Re:
Academic Year 2012/2013 and Fiscal Year 2013 Planning
I write to present the results of our self-study and planning for the coming academic year. In keeping with past
practice, this memo briefly describes our current and projected enrollments, plans for curricular innovation, and
requests for resources necessary to support our teaching mission.
Last year in our Planning Memo, I laid out a number of initiatives that we wish to pursue to enhance the academic
experience for students in Chemistry. These included the expansion of tutoring resources for Chemistry courses,
development of our scientific instrumentation support staff, improvements to our administrative space, and a
continuing overhaul of our teaching facilities. This latter point continues to affect our ability to revise and update
our academic offerings, and it remains our top priority for the coming academic year.
Aside from our need to see our tenure-track faculty numbers grow to allow student-faculty ratios to be more in
line with other science departments at Boston University, the greatest single challenge and opportunity that we
face in enhancing our academic programs is the need to properly support and develop our instructional
laboratories. With generous support from CAS and BU, we have made great strides in addressing these
deficiencies: the newly renovated and equipped organic labs on the 3 rd floor of Metcalf are a tremendous addition
to our resources, and the supplemental funding provided to our other courses has allowed us to make many
improvements to our instructional supplies and options. Nevertheless, the demands made on materials,
equipment, and instrumentation in our instructional labs, along with the imperative that we keep our curriculum
current to meet changes in the field, requires that we continually evaluate the resources at our disposal to ensure
that they are adequate, contemporary, and above all, safe. For this reason, we again request an increase in the
continuing department budget.
We must continue to look forward to and plan for major renovations of our undergraduate instructional
laboratories. The very successful overhaul of our 2nd floor General Chemistry labs in the Metcalf Science Center
represented the first phase of a three-phase plan. Renovation of the 3rd floor analytical labs for use as Organic
Chemistry instructional space was completed in September 2011, completing the second phase of our plan. The
recent renovation of our front office has created an exceptional workspace to support academic programs,
finance, and departmental operations. As a result of these substantial investments, we are now in a position to
support our curricular and pedagogical initiatives to prepare students for the demands of the contemporary
research and commercial marketplaces.
The third and largest phase of our proposed comprehensive instructional laboratory renovations plan includes the
renovation of our Analytical, Inorganic, Physical, and Biochemistry laboratories located on the 1 st floor of the East
Wing of the Metcalf Science Center. These proposed renovations, demanded by increased enrollments and
antiquated spaces that compromise the learning and safety of our students, are critical to our Department’s
teaching program.
We have seen continued development of the Chemical Instrumentation Center. We recently added a new EPR to
the range of instruments available, and will soon acquire a circular dichroism (CD) instrument. These instruments
were acquired through grant funds but now demand technical staff support to realize their full potential as a
resource for our research and teaching programs. We propose to address this need through additional staffing that
will serve our CIC and the high enrollments of our first- and second-year chemistry courses.
I invite you to contact me with any questions concerning the materials that follow
AY 2012/2013 Chemistry Academic Planning Memo & Self-Study
Overview of current enrollments in Chemistry courses
Proposals for curricular development and the significant investment of capital resources must ultimately be
justified in terms of current and projected enrollments. Enrollments in our undergraduate chemistry majors and
service courses stand at 2255 students in the 2011 Fall Semester, and 1860 students in the 2011 Spring Semester,
continuing the steady increase in enrollments witnessed over the last several years. The anticipated enrollment in
our undergraduate chemistry courses for the upcoming academic year is expected to continue at this historically
high level. These enrollments speak to the increasing importance of the “molecular sciences” in the medical,
materials, and biological sciences.
In the Fall of 2011, 1378 students enrolled in 100-level Chemistry courses. Since 2002, the annual number of
declared Chemistry majors has increased by more than 35%, reaching 180 for 2011.
While these large enrollments provide wonderful opportunities for our teaching mission, they also present
significant challenges. In the absence of substantial faculty development, the ratio of students to tenure-track
faculty has risen from 70:1 during AY 2002 to 179:1 by AY 2009. Although beyond the scope of this planning
document, it is important to note that significant improvements in these ratios can only be achieved through
faculty development, including replacement and the addition of new faculty lines, to bring our student:faculty
ratios more in line with numbers enjoyed by other natural science departments such as Physics and Biology.
“Dynamic programming” for effective and equitable course staffing
Given the dynamic state of staffing in our department, it is difficult if not impossible to develop complete and
meaningful plans for course staffing that extend beyond an academic year. Each new academic year, if not each
semester, brings unexpected challenges through retirement, “buy out,” or sabbatical leave.
