Syllabus Information
AGRY 54400 - Environmental Organic Chemistry
Associated Term: Fall 2024
Learning Outcomes: 1. Demonstrate an understanding of the fundamental properties and processes controlling the environmental fate of organic contaminants in surface and subsurface environments. 2. Understand how variations in chemical structure change chemical behavior including solubility, volatility, acid-base speciation and reactivity. 3. Quantify chemical distribution between soil-water, soil-air, water-air and liquid-liquid compartments. 4. Understand and quantify how environmental and anthropogenic factors change chemical behavior and distribution in the environment. 5. Apply partition coefficients and mass balance approaches to predict chemical distribution between various environmental compartments. 6. Demonstrate an understanding of how abiotic and biotransformation processes affect chemical fate in the environment. 7. Demonstrate an understanding how chemical, soil and subsurface properties impact choice of remediation strategies.
