santa monica college catalog 2018–2019 students taking chemistry 11 and 12 must have access to the internet to complete class assignments this course is a continuation of chem 11 topics covered include kinetics equilibrium acid-base chemistry precipitation reactions coordination chemistry thermodynamics and electrochemistry 181 organic qualitative analysis and various methods of analysis separation and purification of mixtures chem 31 biochemistry i 5 units transfer uc csu igetc area 5a physical sciences lab • prerequisite math 31 or math 49 this one-semester course is designed for students preparing for studies in nursing or related allied health professions topics include measurements unit conversions atomic and molecular structure chemical reactions and equations gases solutions and acid/base chemistry there will be a special emphasis on properties and reactions of biologically relevant compounds this course is not equivalent to chem 10 and does not meet the prerequisite requirement for chem 11 transfer uc csu igetc area 5a physical sciences lab • prerequisite chemistry 21 • skills advisory chemistry 22 this course is a survey of biochemistry introducing the student to the structures and functions of important classes of biochemical compounds as well as to the central reactions of metabolism the main topics include the structure and function of proteins carbohydrates and lipids the catalysis kinetics and regulation of enzymes and the reactions of glycolysis the citric acid cycle electron transport/oxidative phosphorylation and gluconeogenesis the laboratory section of the course provides an introduction to biochemistry lab procedures including titration peptide analysis spectroscopy spectrophotometry column chromatography gel-electrophoresis the kinetic analysis of enzymecatalyzed reactions and internet based informatics tools chem 21 organic chemistry i chem 88a independent studies in chemistry chem 19 fundamentals of general organic and biological chemistry 5 units 5 units chem 22 organic chemistry ii 4 units transfer uc csu igetc area 5a physical sciences • prerequisite chemistry 21 maximum uc credit for chemistry 22 and chemistry 24 combined is 5 units this course is a continuation of chem 21 with emphasis on the remaining functional groups and types of reactions also included is an introduction to the organic chemistry of biochemical compounds chem 22 includes lecture and discussion the second semester of organic chemistry laboratory is a separate course chem 24 chem 21 and 22 constitute two semesters of organic chemistry with one semester of organic chemistry laboratory chem 21 22 and 24 constitute two semesters of organic chemistry with two semesters of laboratory chem 24 organic chemistry ii laboratory 2 units transfer uc csu igetc area 5a physical sciences lab • prerequisite/corequisite chemistry 22 maximum uc credit for chemistry 22 and chemistry 24 combined is 5 units this course is the second semester of organic chemistry laboratory the laboratory work involves microscale and miniscale synthesis structure determination investigation of reaction mechanism and qualitative analysis the lectures will discuss the theory and techniques that relate to the experiments that are performed including nmr ir 1 unit transfer csu please see “independent studies” section chem 88b independent studies in chemistry 2 units transfer csu please see “independent studies” section chinese additional hours to be arranged in the modern language lab for elementary chinese most sections require the use of a computer with internet access for class resources and or to complete assignments chnese 1 elementary chinese 1 5 units transfer uc csu igetc foreign language required for uc only satisfies global citizenship • prerequisite none using an audio-lingual approach this course teaches pronunciation vocabulary and grammar fundamentals as essential elements in reading writing and understanding elementary chinese the course also covers necessary culture customs philosophy and history which serve as keys to studying the chinese language language lab is required chnese 2 elementary chinese 2 5 units transfer uc csu igetc area 3b humanities foreign language required for uc only satisfies global citizenship • prerequisite none • advisory chinese 1 this course is a continuation of chinese 1 which covers elementary grammar it provides students with further basic oral and writing skills while acquainting them with the language it also includes the reading of simplified texts with emphasis on oral expression and further study of chinese history and culture language lab is required course descriptions transfer uc csu c-id chem 150 igetc area 5a physical sciences lab • prerequisite chemistry 12 this course is a systematic introduction to the chemistry of carbon compounds it encompasses theory and reactions of hydrocarbons and functional group derivatives included are bonding and structure nomenclature stereochemistry synthesis mechanism and spectroscopic analysis the laboratory work focuses on techniques of synthesis isolation purification and analysis.