Our Department now consists of only 26 tenure-track faculty. Three faculty members have proposed sabbatical
leave for AY 12/13, one for one semester of leave, and two for the full academic year. Mark Grinstaff holds a halftime appointment in Chemistry (the other half in Biomedical Engineering). Brandon Xia is a full appointment in
Chemistry, but his teaching obligations rest solely in the Bioinformatics Program. Anticipating the successful
recruitment of two new faculty members as a result of our on-going Medicinal Chemistry and Biological Chemistry
searches, we will see those new faculty each teach a graduate course in AY 12/13. The result is that we have an
aggregate of only 22 tenure-track faculty teaching equivalents to meet the challenges presented by high
enrollments in AY 12/13.
We must recognize that our faculty numbers are low compared to our pedagogical obligations – especially at a
time of record enrollments in our introductory chemistry classes – and the substantial assistance of teaching
faculty, instructors, and Postdoctoral Faculty Fellows remains essential to our ability to serve our teaching mission
well in the coming academic year. However, this will still leave the Department far short of the faculty size we
aspire to and feel is warranted given student enrollments and the remarkable research opportunities in the
molecular sciences.
Development of Additional Instructional Resources within the Metcalf Center
The renovations throughout the Metcalf Center in AY 2010-2011 have led/will lead to numerous improvements in
the instructional, research, and administrative resources of the Chemistry Department. However, the exchange of
SCI 263 to PY in return for the SCI 270 suite, and the conversion of SCI 482 to laboratory group seating for new
faculty connected to the NIH C06 renovations, has removed two spaces heavily used for instruction. Although the
SCI 270 conversion provided a small testing room (270D), and the organic laboratory construction on the 3rd floor
produced a small conference room (SCI 344), neither fully compensates for SCI 263 and SCI 482.
To close this gap, Chemistry has proposed opening up the 2 nd floor lounge in the atrium, SCI 200B, for instructional
use. A proposal was forwarded to the Sub Space Committee by CAS Director of Facilities Lisa Doherty, in which we
request a second doorway between the lounge and the hall outside SCI 270B, 270C, and 270D, and the addition of
wall-mounted black or white boards to 200B. The immediate accessibility of this space to the 100-level instructors
in the 270 suite makes it very desirable, since these instructors see a tremendous volume of student traffic during
office hours. In addition, it will expand the resources for other instructional faculty and TF’s.

Justification for requested Teaching Fellow support
The Chemistry Department has a wide spectrum of teaching assignments resulting from the complex nature of our
course offerings. Our largest courses require the support of course lecturers, pre-laboratory lecturers, laboratory
section leaders, and discussion section leaders. In addition to the tenure track faculty, Chemistry relies upon
faculty Course Coordinators, staff Laboratory Supervisors, Postdoctoral Faculty Fellows, graduate Teaching Fellows,
and Undergraduate Assistants to fulfill our teaching mission.
As course enrollments increase, the base number of Teaching Fellow positions has not kept pace. In addition, as
renovations add new instructional spaces, the number of TF’s required to provide adequate pedagogical and safety
coverage also grows. Accordingly, each year we work from an insufficient base number toward the number of
positions required to meet the enrollments in our courses. This process forces the College and Graduate School to
use “emergency funds” to meet a need arising from these expanded enrollment – and, presumably, a
corresponding increase in tuition revenue.
If we assume that our enrollments in first-year courses will be similar in AY 12/13 to our current enrollments, and
that these numbers will be reflected in second-year courses, we anticipate the need for TFE as follows.

Note: If Chemistry receives funding to support the proposed hire of an instrumentation specialist dedicated to the
undergraduate instructional laboratories, we expect to eliminate two TF semesters. Similarly, if funds are provided
to hire another lecturer for General Chemistry in the Spring of 2013, we anticipate an additional reduction of
approximately four TF semesters. For further discussion of these proposals, please review the sections on
undergraduate curriculum (p. 3), development of technical staffing (p. 6), and our funding requests in Supplement
II (p. 41).
Funding equipment and supply expenses for our instructional laboratories
Fall 2011 presented us with the challenges not only of meeting existing needs, but fully equipping an additional
organic chemistry lab. We also faced a deficit in major instrumentation for the new analytical laboratory within the
organic laboratory suite. To address this, CAS and the Provost’s office provided nearly $530,000 in supplemental
funding, for which we are extremely grateful. Not only did this provide the $326,000 that we needed to supply and
appoint the new organic instructional laboratories, but also it also fully funded the requests submitted by all of our
other courses in the AY 11/12 Academic Planning Memo. The leverage provided by such large purchases not only
enabled chemistry to negotiate better discounts from vendors, but motivated one vendor to supply additional
capital equipment as a grant to the Department. The funding provided in the fall of 2011 has had a very positive
impact on the quality of the resources and curriculum available to students in nearly all CH courses.
