This module enables students to develop a good
understanding of chemical principles that apply to fields
such as materials science, pharmaceutical sciences and
environmental science. Students will learn to appreciate
how the sub-microscopic properties of atoms and
molecules affect the macroscopic properties of matter;
understand the basis and relevance of chemical reactions
and mechanisms; and appreciate the concepts involved in
chemical reactions such as equilibrium, thermodynamics
and kinetics. Topics covered include stereochemistry and colligative properties of chemical compounds, transition
metal chemistry, phase diagrams, spontaneity of chemical
reactions and chemical kinetics, as well as aspects
of organic chemistry such as electrophilic addition,
nucleophilic substitution and free radical reactions.
