Topics will include the nature of chemistry, green chemistry, bonding, thermodynamics, electrochemistry, kinetics, equilibrium and control of chemical reactions. Examples will be drawn from biomedical science, food science and industrial applications.
Laboratory reports (4 x 10% each) 40%, minor case study 15%, major case study (part 1) 15% and (part 2) 30%. To be eligible to obtain a pass in this unit, students must achieve at least 50% in the laboratory component, in addition to the normal requirement of at least 50% overall for the unit.
