An introduction to the major areas of modern chemistry, including organic and biological chemistry; inorganic/materials chemistry and spectroscopy; and physical chemistry/chemical physics. The course is highly recommended for students who plan to enrol in one of the chemistry specialist programs, or who will be including a substantial amount of chemistry in their degree (such as those following a chemistry major or minor program). The combination of CHM151Y1 and CHM249H1 serves as a full year introductory course in organic chemistry with laboratory. (Lab Materials Fee: $50).
Note: CHM151Y1 has a unique Course Community where the undergraduate experience in chemistry is greatly enhanced through a series of workshops, research seminars, tours, outreach opportunities and social activities. 90-minute biweekly Course Community meetings are held during laboratory class hours during alternate weeks to the laboratory sessions. The lab time is reserved for CHM151Y1 activities every week of each semester.
