C102 | ALL | Richardson
Prerequisite: C101 or its equivalent. Taken concurrently with C122.
Continuation of C101.
NMNS Objectives: Designed to give a one-semester overview of organic and
biological chemistry for students who need two semesters of general chemistry
and for students planning careers in the allied health sciences. The course
emphasizes aspects of chemistry, which are relevant to health-related fields.
Content: The course consists of two major parts. Chapters 1 through 11
introduce organic chemistry with particular reference to the basic types of
compounds that are present in living systems. Chapters 12 through 19 deal
with the biochemistry of these compounds, their structures, synthesis and
metabolism, and how energy is obtained from biochemical processes. Some
aspects of nutrition will also be covered in the course.
