Instructor Organic Chemistry Laboratory
This course is designed to introduce the student to those basic techniques that are used in the organic chemistry laboratory, e.g., synthesis, isolation of organic compounds from mixtures, identification of organic compounds, etc. The course is especially well suited for students wishing to pursue a research career in organic chemistry and/or other scientific fields.
Instructor Biochemistry I
In the first semester of biochemistry, students learn about the four most important types of biomolecules: proteins, carbohydrates, lipids, and nucleic acids. Particular emphasis is given to the structural and functional aspects of these molecules. Some of the experimental techniques applied to their purification and characterization are also explored.
