2021-2022 Undergraduate Catalog

CHEM 230 Organic Chemistry for the Life Sciences

One-term sophomore level service course which focuses on the structure and reactivity of the functional groups which are directly relevant to biochemistry. Consolidates the relevant fundamental principles of organic chemistry with less depth than the CHEM 231/232 two-term organic sequence, and will prepare students for the one-term CHEM 360 (Essentials of Biochemistry) course. Each topic will include biologically relevant examples and applications. 

Prerequisite: CHEM 112 with a grade of C or better. 

Parallel: CHEM 241

Not open to students who have credit in CHEM 231, or chemistry majors and chemistry teaching majors.
