This course is designed to introduce the principles of physical chemistry to students primarily interested in the biochemical and biological aspects of chemistry.
This course includes topics of physical chemistry presented from the viewpoint of their application to biochemical problems. Included are discussions of thermodynamics and biochemical energetics, properties of solutions and electrolytes, electrochemical applications to biological oxidation-reduction reactions, chemical and enzyme kinetics.
The prerequisites for this course are CHEM A212 with a minimum grade of C and MATH A200 with a minimum grade of C. These prerequisites are strictly enforced.
This course does not have a lab component.