Nevertheless, the need for reexamination of the Department operating budget remains a chief concern. The
continuing budget as presently disbursed to Chemistry is inadequate to meet the annual instructional needs and
2
aspirations of the Department. This regular shortfall forces the Department to rely upon academic year release
funds and IDC return to cover what should be considered the basic operating expenses of our undergraduate
teaching laboratories. While we are grateful for the “supplements” disbursed to CH from CAS, the fact that they
are supplements makes it difficult to plan for the replacement or upgrade of lab equipment, purchase of new
instrumentation, or enhancement of our laboratory curricula. We appreciate that it is also a goal of the College to
see these lines of funding recognized as predictable and continuing by the Provost. We again propose a substantial
increase in our continuing base operating budget to recognize our need to cover these regular and necessary
operating expenses for our instructional laboratories. Further details are provided in Supplement II.
Planned renovation of our instructional laboratories
We expect that our instructional laboratories will again serve close to 4,000 registrations in AY 12/13, the great
majority of which are associated with 100-level or 200-level courses. While enrollments in the 100-level
instructional laboratory courses declined very slightly (<1.5%) as compared to AY 10/11, there is a continued need
to complete the renovation of our instructional laboratories if we are to meet this substantial demand while
offering a safe and engaging educational experience.
In 2003, Chemistry laid out a four-phase strategic plan for the renovation of its largest instructional laboratories
and administrative resources. Three of the four phases are now complete: the renovation of the second-floor
General Chemistry labs in 2005 (Phase I), followed by the renovation of the Organic Chemistry labs (Phase III) and
the Chemistry Front Office (Phase IV) in 2011.
We are pleased and extremely grateful for the redesigned organic laboratory space now available to serve our
large second year organic chemistry enrollments. The renovations were motivated by the Department’s desire to
create a “discovery” based curriculum informed by state-of-the-art practices in organic chemistry, and inspired by
ongoing research by our faculty. Among the major pedagogical benefits expected from this renovation is an
upgrade in organic laboratory instruction at the 200-level from a bi-weekly to a weekly schedule. Also exciting are
the many physical improvements to the space, from better HVAC infrastructure to a central instrumentation suite
to house the 300 MHz instructional NMR and other analytical equipment. Overall, the new lab complex greatly
enhances Chemistry’s ability to provide a safer and much improved learning environment for undergraduates.
With the General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, and Administrative Office renovations complete, only Phase II
remains. It is intended to address the increasingly urgent need to renovate the analytical chemistry instructional
laboratories, SCI 153 and 160, serving CH109/110, CH111/112, CH181/182, CH171/172 (Sargent) and CH201. The
demand for CH109 and 171 in particular has increased, with respective increases of 21% and 31% over Fall 2010.
Similar to the organic chemistry laboratory renovation, the proposal for Phase II was expected to accommodate
increased enrollments through more efficient and functional laboratory design, as well as better equipped and
located space for shared instrumentation facilities.
As part of the organic renovations, the labs previously used for the organic courses, SCI 153 and 160, underwent
retrofitting for use by the analytical chemistry courses. While this has addressed immediate needs, a full
renovation of the analytical chemistry instructional facilities must remain an important and pressing goal for the
future.
Ongoing and proposed undergraduate curricular development
Our faculty members continue to develop new courses at the graduate level and new curricula for existing courses
at the undergraduate level. These developments address three central and continuing challenges to our
Department’s academic program: (1) the need to see our curriculum reflect the current state of knowledge in the
rapidly evolving molecular sciences, (2) the need to expose our students to the latest experimental techniques
used in chemical synthesis and analysis, and (3) the desire to expose our students to the great open questions that
define current and future research directions in the molecular sciences.
In Fall 2010, Chemistry introduced CAS CH195, Freshman Seminar for Chemistry Majors, a one-credit course taught
on a trial basis for a subset of chemistry majors. The course was continued this year with great success, with ten
students in the class. The focus of the seminar series was to stimulate discussions on the role and impact of
chemistry and the chemical sciences on society. Summer advising for incoming chemistry majors will be a critical
3
time to make students aware of the course and get them to register. In order to have maximum involvement of all
students, keeping the section sizes relatively small (10 - 15 students) is imperative.
