|Title: ||CHEM 311-01, Physical Chemistry, Fall 2006|
|Authors: ||Cafiero, Mauricio|
|Date Issued: ||20-Aug-2006|
|Series/Report no.: ||Syllabi Crn|
|Abstract: ||This semester focuses on Molecular Quantum Mechanics, or Quantum Chemistry, and
Spectroscopy. The concepts we begin to learn here guide the behavior of all of chemistry and
molecular biology and are thus crucial to you in whatever career you choose. The material is
somewhat mathematical, but I do not wish for anyone to get hung up on the math. I will cover
mathematical topics as we need them. If you need any additional help, please ask in class, ask in
my office, or ask in math-help. The four (4) points I would like you to own at the conclusion of
the semester are:
1. Basic quantum mechanical formalism as expressed in simple models
2. How quantum mechanics governs the information we get from spectroscopy.
3. How molecular modeling programs work.
4. How quantum mechanics governs reactivity with an emphasis on organic reactions.|
