Chemistry 123 is the second semester of a two semester sequence (CHMY 121/CHMY 123) designed to introduce the basic concepts of traditional general chemistry, organic chemistry, and biochemistry. This series is intended for students needing a breadth of chemistry without taking 2+ years required for a more intense coverage found in the curriculum for science and pre-med majors. This course will focus on the reactivity of organic compounds and biological chemistry.
