General course objectives:

To give an introduction to the theory of mass- and charge transport, kinetic theory of gases, and reaction dynamics. Furthermore, to give an introduction to the theory of energy states associated with the translational-, rotational- and vibrational motions of molecules, including nuclear- and electron spin, as a foundation for different spectroscopic techniques and statistical thermodynamics.

Learning objectives:

A student who has met the objectives of the course will be able to:
  • Define transport coefficients to be used in the description of non-equilibrium phenomena in thermodynamic systems and apply them in calculations.
  • Explain the kinetic model of gasses.
  • Apply the kinetic model of ideal gasses to calculate transport coefficients for ideal gasses.
  • Apply chemical kinetics to perform calculations of the rate of simple and complex chemical reactions.
  • Explain the quantum mechanical background for the existence of spectra with well defined spectral lines.
  • Describe the interaction between electromagnetic fields and molecules.
  • Determine the structure and properties of molecules from spectroscopy.
  • Explain the background for MW, IR, UV, and NMR spectroscopy.

Content:

Mass and charge transport, diffusion and electrolytic conductivity. The kinetic model of gases. Topics in reaction kinetics, including adsorption and heterogeneous catalysis. Introduction to the atomic-level description of chemical reactions. Interaction between electromagnetic radiation and molecules, quantization of molecular energy, the Schrödinger equation, spectroscopy with microwave-, infrared (IR)- and ultraviolet (UV) radiation, Raman spectroscopy, and nuclear magnetic (NMR)- and electron spin (ESR) resonans spectroscopy.
