CHEM 40 Physical Chemistry of Biochemical Processes

Topics in physical chemistry of relevance to fundamental biochemical processes. These will include the thermodynamic and spectroscopic characterization of macromolecular systems, ligand binding and adsorption equilibria, intermolecular interactions and the hydrophobic effect, and transport properties such as diffusion. Laboratory exercises apply these concepts to important biophysical problems, using calorimetric, spectroscopic and computational techniques.


CHEM 6 (or CHEM 10) and PHYS 13 (or PHYS 15, or PHYS 3 and PHYS 4) and MATH 8, or permission of the instructor. Students with credit for CHEM 75 are not eligible to receive credit for CHEM 40. Supplemental course fee required.

Distributive and/or World Culture


The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
