Module overview

Physical Chemistry is concerned with the application of physics to the study of chemical systems. Through physical chemistry one can understand and predict the behaviour of chemical systems, thereby allowing these systems to be optimised. This module will provide an introduction to kinetics (how fast chemical reactions happen) and to the fundamental concepts and reasoning of quantum mechanics.
