This course is designed to provide students with a basic understanding of chemical principles and the language of chemistry in order to better describe the properties and reactions of elements and compounds. Laboratory sessions will allow students to apply their knowledge and develop their practical skills. Students will be introduced to key chemical principles as they study a range of chemical reactions, including precipitation reaction, oxidation-reduction reactions, acid-base reactions, equilibrium reactions and some simple organic reactions, throughout the course. Key chemical principles covered include; atomic structure, chemical bonding, Bronsted-Lowry theory of acids and bases, Lewis Diagrams, molecular shape, energy and enthalpy in chemistry, Le Chatelier’s principle, qualitative and quantitative analysis and the mole concept. As this is an introductory course it has been designed to allow for students with little or no background in chemistry. However, students with a weak chemistry background will find the course challenging and will need to spend more time studying in their own time.
