This page is more of a record of my class responsibilities at EIU than a link collection to all of my class materials, which actually was my original intent. Unfortunately, when I left EIU, with no notification, they compressed my entire web site into a single zip file and emailed it to me. Unfortunately, the directory structure was mangled and most of the files were destroyed, including virtually all of my class-related pages.

Description
CHM 1410
(syllabus)
General Chemistry II (3-0-3)
F,S
The second semester of the general chemistry sequence.  Principles and applications of equilibrium, kinetics, thermodynamics, and electrochemistry.  CHM 1415 must be taken concurrently.  Prerequisites: CHM 1310G with a grade of "C" or better and CHM 1315G.
CHM 2040C
(syllabus)
Practical Chemistry (2-0-2)
F,S
The principle that molecule structure determines chemical and physical properties will be examined for materials encountered in everyday life.  The nature of organic molecules in the home such as cleansers, food, etc., will be emphasized.  No credit toward major or minor in chemistry.
CHM 2430
(syllabus)
Survey of Organic Chemistry
(3-0-3)
F,S
Studies of aliphatic and aromatic compounds with an introduction to the theories of organic chemistry and reaction mechanisms. Prerequisite: CHM (1410C, 1415C) or (1510C, 1515C).  Chemistry majors must elect CHM 2435 concurrently.
CHM 2435
(syllabus)
Survey of Organic Chemistry Laboratory
(0-3-1)
F,S
An introduction to common laboratory techniques of organic chemistry. Representative reactions of alkanes, alkenes, alkynes, alkyl halides, and aromatic compounds; spectroscopy of organic compounds.
CHM 2440 (syllabus) Organic Chemistry I (3-0-3)
F,S
The nomenclature and reactions of major types of organic compounds including alkanes, alkenes, alkynes, alkyl halides, and aromatic compounds; stereochemistry; mechanisms of organic reactions; spectroscopy of organic compounds. Prerequisite: CHM (1410C, 1415C) or (1510C, 1515C). Chemistry majors must elect CHM 2445 concurrently.
CHM 2445
(syllabus)
Organic Chemistry Laboratory I (0-3-1)
F,S
An introduction to common laboratory techniques of organic chemistry. Representative reactions of alkanes, alkenes, alkynes, alkyl halides, and aromatic compounds; spectroscopy of organic compounds. Prerequisites: CHM (1410, 1415) or (1510, 1515); concurrent enrollment or prior credit in CHM 2440. 
CHM 2840
(syllabus)
Organic Chemistry II (3-0-3)
F,S
A continuation of CHM 2440 emphasizing reaction mechanisms, spectroscopic identification and synthetic sequences from a practical and theoretical viewpoint. Required for chemistry majors and for those in the pre-chemical engineering program. Prerequisites: CHM 2440 and 2435.
CHM 2845
(syllabus)
Advanced Organic Chemistry Laboratory (0-3-1)
F, S
Multistep syntheses, determination of reaction mechanisms and qualitative analysis. Prerequisite: Concurrent (or prior) enrollment in CHM 2840.
CHM 4790
(syllabus)
Medicinal Chemistry (3-0-3)
F-odd yrs./
whim of Chair
Basic principles of pharmacology, drug-receptor interaction, physicochemical properties as related to biological activity; synthesis of medicinally important molecules including strategic considerations. Prerequisite: CHM 2840 or permission of instructor. I actually proposed this course, which, due to its popularity, was accepted as a permanent catalog offering.
CHM 5410
(syllabus)
Graduate Organic Synthesis and Mechanisms
(3-0-3)
whim of Chair

A study of the mechanisms of reactions and methods of synthesis in organic chemistry. Prerequisite: CHM 2840.
* The strange numbers in parenthesis denote, respectively, the # of classroom hours, the # of lab hours, and the # of credits for the course. For example, CHM 5410 (right above) indicates (3-0-3). Thus we know it meets 3hr/week, has no lab, and is worth 3 credits upon passing.
