Content

Year 1: The topics covered include: The periodic table and main group chemistry; transition metal chemistry; organic chemistry; chemical kinetics; theoretical chemistry; chemical energy changes; aqueous equilibria and pH; macromolecules.

You will also study two other subjects in year 1 according to your interests: see Degrees in Arts, Science and Social Sciences.

Year 2: Your second year builds on the first-year course and involves the following topics:
Molecular thermodynamics; organic stereochemistry; quantum mechanics, chemical bonding and symmetry; organometallic chemistry; main group chemistry; enols and enolates; spectroscopy; kinetics; aromatic chemistry; coordination chemistry; organic synthesis; biophysical chemistry; applied organic chemistry.

You will also study one or two other subjects in year 2 according to your interests: see Degrees in Arts, Science and Social Sciences.

Years 3, 4 and 5: If you progress to Honours (years three and four) you will study advanced topics in chemistry including aspects of synthetic methods, nanoscience, catalysis, quantum mechanics, biomolecular interactions and transition metal chemistry. In your final year you will undertake a research project at the frontiers of the subject.
