This subject builds on the content of CH1001 to provide broad exposure of students to the major principles and reactions of relevance to inorganic, organic and physical chemistry. A major emphasis will continue to be the applicability of chemistry in the wider scientific context, particularly in the biological biomedical, earth and environmental sciences. The organic chemistry section will introduce general features of organic reactions, will discuss selected reaction mechanisms, will provide experimental and instrumental techniques for structure determination and will cover the stereochemistry of hydrocarbons. The physical chemistry section will discuss principles of chemical kinetics, will introduce redox and electrochemistry, will describe intramolecular forces and will cover gas laws. The inorganic chemistry section will introduce atomic structure, will discuss bonding and periodicity, will cover chemistry in nature and industry including metallurgy, chemical manufacturing and cycling of elements through the environment. It will also present systematic chemistry of selected groups of the Periodic Table and aspects of the chemistry of the transition metals including their role in biological systems.
