Chemistry Curricula. Course Suggestions.
American Chemical Society, Washington, DC.
Listings of suggested topics aimed at helping university and college faculties plan courses in the main areas of the chemistry curricula are provided. The suggestions were originally offered as appendices to the American Chemical Society's (ACS) Committee on Professional Training's 1983 guidelines for ACS-approved schools. The course data included in the listings attempt to cover both some of the similarities and some of the breadth of current offerings in undergraduate chemistry programs. Many of the outlines and questions were assembled with help from divisions of the ACS as well as from persons with wide curricular contacts. The areas of the chemistry curriculum discussed are: (1) analytical chemistry; (2) biochemistry; (3) chemical health and safety; (4) chemical information retrieval; (5) computers in chemistry; (6) industrial chemistry; (7) inorganic chemistry; (8) organic chemistry; and (9) polymer chemistry.
