CHEM 3410: Physical Chemistry - Quantum Theory
Credits: 3
Introduces physical chemistry with numerous biological applications: chemical kinetics; introductory quantum theory; chemical bonding; spectroscopy and molecular structure; biochemical transport; and statistical mechanics. Prerequisite: CHEM 1420 or 1810; MATH 1220 or 1320; and PHYS 2020, 2620, or 2415. CHEM 3811 (if required for degree program) may be taken concurrently or after CHEM 3410. Discussion is optional.
CHEM 3420: Physical Chemistry - Thermodynamics
Credits: 3
Introduces physical chemistry with numerous biological applications: properties of gases, liquids, and solids; thermodynamics; chemical and biochemical equilibrium; solutions; electrochemistry; and structure and stability of biological macromolecules. Prerequisite: CHEM 3410. CHEM 3821 (if required for degree program) may be taken concurrently or after CHEM 3420. Discussion is optional.
CHEM 3610: Physical Chemistry for Engineers
Credits: 3
Introduces physical chemistry with numerous biological applications: chemical kinetics; introductory quantum theory; chemical bonding; spectroscopy and molecular structure; biochemical transport; and statistical mechanics.
CHEM 5220: Advanced Physical Chemistry II: Statistical Mechanics
Credits: 3
This course provides an introduction to statistical mechanics for graduate students or highly advanced undergraduates. The course begins with a review of thermodynamics and an introduction to the fundamental assumptions of equilibrium statistical mechanics, continues on to examine both non-interacting and interacting systems of interest, and finally introduces the basic concepts of non-equilibrium statistical mechanics.
CHEM 5224: Reaction Kinetics and Dynamics
Credits: 3
Introduces the practice and theory of modern chemical kinetics, emphasizing reactions occurring in gases, liquids, and on catalytic surfaces. Develops basic principles of chemical kinetics and describes current experimental and analytic techniques. Discusses the microscopic reaction dynamics underlying the macroscopic kinetics in terms of reactive potential energy surfaces. Develops statistical theories of reactions that simplify the description of the overall reaction dynamics. Includes the transition state theory, Rice-Ramsperger-Kassel-Marcus (RRKM) theory for unimolecular reactions, Kramers' theory, Marcus electron transfer theory, and information theory. Presents current topics from the literature and illustrates applications of basic principles through problem-solving exercises. Prerequisite: Undergraduate physical chemistry or instructor permission.