In addition, based on a pilot effort in AY 09/10, the Department received official CAS approval for granting WR150
equivalent recognition to students who take CH111/112 laboratory. This effort is part of an initiative to offer new
ways for students to incorporate and integrate writing into their academic studies.
Spring 2011 saw the introduction of undergraduate Learning Assistants (LA's) to CH102. This effort was funded by a
RULE grant following a proposal submitted by Professors John Caradonna and Dan Dill, and based on a program
from Colorado University at Boulder. The LA’s assist in CH102 discussion sections, helping students with new
problem-oriented material developed by the CH102 teaching staff. Ten LA’s were recruited from among 120
applicants who had completed CAS CH102 Spring 2010 with a grade of at least B−. The LA’s commit 10 hours per
week to the program, and for this they receive a stipend of $800 and two credits for SED SC521. The response of
the LA’s, the CAS CH102 students and the CAS CH102 course staff has been enthusiastic, and we hope to see this
program continue. Physics and Biology have also submitted a proposal to support similar programming in their
respective curricula.
Aspirational Curricular Development
One serious issue that we face as a Department is the challenge of offering new courses to meet the growth of the
subject and our responsibilities in the training of undergraduate majors. While there has been a significant
number of new faculty hires in recent years, substantial overall faculty growth has not occurred owing to
retirement rates comparable to or in excess of hiring rates. This situation prevents the Chemistry Department
from offering new courses that we feel would be attractive to students and of value to undergraduate recruitment.
On the positive side, we have seen a steady increase in the number of undergraduate chemistry majors taking, and
succeeding in, graduate chemistry courses. It is not uncommon to find six to ten undergraduates in classes
numbered at the 600 and 700 levels. This trend is very welcome, and to a great extent has reduced the need to
expand undergraduate offerings for majors. Thus, we would not want to discourage undergraduates from taking
the graduate level classes by luring them into a lower number class of similar subject. Nonetheless, we would like
to offer the following course in analytical chemistry, a sub discipline not covered in our graduate curriculum.
CH302 Instrumental Analysis Laboratory
This course would examine fundamental theoretical principles, capabilities, applications, and limitations of
modern analytical instrumentation, with hands-on laboratory experience focused on the development of
correct laboratory work habits and methodologies. Topics will include data analysis, regression, propagation of
error; techniques will include spectrophotometry, mass spectrometry, high performance liquid
chromatography, and atomic absorption spectroscopy. This four-credit course would be structured around
three lecture hours and one five-hour lab section per week.
CH302 is aimed at providing chemistry majors with more options in their required undergraduate courses. An
additional goal of this course is to provide students with the appropriate training to perform undergraduate
research in faculty laboratories. Rather than adding a new requirement, this course would represent the third of a
series of 300 level lab-oriented courses, taken primarily by juniors and seniors, along with the existing CH301
(Synthesis and Analysis), and CH354 (Physical Chemistry Laboratory). The chemistry major requirement would be
altered to require the completion of two of these three courses. Thus, the total number of classes required for the
chemistry major would not increase.
As noted above, expansion of the Department’s offerings to include these courses is predicated upon a concurrent
expansion of Chemistry faculty to support aspirational curricular innovations that are proposed, but typically
unrealized, due to a lack of funding for requisite improvements in facilities or instrumentation. We appreciate that
Chemistry courses involving labs are almost uniquely expensive to offer due to the substantial facilities and supply
costs. Nevertheless, maintaining a comprehensive and high quality curriculum in the life sciences requires
continual investment in faculty and teaching resources. In a global marketplace in which the role of science and
technology continues to grow, this investment is vital to the future success of our students.
4
One such investment that Chemistry has discussed with the CAS Dean’s office is the possibility of hiring another
lecturer to help meet the teaching load in the General Chemistry curriculum. Doing so would help free other
faculty to teach upper-level courses and/or develop curricular innovations for future courses. The addition of
another lecturer would also reduce the number of TF semesters the Department needs to request each term.
Though a partial solution only, a talented lecturer could help Chemistry meet enrollment demands and provide
opportunities for the Department to introduce courses like CH302.
Ongoing and proposed graduate curricular development
The following descriptions provide examples of new courses under development as additions to the Department’s
graduate course offerings in the 2012/2013 academic year.
