CHEM 426    Organic Chemistry with Biological Emphasis    4 Units

Prerequisite: CHEM 425 with a grade of "C" or better
General Education: AA/AS Area IV; CSU Area B1; CSU Area B3; IGETC Area 5A
Course Transferable to UC/CSU
Hours: 54 hours LEC ; 54 hours LAB
Description: This course, a continuation of CHEM 425, focuses on the preparation, properties, reactions, and spectroscopy (IR, NMR, mass and UV) of organic compounds, including benzene and benzene derivatives, aldehydes, ketones, dicarbonyl compounds, carboxylic acids, and amines. Applications in the biological sciences are emphasized. An introduction to the chemistry of biological macromolecule (lipids, carbohydrates, proteins, and nucleic acids) is also presented. Laboratory work includes qualitative analysis, multi-step organic synthesis, instrumentation (IR and GC), protein electrophoresis, and investigations in photochemistry, dyes, and biological macromolecules.

CHEM 495    Independent Studies in Chemistry    1-3 Units

Prerequisite: None
Course Transferable to UC/CSU
Hours: 162 hours LEC
Description: UC Transfer credit will be awarded only after the course has been evaluated by the enrolling UC campus. The units completed for this course cannot be counted toward the minimum 60 units required for admissions.*This course involves an individual student or small groups of students in study, research, or activities beyond the scope of regular offered courses, pursuant to an agreement among college, faculty members and students. Independent studies in chemistry offers students a chance to do research and/or experimentation that is more typical of industry and graduate student work.
