1.83 Environmental Organic Chemistry

Class Info

Focuses on the processes affecting organic compounds in the environment. Uses physical chemical properties to predict chemical transfers between environmental compartments (air, water, sediments, and biota). Uses molecular structure-reactivity relationships to estimate chemical, photochemical, and biochemical transformation rates. Resulting process models are combined to predict environmental concentrations (and related biological exposures) of anthropogenic and natural organic compounds.

This class has 5.60, and 18.03 as prerequisites.

1.83 will be offered this semester (Fall 2019). It is instructed by P. M. Gschwend.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits. This is a graduate-level class.