CH752 Advanced Topics in Chemical Physics: Surface Chemistry and Physics in Nanoscience, Biophysics, and
Biomaterials Science
Instructor: Xin Chen. This course will present basic principles of surface science with emphasis on its
applications in the areas of nano- and/or biological sciences. We will introduce the thermodynamics of
surfaces, hydrophobicities/hydrophilicity, electrophoresis, electrokinetics, and adsorbate-surface interactions
through studying model systems of colloidal particles and solutions, emulsions, macromolecular (protein)
solutions, biomembranes, polymer gels, etc.
The descriptions below provide two examples of new courses under development as additions to the
Department’s graduate course offerings in the 2013/2014 academic year.
CH744 Special Topics in Organic Chemistry: Heterocyclic Chemistry
Prerequisite: CH212 or an equivalent course and permission of the instructor (John Snyder, Corey
Stephenson). The course would examine the structure, properties, synthesis and reactions of heterocyclic
compounds, with a primary focus on heteroaromatic compounds with nonaromatic heterocyclics. Emphasis
will be placed on compounds of significance in natural products and medicinal chemistry, thus focusing on N-,
O-, and S-containing heterocycles.
CH751 Advanced Topics in Physical Chemistry: Topics in Materials Chemistry
Still under a working title, this course would be team-taught by faculty whose research programs focus on
materials science, polymers, and/or nanotechnology. It would target students in Chemistry and disciplines
such as Biomedical Engineering. The curriculum would introduce students to inorganic materials,
nanoparticles, biomaterials, and polymers, and their place in the sub discipline of materials chemistry. (This
offering is particularly relevant with David Bishop now head of the College of Engineering’s division of
materials science and engineering). Potential instructors include Doerrer, Grinstaff, Jasti, and Reinhard.
These courses aspire to broaden the educational mission of our Department, and further develop the range of
offerings available to students in our graduate program. The greatest challenge in realizing the bold vision of
these proposed programs is the pressing need for faculty development.
Integrative Biology Working Group: At the end of 2008 Professor Straub proposed the establishment of an
Integrative Biology Working Group, charged with developing recommendations for faculty and curriculum
development to support the Department’s role in the University-wide Integrative Biology (IB) initiative. This group
was led by Adrian Whitty and additionally comprised Professors Allen, Mohr, Schaus, Tullius, and Xia. An early
recommendation of this group was to focus on the establishment of a Chemical Biology graduate track as being
valuable in its own right and also a useful and appropriate contribution by Chemistry to the broader IB initiative. A
parallel interest in establishing a Chemical Biology track existed in the MCBB graduate program, and so Professor
Ulla Hansen, Director of MCBB, was invited to join the IB Working Group to ensure coordination between these
curriculum development efforts. An additional early recommendation of the IB Working Group was to develop two
faculty proposals in Chemical Biology, one in carbohydrate synthesis/glycobiology, and another in chemical probes
and/or imaging agents, to address gaps in both teaching and research that would be relevant to the new graduate
track. These searches were conducted in 2009-10 and two offers were made. One of these was accepted, resulting
in the addition of Dr. Deborah Perlstein to the department as an Assistant Professor. Professor Perlstein is an
5
expert in the use of chemical approaches to understand bacterial cell division. Professor Perlstein designed and
taught our first graduate course in Chemical Biology (under a Special Topics course number) in Fall 2010 and Fall
2011, as the first concrete step to our establishment of a Chemical Biology graduate curriculum. Plans to submit a
proposal for the course to be permanently added to the department offerings are underway. Plans to further
develop this curriculum are being devised. Recruitment of an additional faculty member in Chemical Biology is
currently in progress, and will lead to additional development of this curriculum for 2012/2013 and beyond.
Development of technical staff for the Chemical Instrumentation Center (CIC)
As of 2007, the Department’s administrative and clerical staffing was comparable to that of 3rd quartile
departments, as documented in the 2005 Council for Chemical Research (CCR) survey. Since then, Chemistry has
made progress in addressing its administrative and technical deficiencies, although staffing in this area remains in
the 3rd quartile according to the 2011 CCR survey. However, particularly with regard to technical staffing, meeting
the demand for technical resources and expertise is a challenge that is outstripping current capacity.
The Department’s technical staff provide essential support to our instructional and research laboratories, as well
as the Chemical Instrumentation Center, which serves as a “core facility” supporting chemical analysis for
members of the Charles River and Medical campuses, along with a growing number of outside users. However,
when compared with averages documented in the 2011 CCR survey, our technical staff is found to be in line with
the average at 3rd quartile institutions (4 against an average of 3.7). Inadequate support for the maintenance of
instrumentation and the training of undergraduate and graduate students limits our departmental research and
teaching activities.
