fall 2018 graduate courses

CH 380L Inorganic Reactions and Structures

Prof. Simon Humphrey, TTh 3:30-5 pm. Focuses on the electronic structure of molecules and complexes, and how such information can predict important properties such as chemical reactivity, spectroscopy, and magnetism.

CH 381M Advanced Analytical Chemistry

Prof. Jason Shear, MW 5-6:30 pm. The goal of this course is to provide a survey of modern analytical chemistry with an emphasis on fundamental principles that govern the sensitivity, selectivity, and speed of analysis. Further emphasis will be placed on condensed-phase chemistry, chemical equilibria, optical and mass spectrometry, electroanalytical chemistry and chemical separations. Recent developments in these areas will also be discussed.

CH 382K Introduction to Quantum Mechanics

Prof. Dmitrii Makarov, TTh 8-9:30 am.

CH 382L Statistical Mechanics

Prof. Ron Elber. TTh 12:30-2pm.

CH 386J Physical Organic Chemistry

Prof. Eric Anslyn, TTh 12:30-2 pm. 

CH 390K Bioinorganic Chemistry

Prof. Michael Rose, TTH 9:30-11am. Explores the roles of transition metals in biology, mostly with respect to protein structure, function and catalysis. Examines established and developing methods of spectroscopy used to probe the geometrical and electronic structure of metal ions in proteins. Analyzes modern areas of study in bio-inorganic chemistry, especially relating to the roles of metals in metalloenzymes, but also including emerging topics such as metallodrugs, metal-based imaging agents, and molecular sensors. The principles of transition metal chemistry will be explored, expanded and demonstrated in the context of biological systems.

CH 390L Mass Spectrometry

Prof. Jennifer Brodbelt, MW 9-10:30 am. 

 

CH 391 Chemical and Synthetic Biology

Prof. Adriam Keatinge-Clay, TTh 8-9:30 am. 

Topics include enzymatic reaction mechanisms and how they can be manipulated using tools from both chemistry and molecular biology.
