CHM 12901 - General Chemistry With A Biological Focus


Credit Hours: 5.00.  An accelerated and comprehensive one-semester general chemistry course that emphasizes principles that are important in biological systems. This course is designed to cover the essential elements of general chemistry traditionally covered in a two semester series. Topics to be covered include: Stoichiometry and chemical equations; atomic theory and structure; periodic properties; electronegativity; ionic and covalent bonding; non-covalent forces; bond energies; Lewis structures; molecular geometry; gases, liquids, and solids; solutions, quantitative equilibria in aqueous solution; acid/base chemistry and buffers; introductory thermodynamics; oxidation-reduction; electrochemical and membrane potential; colligative properties; chemical and enzyme kinetics; nuclear chemistry; coordination chemistry. One year of high school chemistry is required. Typically offered Fall.Credits: 5.00
