CHEM 131 General Chemistry I with Lab
Chemistry Placement Exam required for all incoming first-year and transfer students.

CHEM 241 Synthesis/Reactivity I w/Lab
The major focus of this course is on the reactivities of organic and inorganic molecules; this is an extension of the study of the covalent bond that was studied in Chemistry 141. Topics include reaction types and mechanisms, stereochemistry, nomenclature, and spectroscopic methods. Laboratory work involves the synthesis, analysis and identification of organic and inorganic molecules. Three hours classroom and four hours laboratory per week. Prerequisite: 132 or 141.
