The module of Physical chemistry is composed of Thermodynamics and Chemical kinetics. The component of chemical kinetics is discussed herein.

Environmental health and toxicology focuses on external factors that cause disease, including element of the natural, social, cultural and technological worlds in which we live. This module deals also with the interactions, transformation, fate and effects of natural and synthetic chemicals in the biosphere including individual organisms, populations and whole ecosystems.

The Quantum chemistry module for second year chemistry undergraduate students will prevail strong background in theoretical concepts that are based on quantum mechanics postulates and Schrodinger equation, which later are applied to various chemical aspects.

This module deals with fundamental theories of Chemistry. It is composed by two main parts. The first one is Physical Chemistry including fundamental chemistry laws and concepts , atomic structure, chemical reactions, chemical reactions, solutions; and the second part is Industrial Chemistry including industrial chemistry, water, ceramic and plastics.

  • This course covers fundamentals of protein structure, conformation and structure-function relationships using myoglobin, hemoglobin, insulin, lactate dehydrogenases and ribonuclease.
  • The protein studies include engineering, purification and analysis techniques.
  • It also includes enzyme properties, classification and basic kinetics (uni-substrate reactions) in enzymology studies.
