CH1002 - Chemistry: Principles and Applications
|Student Contribution Band:
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. Physical Chemistry What controls reaction rates? -
Reactions, kinetics and mechanism. Electrochemistry - fundamentals and applications
in industry and nature. Phase equilibria, colligative properties and chemical partitioning
applied to environmental, industrial, physiological and biological process. Organic
Chemistry General features of organic reactions, reactive intermediates, energetics.
Mechanisms and applications of major reaction types including relevant biological
examples: radical substitution, electrophilic addition, nucleophilic substitution
at saturated carbon, nucleophilic addition and substitution at carbonyl groups. Conjugation,
resonance and aromaticity. Electrophilic aromatic substitution. Spectroscopy and structure
determination. Inorganic Chemistry Chemistry in nature and industry, chemical
manufacturing and cycling of elements through the environment. Systematic chemistry
of selected groups of the Periodic Table. Aspects of the chemistry of the transition
metals including their role in biological systems.
- be aware of the applicability of such chemical principles and reactions in the wider
- be familiar with, and competent in the application of, a range of common laboratory
techniques in chemistry;
- have had broad exposure to, and gained an understanding of, the major principles and
reactions of relevance to inorganic, organic and physical chemistry.
