Advanced General Chemistry: Honors Course

Steven L. Bernasek
Robert P. L'Esperance

Selected topics from general chemistry are presented from an advanced point of view. Emphasis is on the conceptual development of electronic structure and bonding, on applications of thermodynamics to chemical equilibrium, and on kinetics. A unified approach to molecular science is developed. The course is intended for serious students of science or engineering.

Sample reading list:
Zumdahl, Chemical Principles, 6th Edition

Reading/Writing assignments:
10 problems from text. Approximately one chapter per week from text, and handouts.

Requirements/Grading:
Final Exam - 30%
Other Exam - 30%
Lab Reports - 25%
Problem set(s) - 15%

Prerequisites and Restrictions:
Prerequisite consists of excellent high school preparation AND placement into the course by the Chemistry Department. Please contact Dr. Robert L'Esperance, rpl@princeton.edu, for all changes in class and lab sections after the completion of registration {OR} to add CHM 215 {OR} to be added to a waiting list for closed class or lab sections..

Equivalent Courses:
CHM 215, CHM 201, CHM 207 are considered equivalent courses and cannot be taken multiple times for credit.

Other information:
The 215 labs are scheduled with other freshman chemistry labs.
