CHEM5313 - The Forces of Chemistry

Credits: 3
Forces of attraction are at work in chemistry. Understanding the interactions resulting from intermolecular and intramolecular forces generates deeper awareness of the possibilities and limitations of the underlying systems. Topics include the impact of chemical forces on the states of matter, boiling and melting points, vapor pressures, and viscosities. The course also explores van der Waals’s forces: dipoledipole interactions, hydrogen bonding, and London dispersion.
