Courses taught by Dr. Dias

CHEM 1441 General Chemistry
This course is intended for science and engineering majors, and all students should have completed MATH 1302 or its equivalent. Students who have not had high school chemistry are advised to take CHEM 1300 first. To receive credit for CHEM 1441, you must also be enrolled in a CHEM 1441 lab. Students pursuing a career in nursing should take CHEM 1451 instead of this course. Students who are not science or engineering majors should take CHEM 1445 and CHEM 1446 instead of CHEM 1441 and CHEM 1442. Prerequisite: MATH 1302 or equivalent, or concurrent enrollment in MATH 1322, MATH 1323 or MATH 1426.

CHEM 1442 General Chemistry II
Study of advanced atomic structure and bonding concepts, acid-base theory, kinetics and equilibria, thermodynamics, electrochemistry, the chemistry of some elements. The laboratory focuses on experimental design, data collection and analyses as well as chemical syntheses to illustrate fundamental principles presented in the lecture. Prerequisite: CHEM 1441 or equivalent with a grade of C or better (which may include satisfactory score on Advanced Standing Examination through UTA Assessment Services).

CHEM 4318 Inorganic Chemistry
An overview of the chemistry of the transition metals. Topics include symmetry and applications, bonding models, magnetism, synthesis of metal complexes, modern characterization techniques including IR, NMR, and electronic spectroscopy, organometallic compounds, reaction mechanisms, catalysis, and bioinorganic chemistry. Prerequisite: CHEM 2322 with a grade of C or better.

CHEM 4346 Advanced Synthetic Methods
This course is designed to teach you various methods of synthesis, isolation, purification, and characterization of inorganic, organic and organometallic compounds. Prerequisite: Grade of C or better in CHEM 2182, 2322, and 3317 or 4318.
