General Chemistry II

SCU student looking through textbook

Description: The General Chemistry II course further develops the concepts of chemical bonding in order to appreciate the size, shape, polarity and macroscopic behavior of molecules. The processes of oxidation-reduction will be explained, particularly as they apply to biological systems. Solution chemistry will be introduced, stressing the concepts of equilibrium and colligative properties. Acid/base chemistry, including titrimetry, buffers, and pH will be studied. Nuclear chemistry in the evolution of matter will be considered. Organic chemistry will be introduced as a corollary to concepts presented in the college chemistry course.

Registration for in-classroom or hybrid course offerings include lecture (CHEM216) and lab (CHEM216L).
