Environmental Chemistry


Examination of today's most pressing environmental problems (smog formation, global warming, mercury emissions, acid mine drainage, and environmental fate of toxic organic chemicals), providing the principles needed to understand and predict how chemicals are likely to move and transform in the environment. Laboratory component emphasizes analysis of organic compounds by gas chromatography, as well as spectrometric methods for analysis of organic and inorganic chemicals. 3 Credits (2 Lecture - 3 Lab) Prerequisite(s): CHM121 and ENL201 and MTH180 or CHM121 and ENL201 and Placement by Examination. As needed.
