2021-2022 Graduate Catalog

CHEM 540 Selected Principles of Physical Chemistry

Some of the well-established physical concepts that allow us to understand basic chemical phenomena at the molecular level will be explored. Topics include, but are not limited to, quantum chemistry, group theory, spectroscopy, and chemical kinetics. Understanding these fundamental physical chemistry principles will provide the basic framework for all other branches of chemistry. Prerequisite: CHEM 232; MATH 161 or 165; PHYC 110 and 112 or 120 and 122. Not open to students who have credit in CHEM 440 or 444.
