CHEM 361 Fall 2012 Physical Chemistry: Structure and Dynamics

This course integrates a number of physical chemistry topics. In the first part of the course, an introduction to quantum mechanics provides the basis for understanding atomic and molecular structure as well as spectroscopic methods. In the second part of the course we discuss chemical kinetics and molecular reaction dynamics in the gas phase and in solution. Applications of these principles are chosen from a variety of areas, including polymer chemistry, biochemistry, photochemistry, atmospheric chemistry, and solid and liquid state chemistry. Quantitative laboratory experiments and consultation with the scientific literature provide the background necessary for carrying out an independent theoretical or experimental project.
Class Format: lecture, three hours per week; discussion, one hour per week; laboratory, four hours per week
Requirements/Evaluation: evaluation will be based on class participation, problem sets, oral presentations, laboratory work, and an independent project.
