Broad overview of most important facts and principles of organic and biochemistry and interrelationships between these branches of chemistry. May not be taken for credit concurrently with, or following receipt of, credit for CHEM 028, CHEM 042 or CHEM 044. Prerequisite: CHEM 023 or CHEM 031.
Prereqs enforced by the system: CHEM 23 or 31; Must register for a CHEM 026 lab, L01 - L11; $75 fee: Chem Lab Supplies; Open to Degree and CDE students; Cross listed with CHEM 028
This is a one-semester survey of organic chemistry and biochemistry, with about equal time spent on the two disciplines. Covered in the organic chemistry portion are organic functional groups, organic reactions, and nomenclature systems based on these functionalities. The biochemistry portion covers essential biological molecular structures and systems such as carbohydrates, proteins, and lipids.
This course combines a lecture format worth 80% and a lab component worth 20% of the total. In addition to attending lecture, students should expect to spend 3-4 hours per week in consistent study and problem-solving. Solving recommended text problems is the best way to do this.
Students will be evaluated with three mid-term exams, a final exam, and an online (BlackBoard) quiz average, as well as a lab component of the course.
