Chemistry and Biochemistry

The Chemistry and Biochemistry department offers the following courses:

CHEM 40477 Nanoscience & Technology

This course focuses on the unique scientific phenomena that accrue to matter with characteristic nanometer-scale dimensions and on the technologies which can be constructed from them. Special nanostructures will be addressed.

CHEM 60526 Biochemical Equilibria

This is a new graduate course offering, the first in a series of four courses to be taught during fall semester -- 60526, 60527, 60528, 60529. Discussion and analysis of equilibria underlying biochemical processes. Topics include intermolecular binding interactions, conformational equilibria, coupling between linked processes, and environmental dependencies. Advanced theory supplemented with literature and data simulations. 

CHEM 60527 Protein Structure and Folding

This is a new graduate course offering, the second in a series of four sequential courses to be taught during fall semester -- 60526, 60527, 60528, 60529. Discussion of protein structure and folding, including the driving forces for folding and stability, folding kinetics, the effects of molecular chaperones and other cellular components on protein folding in vivo, and protein misfolding and aggregation, including amyloid.

CHEM 60529 Enzyme and Coenzyme Mechanisms

This is a new graduate course offering, the fourth in a series of four sequential courses to be taught during fall semester -- 60526, 60527, 60528, 60529. Survey of the chemistry underlying biochemical reactions, including the role of co-enzymes, redox chemistry, and the chemical mechanisms behind biological catalysis.

CHEM 60610 Organometallic Chemistry

Structure and reactions of organometallic compounds and applications to synthetic and catalytic reactions.
