Content

Year 1
Topics include the periodic table and main group chemistry, transition metal chemistry, organic
Chemistry, chemical kinetics, states of matter, chemical energy changes, aqueous equilibria and pH, and macromolecules. You will also study other subjects in years 1 and 2.

Year 2
The topics covered include molecular thermodynamics, organic stereochemistry, quantum mechanics and chemical bonding, organometallic chemistry, main group chemistry, enols and enolates,
spectroscopy, solids and surfaces, aromatic chemistry, coordination chemistry, organic synthesis,
electrochemistry and applied organic chemistry.

Years 3, 4 and 5
If you progress to Honours (years 3 and 4) you will study advanced topics including nanomaterials, organic electronics and photonics, advance materials characterisation, catalysis, supramolecular and polymer chemistry, spectroscopy, electrochemistry, as well as main group and transition metal
chemistry. In your final year you will undertake a research project at the frontiers of the subject with energy, organic LEDs and solar cells, or photonics applications, for example making a Li-ion battery and testing it for electrochemical performance.
