What you can learn.

  • Apply chemical principles in general and organic chemistry to the physical and biological world
  • Become familiar with chemical notations and conventions
  • Understand principles and laws of phase changes, thermochemistry, and thermodynamics
  • Identify the general classes and naming of organic molecules
  • Use molecular modeling software to illustrate molecular structures and their relative energies

About this course:

This course covers phase changes; thermochemistry; first, second, and third laws of thermodynamics; free energy changes; electrochemistry and its role as an energy source; chemical kinetics, including catalysis, reaction mechanisms, and enzymes; coordination compounds; general classes and naming of organic molecules; structure, conformations, and relative energies of organic molecules; application of thermodynamics and kinetics to organic and biochemical reactions; and use of molecular modeling software to illustrate molecular structures and their relative energies. Transferable for UC credit.
