CHEM 131 - Chemical Principles II


Chemical Principles II is a continuation of CHEM 130 - Chemical Principles I , where the topics introduced in CHEM 130 are refined and applied to chemically important systems. Topics covered include perspectives in bonding based on the quantum mechanical model of the atom (molecular orbital theory); bonding in the solid state; intermolecular interactions; properties of solutions; reactions in solutions (e.g., acid-base reactions and precipitations); oxidation-reduction processes (electrochemistry); introductions to organic chemistry, main group descriptive chemistry, transition metal and coordination chemistry; and nuclear chemistry. Topics in materials science are included, as time permits. Note that this course is the second course in the two semester sequence required by most professional schools.

Prerequisites: Completion of the Elementary Functions Essential Skill requirement (based upon a sufficiently strong high school background and score on the Mathematics Placement Exam) AND completion of CHEM 130 - Chemical Principles I  with a grade of C or better.
Credit(s): 4
Course Attribute(s):
  • Honors Scholar Course.
  • STEM Perspective Lab Science course for the Dialogues.
