Homepage for Chemistry 51, Accelerated General Chemistry. It provides links to and information on the course description, handouts, problem sets, sample examinations, laboratory experiments, the syllabus, etc.
An annotated bibliography for Biochemistry, with links to sources of chemical data on the World Wide Web involving general resources, protein structure, the structure and chemistry of nucleic acids, enzymology and protein chemistry.
Chemistry-Study and teaching; Gas chromatography; Mass spectrometry
Experiment involving the isolation, concentration, separation and identification of the volatile components of a foodstuff (via headspace analysis, capillary gas chromatography, and mass spectra measurements).
Chemistry-Study and teaching; Handouts; Stoichiometry; Chemical equilibrium
Introduction. Part II of the handout will apply the approach introduced in Part I to acid-base chemistry. We shall focus on two cases where the application of stoichiometry leads to great simplifications: strong acids which are essentially 100%...
Chemistry-Study and teaching; Homework; Molecular structure; Molecules-Models
This is the Molecular Zoo entry for 2-chloroethanol and therefore describes the detailed three-dimensional, gas-phase structure of 2-chloroethanol produced by instrumental and computational methods. It also offers a critical comparison of these...
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.
