10 Credits SPRING

Pre-requisites: ACE0357

Aims/Description: This unit develops students understanding of a variety of essential facts, principles and concepts from different branches of Chemistry, including physical, organic, inorganic and analytical. It is designed as an extension of the Foundations of Chemistry A module, developing concepts encountered in that module, and introducing new material. Topics covered include spectroscopic techniques, common reactions and mechanisms, especially of the alkanes and alkenes, polymers, reactions of specific groups, redox reactions, equilibria and energies of reactions. There will be opportunities to apply this knowledge to core case studies surrounding the biological and chemical sciences, and laboratory sessions.

Restrictions on availability: Only available to students on DLL FY programmes

Staff Contact: Julie Cook
Teaching Methods: Seminars, Problem solving, Laboratory work, Independent Study
