Syllabus:

Physical chemistry focusses on rigorous description of the properties of molecules and the vital processes involved in chemical change, while inorganic chemistry primarily aims at understanding how metallic elements interact with other compounds. The two areas are heavily intertwined and hence taught together in this course, using examples connecting the fundamental components to real life applications across the physical and natural world. The course is designed for students majoring in chemistry but is also suitable for those focussing in biological, medical, environmental, engineering or material sciences. A theory component that extends material from first year is coupled to a vital laboratory practical experience with a strong focus on developing skills to fully characterise and rationalise the physical and chemical properties of molecules and to understand how these aspects impact their reactivity.
