Course Description

This course will build upon previous courses to cover advanced material in the fields of modern inorganic and physical chemistry.

Inorganic chemistry will cover the study of the transition metals including the rare earth and radioactive elements, and also the reactions, structure, and properties of inorganic compounds.

Physical chemistry will deepen the understanding of atomic and molecular structure and chemical bonding. The study of polymers will include structures, stereochemical aspects and physical properties.


Details for second half-session courses, including assessments, may be subject to change until 23 December 2022.
