Professional Interests

Research in the Fort lab focuses on the synthesis and reactivity of unique aromatic systems. Our projects aim to rationally design structures that have new and interesting properties by combining computational chemistry with organic synthesis. Many of the molecules we work with may some day find applications in organic electronic devices or in imaging of biological systems.

If you are interested in joining the research group, contact Dr. Fort.

CHEM 201 - 01 Organic Chemistry I M - W - F 0815 - 0920 OWS 251
CRN: 40036 4 Credit Hours Study of the various families of organic compounds. Emphasis is placed on structure determination, reaction mechanisms, stereochemistry and spectroscopy in addition to a survey of various reaction types. An introduction to biochemical topics is included. Lecture plus four laboratory hours per week. Offered fall semester. Prerequisite: A minimum grade of C- in CHEM 112 or 115
CHEM 201 - 52 Organic Chemistry I/Lab - T - - - 0730 - 1130 OWS 477
CRN: 40040 0 Credit Hours Study of the various families of organic compounds. Emphasis is placed on structure determination, reaction mechanisms, stereochemistry and spectroscopy in addition to a survey of various reaction types. An introduction to biochemical topics is included. Lecture plus four laboratory hours per week. Offered fall semester. Prerequisite: A minimum grade of C- in CHEM 112 or 115
CHEM 481 - 01 Student Seminar - - - - F 1215 - 1320 OWS 251
CRN: 40060 1 Credit Hours 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 fall semester.