With the recruitment in September 2008 of Dr. Norman Lee as our Mass Spectrometry Instrumentation Specialist,
the departure of Dr. Jonathan Lee at the end of December, and the recruitment of Dr. Paul Ralifo as our NMR
Instrumentation Specialist, the operation of the CIC and the quality of service available to the teaching and
research labs underwent a sea change. As the senior scientist in the CIC, Norman quickly assumed a leadership role
in the Center’s operations. Along with Paul and the Department’s Instrument Technician, Serge Zdanovich, Norman
transformed the CIC from a largely moribund institution into a dynamic, welcoming, and responsive Departmental
resource for research and instruction. He also began an ambitious program of outreach to potential users within
and outside of BU, and started offering training sessions and technical talks on the applications for MS and NMR
instrumentation in research.
With the arrival of Professor Karen Allen in 2008, the Department acquired an X-ray source and laboratory. In the
spring of 2010, the Department hired Dr. Jeffrey Bacon as its new Instrument Specialist: X-ray. This move further
expanded the CIC’s ability to serve the teaching and research needs of a range of users.
However, the CIC’s success has resulted in a workload that threatens to overwhelm the current staff. Norman and
Paul contribute extensively to the Department’s educational programming, and actively participated in designing,
equipping, and bringing on-line the new organic instructional laboratories. Both are regularly called upon to assist
with grants and instrumentation proposals, and, in the absence of a dedicated technician, Paul has become the goto person for an EPR acquired by Professor Sean Elliott under a NSF instrument grant and located in LSEB 932.
Norman also assisted with the layout and renovation of SCI 156/156A as instrumentation space for the analytical
instructional labs, collaborating with instructional faculty and Facilities to arrive at an efficient and practical design.
Despite their broad competence and high level of dedication, Norman and Paul cannot sustain operations for this
critical core facility. With instrumentation located in the central facility in the basement of the east wing of the
Metcalf Center and satellite facilities in LSEB, the workload has begun to exceed their capacity. For this reason,
Chemistry wishes to propose the recruitment of additional technical staff to provide greater coverage of research
and instructional resources throughout the CIC facilities. A long-term benefit of such hires will be the ability to
replace Teaching Fellows during instruction. It would also provide the potential to build a wider base of expertise
through continued “cross-training” between specialties. At a time when demand on the CIC is increasing, adding
further support is essential to ensuring that the Center remains a vital “core resource” for the University. Further
details are available in the budget supplement section.
6
In addition to seeking new staff to meet the expanded responsibilities of the CIC, Chemistry wishes to promote Dr.
Norman Lee to the position of Director of the CIC. This position was last held by Professor Jonathan Lee, and has
remained vacant since 1 January 2009. Norman has served as the de facto director of the CIC since Jonathan’s
departure. In the three years following his hire, Norman has cultivated a high level of professionalism in the
operations of the CIC, and worked exhaustively to expand its capabilities and services. His contributions to the
Department outside of the CIC are also notable, and include expanded involvement of the CIC staff in Chemistry’s
instructional programming; active participation in development efforts such as instrumentation grants; assisting
the Department with purchases of major instrumentation by negotiating with vendors to maximize the
Department’s return on investments like the supplement funds that added to and/or upgraded the analytical
instrumentation available to Chemistry’s undergraduate curriculum. Performance of his caliber is rare, and
something the Department wants to nurture and retain. Promotion to Director of the CIC is an appropriate next
step.
Staff development and departmental office renovations
The deficiencies of the Department’s former administrative office were long recognized inside Chemistry and by
CAS. We are very pleased and appreciative that in 2010, the College committed the funds to create an
environment much better suited to the needs of the present staff and Departmental operations. The new design
groups the three primary “teams” within the office – administration, advising, and finance – in a manner intended
to facilitate the function of each. New offices for the advising team provide space for meeting privately with
students and parents, the financial team enjoys a contiguous space with greater separation from the office
entrance, and the administrative team is grouped around an optimized reception area that provides a far more
welcoming environment for visitors.
Chemistry recognizes a need for continued staff development in a number of areas. With the retirement of
Accounts Coordinator Alicia Downey, Chemistry is recruiting a new staff member to succeed her, and plans to rewrite the PDQ of her position to match that of our other Accounts Coordinator, Maria Farias. Under the new
BUworks system, Chemistry recognizes an increased need for equivalency between these positions, particularly
with so few staff to handle a large day-to-day volume of ordering and accounting.
