322 Heterocyclic Chemistry (Outline)
The course consists of a survey of aromatic compounds, focusing mainly on aromatic heterocycles containing one or two heteroatoms. Synthesis, structural aspects, and chemical properties of these compounds will be examined. Some more complex special cases, including purine and pyrimidine systems, will also be included.
Prerequisites: CHEM 220. Three credits and laboratory.

325 Organic Structural Methods  (Outline)
Methods for deducing the structural features of organic compounds will be examined, with a major emphasis on the use of spectroscopic techniques. While the theory and instrumentation of each technique will be presented, the course will focus on the interpretation of spectral data to provide information on functional groups, bonding, and stereochemistry. Use will be made of spectral data correlation charts, compilations and databases. Required for, and restricted to, students in degree programs where chemistry is Science A. Required for the first term of the junior year.
Prerequisites: CHEM 220, PHYS 120. Three credits and tutorial.
- February 2007 -

331 Introduction to Quantum Mechanics (Outline)
The course deals with quantum mechanics and its applications to the structure of atoms and molecules. The topics covered are: the postulates of quantum mechanics and their applications to simple physical systems, including particle in a box; the quantum mechanical model for vibration and rotation of molecules; the hydrogen atom and many electron systems; introduction to the Variation Principle and Hückel’s molecular orbital method.
Prerequisites: CHEM 232. Three credits and lab/tutorial.
- February 2007 -

332 Introduction to Molecular Spectroscopy and Statistical Thermodynamics (Outline)
The course deals with the characterization of patterns of molecular quantized energy levels in rotational, vibrational and electronic spectra of both linear and non-linear molecules. Other topics include: photoelectron, spectroscopy and magnetic resonances; introduction to statistical thermodynamics including partition functions and calculations of various thermodynamics properties, equilibrium constants and rate constants.
Prerequisite: CHEM 331. Three credits and lab/tutorial
- February 2007 -
