CHEM 400    General Chemistry    5 Units

Prerequisite: CHEM 300 with a grade of "C" or better completed within one year prior to enrollment in CHEM 400 or placement through the assessment process (ACS California Chemistry Diagnostic Exam) completed within one year prior to enrollment in CHEM 400 (students having taken CHEM 310, CHEM 305 or another chemistry course must complete the assessment process within one year prior to enrollment in CHEM 400) AND MATH 120 or MATH 124 with a grade of "C" or better, or placement through the assessment process.
Advisory: All students enrolling in this course are strongly advised to take the chemistry and math assessment exams administered through the Assessment Center, regardless of prior coursework. These exams provide a better idea of a student's readiness for college level general chemistry, since they measure the actual chemistry and math capabilities of the student as they enroll in the course, rather than at the completion of their preparatory coursework.

CHEM 426    Organic Chemistry with Biological Emphasis    4 Units

Prerequisite: CHEM 420 and 425 with grades 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, spectroscopy ( IR, C-13 NMR, and UV), and mass spectrometry of organic compounds, including benzene and benzene derivatives, aldehydes, ketones, dicarbonyl compounds, carboxylic acids, carboxylic acid derivatives, and amines. Applications in the biological sciences are emphasized. Biological macromolecule organic chemistry ( carbohydrates, and proteins) and the organic chemistry of metabolic pathways are also presented. Laboratory work includes qualitative analysis, multi-step organic synthesis, analytical use of instrumentation (ATR-FTIR, GC and GC-MS), natural product extraction, and instrumental characterization of compounds extracted.

CHEM 495    Independent Studies in Chemistry    1-3 Units

Prerequisite: None.
Course Transferable to UC/CSU
Hours: 162 hours LEC
Description: 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. 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 towards the minimum 60 units required for admissions.
