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).
