CHEM 316

Chocolate: A Chemical Investigation 

This course is designed to provide an introduction to the chemistry of substances found in the plants in the natural environment and the way in which they affect our quality of life.  The focus will be on the science of chocolate with additional plant and food chemistry will be discussed throughout the semester. The course is structured so that each discussion is preceded by the introduction of some basic chemical principles.  These topics will provide the basis for a fuller understanding of how scientists think and approach problems.  Hopefully, the basic working knowledge of chemical principles and scientific literature developed in this course will allow the student to participate in intelligent conversation on scientific topics based on fact, not farce, throughout their life.  The applications to real-life examples are designed to show students just how much chemistry and science in general permeates their everyday lives.

Note: Matriculated students MUST register using their MyCsusm portal.
