Description

Organic, inorganic, analytical and physical chemistry.

The topics covered by this course are:
- Organic and Bio-organic Chemistry
- Analytical Chemistry (chromatography)
- Physical Chemistry (surfaces and catalysis)

Learning Outcomes

  • Goal:
    The goal of the course is to provide students with the chemistry background needed to better understand industrial chemical processes. The material will be related to industrial processes implemented in New Zealand and internationally.

    Learning Outcomes:
  • Understand the functioning of catalytic systems for chemical synthesis, with particular emphasis on catalysis at surfaces as it pertains to industrial reactions.
  • Develop detailed understanding of selected industrial catalytic processes.
  • Have a working understanding of the fundamental organic chemistry underlying many industrial synthetic processes.
  • Understand how the basics of chemistry can be applied in the industrial production of polymers.
  • Develop understanding of the theory and basic application aspects of a variety of characterisation methods (chromatography, mass spectrometry and other selected spectroscopic techniques) relevant to R&D and QA.

Prerequisites
