Students taking courses in Chemistry are required to pay for each
course a laboratory fee of $10, and to make a special deposit of $5 to cover
breakage of apparatus.

For Undergraduates and Graduates.

Chemistry C1: Physical Chemistry: Chemistry B1 and Analytical Chemistry
B1 prerequisite.
—Some knowledge of the calculus is required, and previous
work in physics is desirable. This course will treat such topics as the
gas laws, kinetic theory of gases, the properties of dilute solutions, molecular
weights, mass action, reaction velocity, electrolysis and electromotive
force, the phase rule, etc. The laboratory work will consist of a thorough
course in physico-chemical measurements, including the measurement of
electrical conductance, electromotive force, etc.—Hours by appointment.
Chemical Laboratory. Associate Professor Edgar.

Chemistry C2: Advanced Organic Chemistry: Chemistry B1 and B2
—The lectures will deal intimately with selected topics in organic
chemistry. Reading from the scientific journals and reference books will be
assigned. Laboratory work will consist of the more difficult organic preparations,
partially adapted to the topics under discussion, special attention being given
to quantitative study of the reactions.—Hours by appointment. Chemical
Laboratory. Adjunct Professor Pratt.

For Graduates.

Chemistry D1: Advanced Inorganic Chemistry: Chemistry B1, C1 and
Analytical Chemistry C1 prerequisite.
—The lectures deal with the fundamental
theories and laws of chemical action. Parallel reading in the history of
chemistry is required. In the laboratory the study of chemical reactions is
taken up in an advanced way, and when the student has shown proper fitness
he undertakes work upon some special problem in inorganic chemistry.—
Hours by appointment. Professor Bird.

Chemistry D2: Advanced Physical Chemistry: Chemistry B1, C1 and
Analytical Chemistry C1 prerequisite.
—This course will be given only as occasion
demands, and the nature of the work will be arranged for the individual
student. It is intended for those seeking the degree of Doctor of Philosophy
who elect to do work in physical chemistry.—Hours by appointment. Associate
Professor Edgar.

For summer-school courses in chemistry, on which college credit will
be allowed, see p. 238.

The Chemical Journal Club meets every Thursday, 11-12, in the Chemical
Laboratory, for the critical review and discussion of various topics
of interest in current chemical literature, and of such chemical researches
as may be in progress in the University. All instructors and advanced
students in chemistry are expected to participate in these meetings and to
take part in the discussions. The privileges of the club are extended to all
persons in the University or in the vicinity of Charlottesville who are interested
in the progress of chemistry.
