Course Outline:

Topics covered at a more advanced level include microscopic and macroscopic concepts, atomic structure, chemical bonding and molecular structure, the chemistry of the elements and inorganic chemistry, chemical equilibrium, acids and bases, solubility, vapour pressure and phase diagrams, thermodynamics, colligative properties, oxidation and reduction, electrochemistry and chemical kinetics. The course includes an introduction to the language of organic chemistry, structure and reactivity in organic chemistry, describing and predicting organic reactivity and the properties and reactivity of biologically important molecules. Practicals aim to develop essential manipulative and technical laboratory skills, as well as to draw links to interpreting the physical world in terms of its molecular nature.