The role of chemistry and “molecular science” in academic initiatives at Boston University
This is a time of great opportunity for the development of academic programs that reflect the central role of the
molecular sciences in the future of scientific research in medicine, biology, materials science and engineering. That
fact is demonstrated by the historically high enrollments in both our majors and service courses. Curricular
developments and investments in instructional laboratories are essential to support our efforts to see our
academic programs evolve to reflect the current state of knowledge in the molecular sciences, and to provide core
courses that will be part of future academic programs in integrative biology or materials science.
Our requests should not only be seen in the tactical context of meeting our immediate instructional needs. They
should also be viewed as a strategic investment for the University, in supporting a strong “core” academic program
that serves as a keystone in the foundation for interdisciplinary research programs in the natural sciences.

CH171/172/174/273 (Some SAR programs do not require CH273)
Engineering (non-BME):
CH131
Biomedical Engineering:
CH101/102 (instead of CH131)
Neuroscience
CH101/102
Geochemistry
Proposed major
Geophysics and Planetary
Sciences:
CH101 or 131, CH102 recommended
It is also worth noting that students in majors that do not have a Chemistry requirement may still require coursework in
Chemistry if they plan to pursue professional degrees in areas such as medicine. These enrollments are harder to quantify
for the purposes of this document.
3. Undergraduate minors: Using the listing of CAS-approved minors in the current Undergraduate Bulletin, list all (CAS and
other) minors whose requirements can be fulfilled by required or elective coursework in your department.
Chemistry minor:
CH111/112 or CH109/110 or CH101/102/201 and
CH211/212 or CH203/214 or CH203/204/220 and
One advanced 4-credit course (CH232 or 300-level non-research Course)

College requirements and programs: Core Curriculum and Honors Program
We consistently offer four courses in the College Honors Program:
CH111 Intensive General and Quantitative Analytical Chemistry I
CH112 Intensive General and Quantitative Analytical Chemistry II
CH211 Intensive Organic Chemistry I
CH212 Intensive Organic Chemistry II
We aspire to participate in the teaching of the College’s Core Curriculum.
As of AY 2010, CH111/112 will fulfill the WR150 requirement for students.
Our large service courses function as “gateways” to the Chemistry major as well as the Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
major:
CH101 General Chemistry I
CH102 General Chemistry II
CH203 Organic Chemistry I
CH204 Organic Chemistry II
We offer courses that are designed to facilitate “crossover” between the non-majors and majors chemistry sequences. For
example, a student that has taken CH101/102 may take CH201 and then join the intensive majors sequence of CH211/212
for organic chemistry.
A variety of our courses may be used for the purpose of meeting divisional studies requirements in the College:
CH101 General Chemistry I
CH102 General Chemistry II
CH109 General and Quantitative Analytical Chemistry I
CH110 General and Quantitative Analytical Chemistry II
CH111 Intensive General and Quantitative Analytical Chemistry I
CH112 Intensive General and Quantitative Analytical Chemistry II
CH131 General Chemistry for the Engineering Sciences
CH171 Principles of General Chemistry
CH172 Principles of Organic and Biochemistry
Due to our overwhelming enrollments in existing courses, we are not in a position to offer courses for the primary purpose
of divisional studies. With substantial faculty development, we can imagine course development for the purpose of
outreach to an even broader range of students in the College.

Courses offered every other academic year:
CH101, CH102
CH109, CH110, CH111, CH112, CH131, CH171, CH172, CH181, CH182,

CH354, CH421, CH422, CH525
CH458, CH445
As a result of the many programs that our courses serve, there are a substantial number of constraints that demand our
undergraduate course offerings be given regularly and with consistency.

Heating Mantles
Price: $100
Quantity: 60
Total Price: $6,000
Justification: The existing heating mantles in the organic labs are old and becoming a safety hazard. Replacement
of the mantles is a critical need.
Hot Plate/Stirrers
Price: $310
Quantity: 10
Total Price: $3,100
Justification: Hot plate/stirrers are heavily used pieces of minor equipment, and the lab stock includes new and old
units. Because of the high volume of use, older ones break down on a regular basis. This request covers not only
existing units that are aging and ready for replacement, but anticipates the ongoing need for replacements each
year.
Ultrasound Baths
Price: $500

Justification: In CH301, chemistry majors make the transition from simple micro-scale synthesis to gram-scale
diastero- and enantioselective synthesis of stereochemically complex organic compounds. In order to fully
characterize synthetic intermediates and final compounds, a modern HPLC is vital to the educational mission. The
use of such analytical equipment educates our chemistry majors in the use of modern equipment currently utilized
by synthetic/medicinal chemists in the pharmaceutical and biotech industries. This request includes essential
components of the system such as an analytical column, workstation, maintenance contract, solvents (estimated
at $100/student), and a printer to provide data and analysis in hard copy.

