CM3537: CHEMISTRY FOR STUDENTS OF PHYSICAL SCIENCE (II) (2019-2020)

Last modified: 25 Sep 2019 09:58


Course Overview

This course deals with important aspects of physical chemistry via a series of lectures, tutorials and laboratory experiments.  There are two main themes of study. Students will be introduced to the fundamentals of spectroscopy and will gain a deeper understanding of the nature of chemical bonding. An introduction to the thermodynamics of important electrochemical systems will be given.  Electrochemical cells such as the galvanic cell will be described, which derives electrical energy from the chemical reactions taking place within the cell.
