CRN: 10200 2 Credit Hours Instructor: Thomas C. Marsh CHEM 487: Topics – Biomaterials TWRF 9:30-11:30 Prerequisites: MATH 109 or 113, and CHEM 201 or permission of instructor Biomaterials science is a subfield of material science that concerns itself with the properties of materials produced by living things and the interaction of synthetic material with living things. The potential biomedical application of biomaterials is a major segment of this interesting field. How do you create a stable graft between a titanium implant and natural bone? What are the chemical and structural spider silk that make it stronger than steel? This course explores the chemical and material properties of materials produced by living organism and materials that interface with biological systems. We will investigate the structure function properties of biopolymers and assemblies constructed from biomolecules. We will also examine the properties of inorganic and synthetic materials are used in biomedical and other applications. Topics include structure of biomolecular building blocks, structure of biopolymers, supramolecular polymers, metals, composites, application of biomaterials and methods of characterization. This course is designed as an elective course for students majoring in Chemistry, Biology, Biochemistry, and Materials Engineering.

CHEM 101 - 01 Environmental Chemistry - T - R - - - 0800 - 0920 OSS 127
CRN: 20018 4 Credit Hours Instructor: Daniel A. Tobin An introduction to chemistry with particular emphasis on environmental science. Basic chemistry topics covered include the structure of matter, elements, compounds, reactions, energy and energy changes. These fundamentals lead to the study of currently relevant environmental problems and their proposed solutions, for example the depletion of ozone in the stratosphere, global warming, acid rain, smog, waste disposal, water pollution and the study of energy resources. Lectures and laboratory. This course satisfies the lab science requirement in the core curriculum for non-majors. Offered spring semester. NOTE: Students who receive credit for CHEM 101 may not receive credit for CHEM 100.

CHEM 482 - 01 Student Seminar - - - - F - - 1215 - 1320 OWS 251
CRN: 20049 0 Credit Hours Instructor: Eric H. Fort This sequence of courses begins in the fall semester of the junior year and progresses for a total of four semesters. The first (CHEM 481) and last (CHEM 484) courses are each one credit and are graded on the usual letter grade scale. The interior two courses (CHEM 482, 483) are zero credit and are graded on a pass-fail basis (S/R). Seminars are presented by guest speakers, St. Thomas faculty, and St. Thomas students throughout all four courses. In CHEM 481, juniors are introduced to the chemical literature, literature search techniques including use of computer databases, and write a short paper based on literature research. In CHEM 483 seniors meet in small groups with faculty and discuss articles from the current literature. In CHEM 484, seniors research a topic from the chemical literature and present it in both written and oral formats. Information about career opportunities for students holding a chemistry degree is presented throughout the seminar sequence. Required of all chemistry majors. Offered spring semester.
