|Core Participation Requirements:||
For the purposes of considering request for Reasonable Adjustments under the Disability Standards for Education (Cwth 2005), and Students Experiencing Academic Disadvantage Policy, academic requirements for this subject are articulated in the Subject Description, Subject Objectives, Generic Skills and Assessment Requirements of this entry.
This subject covers key concepts related to the stereochemical and electronic properties of molecules and the methods central to their study. Important elements of the subject include the spectroscopic characterisation and quantification of materials by a range of spectroscopic techniques, molecular orbital techniques and the application of approaches based on molecular symmetry and group theory to the understanding of molecular properties, stereo-selective reactions, bonding and spectroscopy. These topics have applications to advanced materials, light emitting polymers, chemical analysis and catalysis in biological and industrial systems.
Upon completion of this subject students should;
Five short tests each of approximately 90 minutes duration conducted on-line using the learning management system (LMS) for a total of 20%; the tests will run in weeks 2, 4, 7, 10 and 12 and the mark for this component of the assessment will be based on the average of the four highest marks with each test contributing equally to this component of the assessment. A three hour examination at the end of the semester will contribute 80% to the final grade.