2. Instructional Labs Analytical Specialist
Chemistry wishes to hire a Masters-level instrumentation specialist as a new member of the Chemical
Instrumentation Center (CIC) staff, whose main responsibility will be oversight of the analytical instrumentation in
the Department’s instructional labs. As previously discussed, with the expansion of our CIC’s instrumentation, our
technical staff resources are woefully inadequate to maintain and operate our analytical instrumentation, train and
assist research users, and provide educational instruction for graduate and undergraduate students. The
establishment of the undergraduate instrumentation center in our new organic laboratories has further increased
the instrumentation that needs maintenance and user instruction. Given the enrollment in those labs alone
(900+), it is critical that we minimize downtime on any of the instruments.
The occupant of this new position would be specifically tasked to oversee, maintain, operate, and conduct training
for all of Chemistry’s major instructional instrumentation. Our undergraduate educational instrumentation covers
a range of equipment including high-field Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR), infrared (IR), UV-Vis and Atomic
Absorption (AA) spectrometers, and High Performance Liquid Chromatographs (HPLC's). In addition, with the
completion of the new organic laboratories, we have also added state-of-the-art instrumentation in microwave
reactors, Ultraperformance Liquid Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry (UPLC/MS) and Gas ChromatographyMass Spectrometry (GC-MS). Few, if any, other undergraduate laboratories in the world can boast of such
equipment to provide hands-on experience to students. To take full advantage of these resources, however,
requires increased staff support.
Successful recruitment to fill this position will accomplish two goals: first, it will add to our instructional staff a
dedicated specialist with primary responsibility for Chemistry’s non-research instrumentation, whose portfolio will
include instruction and training of undergraduate and graduate students, including those serving as teaching
fellows (TF's) in our laboratory courses. This in turn will free the current MS, NMR, EPR, and X-ray specialists to
return to their primary duties: the maintenance and operation of Departmental research instrumentation inside
41

Supplement II: Budget and Teaching Fellow requests for Academic Year 2012/2013
the CIC and its satellite spaces. It will also reduce the workload on our current lab technician, allowing him to focus
on bench top instructional equipment repair and maintenance in the CIC as well as in individual research groups.
In order to meet these criteria, we anticipate seeking candidates with a Masters-level education or equivalent
experience. Furthermore, any successful candidate will need both an extensive knowledge of analytical techniques,
and an aptitude for instruction at the undergraduate and graduate levels. In the Boston-area marketplace, this
level of education and experience will command an annual salary in the $50,000 - $70,000 range, so we request a
salary line of up to $70,000 to maximize our competitiveness for top candidates. Because we expect this position
to replace one TF position we would otherwise require for our instructional labs, and because having a dedicated
specialist available for full-time maintenance of instrumentation should reduce the need for outside service calls,
we anticipate that creating this position will be close to cost-neutral.

Total Cost: $2,000
Justification: With the acquisition of a suitable unit this year, the Department plans to integrate instruction in highpurity liquid chromatography into the curriculum of multiple courses. As an analytical technique, HPLC uses many
of the same supplies regardless of the type of chemistry it supports. However, because the chemistry varies from
course to course, sharing chromatography columns among multiple users creates a high risk of crosscontamination. The columns are relatively expensive, and providing one to each course offers the best way to
minimize this risk. It also helps extend the life of the instrument. Solvent costs are estimated at $1,000 per course x
8 courses, although actual consumption will vary depending upon the chemistry and number of students involved.
The purchase of vials and caps is by package (100 /pkg).
4. Annual instructional laboratories supplies allowance increase.
Based on continued increases in student enrollments and the expansion of organic chemistry instructional labs
from a bi-weekly to a weekly basis, we anticipate a need for a consistent, annual increase to fully fund supplies for
the instructional laboratories.
5. Undergraduate Assistants (UA)
This funding will support the limited use of UA positions to provide coverage for "stray" laboratory and discussion
sections.
6. Student Employment (908)
We also request funding to help meet increased demand for work-study students to provide office, laboratory, and
grading support under increased enrollments. The Chemistry front office in particular has experienced an
increased need for student employees to assist with reception, general clerical and office tasks, shipping &
receiving logs and notifications, mail sorting, and on-campus mail runs. In addition, with growing workloads and no
increase in permanent staff, Chemistry has found it necessary to hire work/study students and assign them to
individual administrative staff as assistants.
