CHEM3011 builds on previous physical chemistry content and deepens students’ understanding and ability to utilise contemporary computational and experimental methods. It will explore the phenomenological nature of matter at the quantum scale.
The first part of the course focuses on establishing the theoretical foundations and introducing powerful new theories including statistical thermodynamics and symmetry. The second part of the course introduces students to the application of these methods in modern computational chemistry. The third part of the course illustrates modern experimental techniques such as laser spectroscopy to elucidate chemical reactions down to the femtosecond timescale.
Throughout the course, there will be an emphasis on applications of these techniques, for example, in atmospheric chemistry, astrochemistry and organic chemistry.
