|Subject Overview:|| |
Upon completion of 610-211, students should have an appreciation for the rates and mechanisms of enzyme catalysed reactions and environmentally significant atmospheric processes; understand the concepts of entropy and free energy and their application to chemical and biological systems; understand the interactions between molecules and light and its use in the determination of molecular structure; and understand modern views of molecular structure and the interaction of light with matter and its chemical consequences.
The subject covers the dynamics of molecular processes; energy transformation and storage in chemical and biological systems; the interaction between molecules and light and its relationship to molecular structure; and molecular structure and the harnessing of energy by absorption of light.
|Assessment:||Written assignments not exceeding 30 pages due during the semester (15%); a 3-hour written examination in the examination period (85%).|
|Prescribed Texts:||Physical Chemistry (PW Atkins), 5th edn, OUP, 1994|
|Breadth Options:||This subject is a level 2 or level 3 subject and is not available to new generation degree students as a breadth option in 2008. |
This subject or an equivalent will be available as breadth in the future.
Breadth subjects are currently being developed and these existing subject details can be used as guide to the type of options that might be available.
