Michigan is one of a select group of universities nationwide funded by the National Institutes of Health specifically to train graduate students in this exciting and interfacial research area that spans the departments of Chemistry, Biological Chemistry, and Medicinal Chemistry. The Chemical Biology program at Michigan has pioneered the department wide research course system that provides first year students with the opportunity to work in two or three different laboratories before selecting a research mentor. For more information see: http://www.umich.edu/~chembio/

INORGANIC CHEMISTRY. Inorganic chemists at Michigan pursue a broad array of research topics primarily focused in the areas of bioinorganic and materials chemistry. Current research groups have interests in supramolecular, surface, solid state and polymer chemistry. Objectives include: the design and study of organic-based zeolites and superconductors; microelectronic device structure and reactivity; fire-resistant, liquid-crystalline, and pre-ceramic polymers; catalysts used for oxidation, desulfurization and polymerization of hydrocarbons; high-temperature superconductors; non-linear optical and magnetic materials. There is also a strong interest in bioinorganic chemistry, studies of metal catalyzed reactions in photosynthesis, in elucidating the chemical mechanism of nitrogenase, and in de novo metalloprotein design. Organometallic chemistry, as applied to the activation or recognition of small molecules, represents another area of interest and is often related to biochemical, materials or catalysis themes.

MATERIALS CHEMISTRY. Materials chemistry at Michigan combines well-grounded training in chemical sciences and experiences in the real world of materials. Novel paradigms for the synthesis of monomers for polymeric substances have been undertaken with a keen eye for their metal ligating properties. Whole classes of new substances with unusual thermal, mechanical, electrical and catalytic properties are currently under investigation. Fundamental investigations of the structure and bonding of adsorbed species on surfaces are providing promising leads on corrosion phenomena and new concepts and structures in the design of sensors. Theoretical and experimental studies in supramolecular architecture have led to the development of organic zeolites that have changed the traditional concepts regarding zeolites. Relationships between molecular structure and chemical reactivity are being exploited in designing highly reactive organometallic and metallo-organic precursors for the low temperature synthesis of magnetic, electronic, and structural ceramics. Michigan's program in Materials Chemistry was recently awarded an IGERT (Integrated Graduate Education and Research Training Program) grant from the National Science Foundation to help train the next generation of chemists with interest in materials. For more information see: http://www.umich.edu/~mater/igert.html

ORGANIC CHEMISTRY. Research in organic chemistry at Michigan is broad in scope yet rigorous in approach. Faculty interests include the development of new synthetic methods for the assembly of complex organic molecules in a stereocontrolled fashion; the synthesis of natural (and unnatural) products with unique biological properties and biomedical significance; the design and synthesis of molecular probes of biochemical function; and the preparation of polymers and other molecules of potential use in new materials applications. Organometallic chemistry using both transition metals and main group elements is an active area of research, spanning the range from synthetic methods development to the design of novel promoters of polymerization. A number of industrially sponsored fellowships in the area of organic chemistry are awarded each year to students in the program.

PHYSICAL CHEMISTRY. Research in physical chemistry at Michigan is aimed at developing a comprehensive and fundamental understanding of chemical phenomena, building on a solid foundation in quantum mechanics, statistical mechanics, and chemical kinetics. Current faculty efforts involve the design and application of novel theoretical and experimental methods, from the use of EXAFS, EPR, and solid-state and solution NMR, to the development of theoretical and computational models; from the employment of ultra-high vacuum techniques to the application of microwave, X-ray, gamma-ray, and ultrafast laser spectroscopy. The ubiquitous nature of chemistry leads to exploration in a diverse range of areas, including the study of critical phenomena, non-linear systems, complexity theory, and the excitations and chemical processes that occur at surfaces, in nanostructures, in low-dimensional solids, in the atmosphere, in isolated small molecules and clusters, and in biological systems.
