Date:

Sept 2000

 

Course Revision #1

I. Give complete UMM catalog entry (deletions in strikethru font, additions underlined)(see instructions)

Chem 1111f. Honors: General Chemistry I. (Sci-L; 4 cr; SP–1 yr high school chem, ¶Math 0901 or placement beyond Math 0901 using ACT/placement exam score; 3 yrs high school math recommended)

Brief review of stoichiometry, atomic structure, periodicity, and nomenclature. Properties of solids, liquids, and gases; solutions; thermodynamics. Lab exercises in general chemistry. Assumes substantial background in high school chemistry and mathematics. (3 hrs lect and rec, 3 hrs lab)

II. Rationale (see instructions):

Course is no longer taught. Students were completely occupied with the introductory content of the course and were unable to relate to the concepts from the standpoint of honors.

Course Revision #2

I. Give complete UMM catalog entry (deletions in strikethru font, additions underlined)(see instructions)

Chem 3701. Inorganic Chemistry. (Sci; 3 4 cr; prereq 3501)

The periodic table; models of structure and bonding of main group elements and transition metals, survey of nomenclature, symmetry and bonding theory of inorganic coordination compounds. with emphasis on coordination compounds. (4 hrs lect)

II. Rationale (see instructions):

Four credits reflects desire to make advanced chemistry courses more uniform in terms of credits and lecture hours. Other changes are minor.

Course Revision #3

I. Give complete UMM catalog entry (deletions in strikethru font, additions underlined)(see instructions)

Chem 4751. Variable Topics in Advanced Inorganic Chemistry. (Sci; 4 Cr,; prereq 3701 or #)

Structure and reactions of coordination compounds, inorganic cages and clusters, the lanthanide and actinide series. Bonding and properties of coordination compounds. (4 hrs lect)

II. Rationale (see instructions):

This has been a topics course in the past. It should be a regular course offering.

Course Revision #4

I. Give complete UMM catalog entry (deletions in strikethru font, additions underlined)(see instructions)

Chem 3101f. Analytical Chemistry. (Sci-L; 4 cr; prereq 1102 or 1112 1102H)

The application of chemical equilibria to chemical analysis with emphasis on the fundamental quantitative aspects of analytical chemistry.Aqueous chemical equilibrium for Acid-base, oxidation-reduction, and complexometric chemical systems titrations, introduction to electrochemical and spectrophotometric analyses. fundamentals of quantitative analytical chemistry; titrimetric and gravimetric methods of analysis; basic chemical instrumentation with emphasis on spectrophotometric methods of analysis. (3 hrs lect, 3 hrs lab)

II. Rationale (see instructions):

Reflects an update of the topics and emphases of the course.

Course Revision #5

I. Give complete UMM catalog entry (deletions in strikethru font, additions underlined)(see instructions)

Chem 3111. Instrumental Analysis. (Sci-L; 4 cr; prereq 3101)

Principles of chemical instrumentation and instrumental methods of analysis; extensive lab work using chromatographic, spectrophotometric, and electrochemical methods of analysis. (4 hrs lect)

II. Rationale (see instructions):

Editorial addition.

 

 

 

Course Revision #6

I. Give complete UMM catalog entry (deletions in strikethru font, additions underlined)(see instructions)

Chem 3811. Macromolecules. (Sci; 3 4 cr; prereq 2302, 3501 or #)

The molecular structure and bulk properties of macromolecules. Viscoelasticity. Molar masses of polymers. Polymer synthesis. Kinetics and mechanism. Macromolecular conformations. (4 hrs lect)

II. Rationale (see instructions):

Four credits reflects desire to make advanced chemistry courses more uniform in terms of credits and lecture hours.

Course Revision #7

I. Give complete UMM catalog entry (deletions in strikethru font, additions underlined)(see instructions)

Chem 430x 4352,f. Variable Topics in Organic Chemistry: Synthesis. (Sci; 2-5 4 cr; repeatable when topic changes; QP–3332; SP–2302)

Study of the preparation of biologically active molecules, emphasizing the application of transition metal chemistry to modern synthetic methods. Advanced topics in synthetic organic, organometallic, or bio-organic chemistry as shaped by student interest. (4 hrs lect)

II. Rationale (see instructions):

This has been a topics course in the past. It should be a regular course offering.

Course Revision #8

I. Give complete UMM catalog entry (deletions in strikethru font, additions underlined)(see instructions)

Chem 3801f. History of Chemistry. (Sci; 3 4 cr; no elective cr for chem majors or minors; QP–3330; SP– prereq 2301 or #)

Theories of atoms, elements, and principles. Alchemy. Pneumatic chemistry. Phlogiston. Lavoisier and the chemical revolution. Dalton and atomic weight scales. Physical and chemical atoms. Cannizzaro and the Karlsruhe Congress. Einstein, Perrin, and the reality of atoms. Niels Bohr and the periodic table. (3 4 hrs lect)

II. Rationale (see instructions):

Four credits reflects desire to make advanced chemistry courses more uniform in terms of credits and lecture hours. Not allowing this course for credit to majors or minors had the effect of devaluing its presence. It should count as any other chemistry course.

Course Revision #9

I. Give complete UMM catalog entry (deletions in strikethru font, additions underlined)(see instructions)

Chem 3502s. Physical Chemistry II. (Sci; 3 4 cr; QP–3532; SP– prereq 3501)

Introduction to quantum theory. Atomic and molecular structure. Spectroscopy. Group theory. Introduction to statistical mechanics. Chemical dynamics. Topics drawn from the liquid and solid states, advanced kinetics, electrochemistry, and surfaces. (3 4 hrs lect)

II. Rationale (see instructions):

Spectroscopy material moves into spectroscopy course and group theory is inserted. Four credits reflects desire to make advanced chemistry courses more uniform in terms of credits and lecture hours.
