Courses Available - Winter 2017
ADVANCED MAIN GROUP CHEMISTRY
CHEM-4403-001 (3) Monday / Wednesday / Friday 11:30-12:20
Aspects of main group chemistry are covered in this course, including electron-deficient compounds, main group organometallics, and ring systems and polymers. Focus is placed on bonding descriptions of main group compounds, as well as synthetic methods and characterization techniques (NMR, EPR, mass spectrometry, X-ray diffraction). The industrial applications of main group compounds are discussed.
DIRECTED STUDIES IN CHEMISTRY
This course is designed to allow students the opportunity to conduct individual research under the supervision of a faculty member. The study may take the form of a literature review, may be experimental in nature, or may involve the analysis of existing data. Note: Permission to enrol is dependent on the availability of a suitable faculty member AND students must obtain written permission from the Chair of Chemistry in addition to the prerequisite.
CHEM-3611-001 (3) Tuesday / Thursday 11-30-12:45
This course provides an understanding of how and why chemicals may damage humans and other organisms. Basic principles of toxicology and environmental chemical exposure are covered, and detailed analysis is presented of the body's defences against toxicants and the physiological and/or biochemical mechanisms by which toxicants cause effects. Toxicological modeling and environmental risk assessment are introduced. Students apply these principles to explore emerging topics of interest in their own discipline.
INTERMEDIATE BIOCHEMISTRY II: INTERMEDIARY METABOLISM
CHEM-3503-003 (3) Tuesday / Thursday 8:30-9:45
This course examines major catabolic and anabolic pathways, and their regulation and integration.
ORGANIC STRUCTURE DETERMINATION
CHEM-3204-001 (3) Tuesday / Thursday 10:00-11:15
This course teaches the application of spectroscopic techniques (1D and 2D multinuclear NMR, IR, MS, UV) to organic structure determination. Classical methods still in common use are briefly covered.
METHODS OF CHEMICAL ANALYSIS
CHEM-3302-001 (3) Monday / Wednesday / Friday 9:30-10:20
This course introduces students to the procedures of analytical chemistry including sampling, preparation of the sample for analysis, instrument calibration, and statistical treatment of data. Specific analytical methods discussed include potentiometry and atomic and molecular spectroscopy. This involves a series of analyses using instrumental techniques.
INTRODUCTION TO BIOCHEMISTRY
CHEM-2502 (3) Monday / Wednesday / Friday 11;30-12:20
This is an introductory course in biochemistry. Topics include: the structural characteristics and biological properties of biomolecules (carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, and nucleic acids); basic enzymology; and metabolism. Examples of the application of the principles of biochemistry to the study and treatment of human diseases are discussed.
