Chemistry 2

Check the Handbook for the latest unit information.


You will explore the behaviour and characteristics of chemicals through a number of interesting case studies incorporating a range of significant biological and synthetic molecules. Along the way, you will discuss the formation of inorganic coordination complexes and investigate their role in colour and magnetism, and metals in biological systems. The concepts developed within the workshops and tutorials are complemented through a laboratory program where you will have the opportunity to use a variety of analytical techniques and design their own experiments to solve a range of chemical problems.
