Unit Description

This unit is the second half of an introduction to chemical principles required for further study in chemistry and numerous other scientific disciplines. It requires prior completion of CHEM110, and builds upon the foundation laid in that unit. CHEM120 comprises further aspects of physical chemistry (atomic structure and bonding, and reaction kinetics), inorganic chemistry (nonmetals, coordination chemistry) and organic chemistry (alkanes, alkenes, alkynes and arenes, oxygen-containing organics, organic spectroscopy and bioorganic chemistry).

Materials Textbook information will be displayed approximately 8 weeks prior to the commencement of the teaching period. Please note that textbook requirements may vary from one teaching period to the next.
Disclaimer Unit information may be subject to change prior to commencement of the teaching period.
Assessment Assessment information will be published prior to commencement of the teaching period.
Learning Outcomes (LO) Upon completion of this unit, students will be able to:
  1. describe, interpret and explain introductory physical chemistry concepts - bonding and molecular structure and kinetics;
  2. describe, interpret and explain introductory inorganic chemistry concepts - coordination chemistry;
  3. describe, interpret and explain introductory organic chemistry concepts - alkanes, alkenes, alkynes and arenes, oxygen-containing organics, organic spectroscopy and bioorganic chemistry;
  4. analyse and solve simple mathematical and conceptual chemistry problems;
  5. apply the theory and demonstrate practical skills in simple chemical experiments; and
  6. demonstrate skills in oral, written, graphical and numerical communication, social responsibility within the laboratory and for the environment, information literacy and team work.
