CEM3005W - Chemistry 3005

72 credits at NQF level 7

Entry Requirements:

CEM2005W, 1000-level full course in Mathematics; completion of or concurrent registration for STA1000F/S is highly recommended.

Course Outline:

This final course for the Chemistry major aims to develop understanding and integrated knowledge of the core disciplines in Chemistry. Lecture material includes topics in wave mechanics and spectroscopy, adsorption and heterogeneous catalysis, solid-state chemistry and X-ray crystallography, dynamics, inorganic reaction mechanisms, organometallic chemistry, further topics in organic structure and reactivity, organic synthesis and organic dynamic stereochemistry. The practical course covers the same topics and aims to develop integrative and interpretive skills. A further aim is to develop skills in writing within the discipline, as well as introducing students to modern research methods.
