CHEM 110 General, Organic, and Biochemistry II (GOBC II) 3 sem. hrs.
This course is specifically designed for students intending to pursue careers in nursing and related fields. This course focuses on basic organic chemistry and fundamental biochemistry. Topics include Lewis structures, physical properties, basic nomenclature, and chemical reactions of the following classes of organic compounds: Hydrocarbons (alkanes, alkenes, alkynes & aromatics), alcohols, ethers, aldehydes, ketones, ester, amides, anhydrides, phosphoesters, thioesters, thioalcohols, and amines. Stereochemistry and acid-base topics are also included. The second half of the course applies the organic chemistry to biochemicals with an emphasis on health-related applications. Topics include: amino acids & proteins, enzymes, carbohydrates, lipids, nucleic acids, vitamins and coenzymes, basic metabolism. Clinical topics include, but are not limited to, diabetes mellitus, clinical isoenzymes, lipoprotein profiles, drug therapies, ethanol metabolism, and others. This course is an organic chemical structure-intensive experience emphasizing structure-function relationships, monomer-polymer relationships and metabolic control systems and disease. Successful completion of CHEM 109 is needed to enter this course. This course does not count toward a chemistry or biology major. Taking the lab course (CHEM 110L) in conjunction with this lecture course is highly recommended. This course is normally offered during the fall & spring semesters and in summer II every year.
