Inorganic Capstone Lab
(Advanced Synthesis Lab)
Professor Mitch Smith, Rm 406, 5-9715 x166
Dr. Chrysoula Vasileiou, Rm 538B, 5-9715 x125
CEM 415 is a capstone course that is an alternative to independent undergraduate research (CEM 419). It has some of the same research flavor but in a more structured laboratory environment. The focus of the course is on inorganic/organometallic and organic synthetic chemistry. Of course, any synthesis must be tied to advanced spectroscopic methods for sample characterizations. These methods will include NMR, variable temperature NMR, electronic absorption and emission spectroscopy, and FT-IR.
Student credit hours for the course are allocated entirely to laboratory time. Additional instruction will provide the background material for the spectroscopy and clarify synthetic procedures needed for the lab.
3 Sections of this course will be taught this semester:
Section 1 : Tu, Th 8:00–11:50 a.m.
Section 2: M, W 12:40–4:30 p.m.
Section 3: Tu, Th 12:40–4:30 p.m.
