VC230 – Honors Chemistry


Instructors (Faculty):

Credits: 4 credits

Pre-requisites: 3 years high school math, strong background in high school chemistry


In Vc230, students will be introduced to the physical principles underlying some of the major topics of inorganic and analytical chemistry. These include the gaseous, liquid, and solid states of matter; phase transitions and solutions; electrochemistry and the principles of oxidation-reduction reactions; chemical kinetics and the study of chemical orbitals and chemical bonding; transition metal chemistry and coordination complexes. These topics will be treated from the viewpoint of the experimental scientist, with an emphasis on the application of physical chemical principles to chemical behavior in a broad spectrum of settings.
