** The FSCC Campus will be closed November 26th-28th for Thanksgiving Holiday. Campus will reopen on December 1st. Happy Thanksgiving!

Welcome to FSCC Chemistry!

The Chemistry Department at FSCC is here to prepare you for a wide variety of possible careers. Of course, careers in science or engineering will require chemistry, but countless other careers, such as agriculture, nursing, and pharmacy to name just a few, also rely on a working knowledge of chemistry in order to be successful.

Why should you choose FSCC? The courses that you take at FSCC will meet or exceed the standards of the other institutions ensuring transferability of the classes to whatever institution you choose to complete your degree.

Course Descriptions

CHE1095 – Basic Chemistry (5 hours – Fall, Spring, & most Summers):  Introduction to chemistry for students who have not taken high school chemistry; involves 3 hours of lecture plus three hours of lab.  Topics covered include measurement systems, atomic and molecular structure, stoichiometry, gas laws, acids and bases, organic chemistry, and biochemistry.  Prerequisite:  MAT0953 or equivalent High School Algebra.

CHE1015 – General Chemistry I (5 hours – Fall & Spring):  Lecture , discussion, and laboratory work on the principles involved in general chemistry with special emphasis on mathematical relationships.  Class involves 3 hours of lecture and 3 hours of lab.  Students planning majors in most science related fields should enroll in this class.  Topics include measurement systems, stoichiometry, atomic and molecular structure, chemical behavior, physical states, solutions, acid/base chemistry, gas laws, oxidation/reduction chemistry, and Thermochemistry.  Students will need a good background in high school chemistry and algebra.  Prerequisite:  MAT1073 (Intermediate Algebra) with a grade of C or better.

CHE1025 – General Chemistry II (5 hours – Spring):  A continuation of CHE1015.  Three hours lecture and three hours lab are offered each week.  Topics covered include chemical kinetics, equilibrium, acid/base chemistry, aqueous equilibria, thermodynamics, electrochemistry, and organic chemistry. Prerequisite:  CHE1015.

CHE2105 – Basic Organic Chemistry (5 hours – on demand):  Introduction to principles of aliphatic and aromatic carbon chemistry with brief mention of topics in biochemistry; class involves 3 hours of lecture, 3 hours of lab.  Recommended for students planning to transfer into programs of medical technology, nursing, veterinary medicine, and agriculture.  Not recommended for chemistry majors.  Prerequisite:  CHE1095 or CHE1015.

CHE2035 – General Organic Chemistry (5 hours – on demand):  Three hours of lecture and 6 hours of lab weekly.  This is the first course in a two-semester sequence in organic chemistry for science majors.  Topics covered include:  properties and nomenclature of the main classes of organic compounds, structural properties and isomerism, stereochemistry/chirality, basic organic reactions and their reactions.  Prerequisite:  CHE1025.

CHE2055 – Quantitative Analysis (5 hours – on demand):  Fundamental principles of gravimetric analysis and volumetric quantitative analysis with topics in photometric and potentiometric analysis; class involves 2 hours of lecture, 6 hours of lab.  Prerequisite:  CHE1025.
