Description

This unit of study extends some of the concepts taught in CHEM1101 with emphasis on inorganic and organic chemistry.

The emphasis is on the molecular basis of organic and biochemistry, including drug design and synthesis, and of nanotechnology.

Spectroscopic techniques relevant to organic, environmental and forensic chemistry, are introduced. The laboratory classes develop an appreciation and understanding of the scientific method and include standard research techniques and experimental methodology.

The unit carries a credit point value of 6 and consists of approximately 80 hours of teaching. It contains continuous assessment and concludes with an examination.
