CHE1APL

2020

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

Applications of Chemistry builds on the foundation concepts and knowledge of the first semester chemistry subjects (CHE1CHF and CHE1GEN) to prepare you to advance to second year studies in chemistry and related disciplines, or apply chemistry knowledge and skills within their chosen discipline. The subject is focused on applications of chemistry to a broad range of fields, including the manufacture of synthetic materials, identifying and alleviating chemical pollution, and the chemistry of living organisms.
