As a continuation of CHEM 1510, this course continues with a study of those areas of chemistry that relate to bioindustrial principles. This course parallels the chemistry of organic molecules to biochemical functions. It introduces the 3-D nature of carbon molecules and the relationship between shape and physiological activity. The course covers topics that parallel organic compounds with biochemical molecules, pairing such groups as the oxygen-containing organic molecules with carbohydrates, carboxylic acids with lipids, and amines with amino acids and proteins. CHEM 1520 begins during the second part of the quarter, immediately following the completion of CHEM 1510. Both CHEM 1510 and 1520 must be completed to satisfy the requirements for transfer as a four-semester credit course for baccalaureate work. This course includes both lecture and lab components.
