3 Units/30 Hours
This course introduces basic general inorganic and organic chemistry through the examination of chemical elements and compounds. Content will include the properties of matter, the periodic table, atoms, molecules, and their structures, chemical bonds, solutions, phase states and their properties, and chemical reactions and catalysis. The course will also introduce the concepts of organic chemistry, carbon and hydrogen, and simple molecule structure, both chains, and rings that carbon and hydrogen can form. This course will define the basic characteristics of Organic Chemistry, the functional groups, and the bonding characteristics of carbon and its relationship to biochemistry. The Biochemistry contents will be more thoroughly explored in WM212.
