    Class Description

    CEM415 is a capstone course that focuses on advanced synthetic organic and inorganic chemistry. During this class you are expected to work by yourselves to complete the synthesis of a variety or organic and inorganic compounds. In addition, all products and their synthetic intermediates must be fully characterized using advanced spectroscopic methods that include NMR, electronic absorption and emission spectroscopy and FT-IR.

    Student credit hours for the course are allocated entirely to laboratory time.

    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.
