CHM 207 is an introductory course in chemistry with examples drawn from materials science. The basic concepts of chemistry are introduced: stoichiometry, reaction types, equilibria, thermodynamics, quantum mechanics, and chemical bonding. These concepts are applied in discussions of the structure, reactions, and properties of technologically important materials: metals, semiconductors, ceramics, and polymers. This course is designed as a one term introduction to chemistry, however it may be coupled with CHM 202 to fulfill medical school requirements in general chemistry.
