KEMM30 Molecular driving forces and chemical bonding

The course is worth 15 credits and runs full time during the first half of the autumn semester.

Dive into the atomic and nanoscale world and learn how molecules and atoms interact and bond with each other. Get a grip on temperature and why it is so important in controlling balances in chemistry and living cells. We cover spectroscopy, quantum chemistry, intermolecular interactions, statistical thermodynamics, and a primer on using Python programming in chemistry.
