Detailed look at how organic molecules enter the environment and at their subsequent distribution among the “spheres” (biosphere, atmosphere, hydrosphere, lithosphere, and pedosophere.) Examines the fates of organic molecules in the environment including hydrolyses, air-oxidation, homolyses, photochemistry, microbial modification, and up-take by living systems. Uptake, distribution, and metabolism of exogenous organics in mammals is examined.

Corequisite courses in chemistry must be taken simultaneously unless previous credit has been earned in one or the other. If one Corequisite course is dropped, the other must be dropped at the same time.
