Research Topic: Advanced Physical and Analytical Chemistry - CBMS797

This unit will build on fundamental concepts in physical and analytical chemistry to explore themes emerging in the field of chemistry and its global impacts. It will connect the underpinning physical chemistry topics (e.g., spectroscopy, quantum chemistry, kinetics) to the application methods employed by analytical chemistry.

The unit will be taught extensively through the primary literature and will provide students with hands on experience in cutting edge tools required to understand and analysis fundamental chemical processes. Exemplars of current applications of physical and analytical chemistry include the global impacts of, for instance, greenhouse gas detection and quantification, distribution of persistent organic pollutants, and the determination of the structures of novel nanomaterials.
