Aims and objectives

To expand the fundamentals of modern chemistry introduced in Chemistry 1/Introduction to Chemistry, developing further competence in the laboratory along with proficiency in the areas of physical, analytical and organic chemistry.

Unit Learning Outcomes (ULO)

1. Conduct precise, accurate and safe experiments in the areas of analytical, physical and organic chemistry and interpret results in accordance with chemical theory.
2. Describe and apply problem solving in the areas of solubility equilibria and redox reactions.
3. Define key concepts in analytical chemistry and conduct problem solving activities based on the concepts of gravimetry and titrimetry.
4. Apply knowledge of thermodynamics including calorimetry, enthalpy, entropy and Gibb’s energy to problem solving activities.
5. Demonstrate an understanding of chemical bonding in terms of atomic orbitals, valence bond theory and hybridisation.
6. Apply knowledge of organic chemistry to name and draw organic molecules and predict their physical and chemical properties
