CH1002 - Chemistry: Principles and Applications
|Student Contribution Band:
||College of Science and Engineering
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. Organic Chemistry General features of organic reactions,
reactive intermediates and energetics. Mechanisms and applications of major reaction
types: radical substitution, electrophilic addition, nucleophilic substitution at
saturated carbon, nucleophilic addition and substitution at carbonyl groups. Electrophilic
aromatic substitution. Stereochemistry of hydrocarbons. Spectroscopy and structure
determination. 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. Atomic structure,
Bonding and Periodicity Chemistry in nature and industry including metallurgy,
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.
- describe the major principles and reactions of relevance to inorganic, organic and
- explain such chemical principles and reactions in a wider scientific context;
- apply a range of common laboratory techniques in chemistry.
