Chemistry (6 points)


Leader: Dr Patrick Perlmutter

Malaysia First semester 2003 (Day)
Clayton Second semester 2003 (Day)
Malaysia Second semester 2003 (Day)

Synopsis: Usually, students would need either CHM1011 or CHM1031 to progress to CHM1022. Within CHM1022, students will gain an understanding of the structure of atoms and molecules from the perspective of kinetics and equilibria through to their involvement and reactivity in biologically important molecules e.g. carbohydrates, amino acids, proteins and nucleic acids. Along the way, students will encounter the importance of nuclear and radiochemistry, and how to use modern spectroscopic techniques to solve structural problems in chemistry. The concepts developed within the lectures are strengthened in the laboratory and with the aid of computer-based tutorials and tests.

Assessment: Examinations (3 hours): 60% + Laboratory work: 20% + Computer tests (6 in total): 20%

Contact Hours: Three 1-hour lectures and one 3-hour laboratory or tutorial per week

Prohibitions: CHM1042, GAS1282, CHM1616, CHM1639, GAS1202
