Welcome to Chemistry 12!

I am looking forward to working with you this fall on two profound and (for me!) fascinating areas of chemistry, called chemical thermodynamics and chemical kinetics.  These two fields underlie virtually all other areas of chemistry, in that any discussion of organic chemistry, atmospheric chemistry, materials science, and so on, makes reference in some way to the concepts that you will explore this semester.

Our first class meeting will be on Wednesday, September 8.  No discussion meeting that day.  Our Monday discussions will start on September 14, and our first lab meeting will be on Thursday, September 17.

The first reading assignment and problem set is now posted, and will be due on September 14.  (Don't wait to get started!)  Future assignments will be posted each Friday, and will be due the second Monday afterwards.

Please look at the posted information sheet for more details, and never ever hesitate to ask me any questions that may occur to you.
