Chemistry 503

3 (crs.)

Biochemistry I: Clinical Emphases

Topics include: amino acids, proteins, nucleic acids, bioenergetics, carbohydrates, lipids, hormones, vitamins, electrolytes, and xenobiotics. Clinical correlations will be presented which emphasize: biochemistry, pathophysiology, and quantification of body fluid constituents. Prerequisite: Chemistry 335 with a grade of C or better. 303/503 (Fall)

Chemistry 504

1 (crs.)

Biochemistry I: Clinical Emphases Laboratory

Laboratory experiences are correlated to topics presented in Chemistry 303/503. Techniques include aspects of spectrophotometry, electrophoresis, chromatography, immunoassays, fluorescence, and computer applications. A significant amount of writing is expected. Prerequisite: Completion of or concurrent enrollment in Chemistry 303 or 503. 304/504 (Fall)

Chemistry 510

1 – 3 (crs.)

Chemistry Workshop for K-12 Teachers

This course is intended to be a workshop in chemistry for K-12. The focus will be on activities to improve the effectiveness of the classroom teacher. The course does not apply to any graduate degree program at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh.

Chemistry 535

4 (crs.)

Organic Chemistry II

A continuation of Chemistry 235 which includes a discussion of alcohols, phenols, ethers, carbonyl-containing compounds, amines, anilines, carbohydrates and proteins. Particular emphasis is placed on the mechanistic and theoretical aspects of the various topics covered. Infrared, nuclear magnetic resonance, and mass spectroscopes are discussed in a qualitative manner. Laboratory includes advanced synthesis work and introductory, qualitative organic analysis emphasizing modern spectral techniques. Prerequisite: Chemistry 235 with a grade of C or better. 335/535 (3+3)

Chemistry 560

1 – 3 (crs.)

Special Topics

A chemistry course on a topic not covered in the department’s curriculum. This course may be repeated with different content. Each time it is offered, the topic will be announced in the class schedule. This course will not offer topics which are covered by existing courses. Graduate students will be required to do an extra project or paper. Prerequisites: Consent of instructor. 360/560

Chemistry 635

3 (crs.)

Interpretive Spectroscopy

The application of spectral methods to the characterization of the structure of inorganic and organic compounds will be presented. Specific topics will include infrared, Raman, ultraviolet and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopes and mass spectrometry. The laboratory will involve the use of these techniques to identify the structure of unknown samples. Prerequisite: Chemistry 335/535 or consent of instructor and completion of or concurrent enrollment in Chemistry 370 435/635 (2+3)
