1100. Principles of Chemical Science
This course is taught by Prof. Sylvia Ceyer and Prof. Catherine Drennan at MIT. It is an introductory chemistry course, emphasizing basic principles of atomic and molecular electronic structure, thermodynamics, acid-base and redox equilibria, chemical kinetics, and catalysis. This course also introduces the chemistry of biological, inorganic, and organic molecules.

1105. Principles of Chemical Science (Updated)
This course provides an introduction to the chemistry of biological, inorganic, and organic molecules. The emphasis is on basic principles of atomic and molecular electronic structure, thermodynamics, acid-base and redox equilibria, chemical kinetics, and catalysis. In an effort to illuminate connections between chemistry and biology, the biology-, medicine-, and MIT research-related examples are provided. This is an updated version (taught in Fall 2008) of the course with the same name and includes a full set of video lectures and lecture notes.

1110. General Chemistry
This course covers stoichiometry of chemical reactions, quantum mechanical description of atoms, the elements and periodic table, chemical bonding, real and ideal gases, thermochemistry, introduction to thermodynamics and equilibrium, acid-base and solubility equilibria, introduction to oxidation-reduction reactions. It is taught in University of California, Berkeley by a group of lecturers: Angelica Stacy, Marcin Majda, Kristy Boering and Michelle Douskey.

1310. Introductory Organic Chemistry
This is the first semester in a two-semester introductory course focused on current theories of structure and mechanism in organic chemistry, their historical development, and their basis in experimental observation. The course is open to freshmen with excellent preparation in chemistry and physics, and it aims to develop both taste for original science and intellectual skills necessary for creative research.

2120. Chemical Thermodynamics & Kinetics
This course deals primarily with equilibrium properties of macroscopic systems, basic thermodynamics, chemical equilibrium of reactions in gas and solution phase, and rates of chemical reactions. It includes a complete set of video lectures and lecture notes. The course is taught at MIT and the material has evolved over a period of many years, and several faculty members have contributed to the development of the course contents.

2310. Introduction to Solid State Chemistry
This course explores the basic principles of chemistry and their application to engineering systems. It deals with the relationship between electronic structure, chemical bonding, and atomic order. It also investigates the characterization of atomic arrangements in crystalline and amorphous solids: metals, ceramics, semiconductors, and polymers (including proteins). Topics covered include organic chemistry, solution chemistry, acid-base equilibria, electrochemistry, biochemistry, chemical kinetics, diffusion, and phase diagrams. Examples are drawn from industrial practice (including the environmental impact of chemical processes), from energy generation and storage, e.g., batteries and fuel cells, and from emerging technologies, e.g., photonic and biomedical devices. (A complete set of video/audio lectures are available including an excellent set of lecture materials)
