Course Offerings

Chemistry    503 3 (crs.)
Biochemistry I: Clinical Emphases
Topics include: amino acids, proteins, nucleic acids, bioenergetics, carbohydrates, lipids, hormones, vitamins, electrolytes, and xenobiotics. Clinical correlations will be presented which emphasize: biochemistry, pathophysiology, and quantification of body fluid constituents. Prerequisite: Chemistry 335 with a grade of C or better. 303/503 (Fall)
Chemistry    504 1 (crs.)
Biochemistry I: Clinical Emphases Laboratory
Laboratory experiences are correlated to topics presented in Chemistry 303/503. Techniques include aspects of spectrophotometry, electrophoresis, chromatography, immunoassays, fluorescence, and computer applications. A significant amount of writing is expected. Prerequisite: Completion of or concurrent enrollment in Chemistry 303 or 503. 304/504 (Fall)
Chemistry    535 4 (crs.)
Organic Chemistry II
A continuation of Chemistry 235 which includes a discussion of alcohols, phenols, ethers, carbonyl-containing compounds, amines, anilines, carbohydrates and proteins. Particular emphasis is placed on the mechanistic and theoretical aspects of the various topics covered. Infrared, nuclear magnetic resonance, and mass spectroscopes are discussed in a qualitative manner. Laboratory includes advanced synthesis work and introductory, qualitative organic analysis emphasizing modern spectral techniques. Prerequisite: Chemistry 235 with a grade of C or better.  335/535 (3+3)
Chemistry    560 1 – 3 (crs.)
Special Topics
A chemistry course on a topic not covered in the department’s curriculum. This course may be repeated with different content. Each time it is offered, the topic will be announced in the class schedule. This course will not offer topics which are covered by existing courses.  Graduate students will be required to do an extra project or paper.  Prerequisites: Consent of instructor. 360/560
Chemistry    635 3 (crs.)
Interpretive Spectroscopy
The application of spectral methods to the characterization of the structure of inorganic and organic compounds will be presented.  Specific topics will include infrared, Raman, ultraviolet and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopes and mass spectrometry. The laboratory will involve the use of these techniques to identify the structure of unknown samples. Prerequisite: Chemistry 335/535 and Chemistry 334. 435/635 (2+3)
