Welcome to new and returning students. First and second year students with problems should see Dr. Flinn, Deputy Head Undergraduate Studies (C4014), or Dr. Pickup (C4000D). Higher level students should see Dr. Pickup, Head, or their faculty advisor if they are Chemistry Majors.
Lab Waiver Deadline for Fall 2013Applications for lab waivers will not be accepted after 5:00 p.m. on Friday, September 13, 2013. Students granted a waiver must register for the lecture-only section of the course.
Students granted a lab waiver must still complete the course tutorial if there is one.
Changes to the lab schedules
Please note that first-year labs begin on Monday, September 9, 2013. Check for changes in the lab schedule on the bulletin board outside C4009 or click Fall 2013 Lab Schedule.
WHMIS/Laboratory Safety Training
Provincial Health and Safety legislation requires that Memorial ensure the health and safety of its employees and students. All students enrolled in chemistry courses will be exposed to chemicals and therefore are required to complete WHMIS/Laboratory Safety Training using the Desire2Learn system at DELTS (http://www.delts.mun.ca/). which is available from August 18 to September 17. Students who successfully complete the training must print the certificate showing that the program was successfully completed and must show it to their laboratory instructor at their first laboratory session of all of their chemistry courses.
In order to have access to the online course, students must first register for SFTY 1000, CRN 57267, through Memorial Self-Service. No tuition is charged for this course. Students can then log into Desire2Learn with their my.mun.ca login ID and access the courses; access will be available within 24 hours of completion of the registration. Students must provide verification that they have successfully completed the WHMIS and Laboratory safety courses to their lab instructor or supervisor prior to the start of laboratory classes.

Department of Chemistry unveils Computational Chemistry degree programs
The Department of Chemistry is preparing for its first ever offering of their newly minted general BSc and Honours BSc Compuational Chemistry degree programs.
Joining a relatively short list of similar programs across the country, the MUN Computational Chemistry degree programs stand apart from the other available programs in the approach of training students in computational chemistry.
By ensuring a robust mix of chemistry, mathematics and computer science courses, graduates of these degree programs will be prepared to enter industrial or academic positions in a wide variety of fields where computational chemistry has been emerging as a powerful tool of study.
The University calendar contains details about both the major and Honours degree programs, and more information can be found in the department's online Undergraduate Handbook. These programs should be of interest to students with a strong interest in chemistry and math or chemistry and computers who are looking for a means to explore a career that make extensive use of their interests. Detailed information about computational chemistry at MUN, including these degree programs can also be found on our MUN Computational Chemistry webpage.Chemistry 1050 Prerequisite Requirements
PR: at least 75% in high school CHEM 3202 and successful completion of high school Advanced Mathematics 3205 and Mathematics 1000 which may be taken concurrently with CHEM 1050.
Chemistry 1051 Prerequisite Requirements
PR: CHEM 1050 and Mathematics 1000
Departmental policy for canceled term tests and labs:
Term tests/labs canceled for reasons such as the closure of the university due to a snow storm or a fire alarm going off are automatically scheduled for the next lecture/lab period of the course.
