A study of thermochemistry, kinetics, chemical equilibrium, electrochemistry, advanced concepts in chemical bonding, the chemistry of the representative metals and nonmetals, coordination complexes, basic organic chemistry, biochemistry, and nuclear chemistry. Three class hours and three laboratory hours. Prerequisites: CHE 103, MAT 114.

CHE 104R General Chemistry II Recitation (1 EQ)

Optional recitation for CHE 104. Provides the opportunity for students to apply the theories, concepts and problem-solving techniques presented in CHE 104.

CHE 121 Introductory Chemistry (3 credits)

CHE 121 is designed as an introductory chemistry course for non-science majors and would also meet the needs of students who have little or no background in chemistry. CHE 121 is a course that provides the basic chemistry background necessary to continue on to General Chemistry I (CHE 171).  This course is not recommended for Health Science students and will not count toward the Math Science degree (MTS.AS). Students are strongly encouraged to co-register for MAT 114 if they intend to continue on to CHE 171. Prerequisite: MAT-087 and placement into college level reading. 

CHE 121R Introductory Chemistry Recitation (1 credits)

Optional recitation section for CHE 121.  Provides the opportunity for students to apply the theories, concepts and problem-solving techniques presented in CHE 121. Prerequisite: MAT-087 and placement into college level reading. Co-requisite: CHE-121.

CHE 151 Basic Chemistry for the Health Sciences I (3 credits)

A study of chemistry at an introductory level, intended for students in the paramedical sciences (nursing, dental hygiene, respiratory therapy, etc.) Topics include the nature of atoms; ionic and covalent bonding; nomenclature; chemical change and equilibrium; gas laws; properties of water and aqueous solutions; acids, bases and pH; and an introduction to organic and biochemical compounds. This course pre-supposes some knowledge of elementary algebra. Not open to Math-Science students. Prerequisites: College-level reading and placement into MAT 087 or higher.

CHE 151L Basic Chemistry for the Health Sciences Laboratory I (1 credit)

Optional laboratory for CHE 151; illustrative experiments emphasizing the concepts, principles, and techniques presented in CHE 151. Three laboratory hours per week. Prerequisite or co-requisite: CHE 151 and placement into MAT 087 or higher.

CHE 151R Basic Chemistry for the Health Sciences Recitation I (1 EQ)

Optional recitation section intended for students concurrently registered in CHE 151. The recitation provides the opportunity for students to apply the theory, concepts and problem-solving techniques presented in CHE 151.

CHE 152 Basic Chemistry for the Health Sciences II (3 credits)

A study of organic chemistry and biochemistry at the introductory level. Topics include the structure and properties of aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons, functional groups, carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, enzymes, vitamins, and drugs. Not open to Math-Science students. Prerequisite: CHE 151 or CHE 103 and Permission of Instructor. Fall semesters only.

CHE 171 General Chemistry (3 credits)

A study of atomic structure, chemical bonding, stoichiometry, kinetic molecular theory and the states of matter, solutions, ionic reactions, oxidation and reduction, acid and base theories, thermochemistry, molecular geometry, gas laws, and intermolecular forces. Prerequisites: MAT-114 and placement in college level reading. Students are expected to have mastered high school (Regent's) chemistry or successfully completed CHE 121. Students are strongly encouraged to co-register for MAT-143 to be prepared for CHE-172.

CHE 171L General Chemistry I Laboratory (1 credits)

Laboratory for CHE 171. Illustrative experiments emphasizing the concepts, principles, and techniques presented in CHE 171. CHE 171 must be taken previously or concurrently with CHE 171L.
