CHEM 150 Molecular Symmetry and Structure

Symmetry is a fundamental unifying aspect of nature and is found in many human creations, from art, music, and architecture, to mathematics and science. In chemistry, symmetry is central to understanding the interplay of molecular architecture and function. This course provides the student with a qualitative and formal conceptual framework for categorizing molecular structures.
