Introductory Chemistry is designed for students entering University with little or no previous background in Chemistry. The course will provide basic descriptions of atomic and molecular structure, nomenclature, the Periodic Table, stoichiometry, equilibrium, kinetics, common reaction types, acids and bases, and the fundamentals of organic chemistry. Note: Enrolment in CHEM1001 is not recommended for students who have already achieved an adequate performance in HSC Chemistry (or equivalent).CHEM1001 does not qualify as a prerequisite for any UNSW course, and students intending to progress to Level II Chemistry must subsequently complete, in sequence, CHEM1011/CHEM1021, or CHEM1031/1041. Students who complete CHEM1001 can count this course as a Level 1 course towards the total units of credit (UoC) for the Science component of their degree. Students who are currently enrolled in, or have already completed, any CHEM course, or MATS1101, or an equivalent course, are not eligible to enrol in CHEM1001.
