CHE 211 Chemical Structure and Reactivity
This is the second course in chemistry for most science concentrators (chemistry majors and minors, and pre-health students). Topics include detailed considerations of chemical thermodynamics, equilibrium and electrochemistry; the molecular orbital theory of chemical bonding; and main group and transition metal chemistry. The laboratory will feature experiments in calorimetry, electrochemistry, quantitative analysis, descriptive inorganic chemistry, and a multi-week inorganic synthesis project. Three lectures and one laboratory each week. This course is offered in the spring semester.
Prerequisite: CHE 111.
