Chemistry-Study and teaching; Spectroscopy, Nuclear magnetic resonance;
Experiment designed to introduce the fundamental principles and practice of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), a form of NMR spectroscopy, by obtaining and examining a two-dimensional image of the stem or bud from a plant.
Chemistry-Study and teaching; Spectroscopy, Nuclear magnetic resonance
Experiment previously used in the course and focused on selective irradiation and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), specifically involving homonuclear decoupling and the NOE (nuclear Overhauser enhancement) difference experiment.

Chemistry-Study and teaching; Voltammetry; Electrochemistry; Solution (Chemistry)
Experiment with the goal of gaining an understanding of anodic stripping voltammetry and an understanding of the factors involved in performing quantitative analytical determinations, through the determinations of amounts of copper.
Chemistry-Study and teaching; Wilderness areas; Landscapes
Handout on art and the wilderness, with examples of pieces of artwork, an essay by Rebecca Solnit, and material on the Hudson River School. The handout is from the 2006 version of the ID, Critical Inquiry course.
Chemistry-Study and teaching; Handouts; Molecules; Conformational analysis
Description of how to use the software involved in many of the exercises for Chemistry 164, focusing on answers to frequently asked questions on how to search for conformers in the program Spartan along with a help file from Wavefunction.
