CHEM 100 - The Chemistry of Altered and Natural Environments
To grapple with the complex environmental questions faced by modern society, the science that explains the phenomenon we observe must be understood. From endocrine disruptors to the ozone hole, global warming to plastics, and nuclear technology to acid rain, chemical principles allow one to understand, predict, and potentially mitigate the consequences of environmental changes in our modern age. This course provides an introduction to chemical principles and their application toward environmental issues. It focuses on those principles that are crucial in understanding environments and present-day environmental challenges. This course is designed for students who are interested in environmental science and environmental studies. There is no prior chemical knowledge expected, and there are no prerequisites. This course is not part of the CHEM 101/102 sequence of general chemistry.
