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
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
- 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
- Determine the structure and properties of molecules from
- Explain the background for MW, IR, UV, and NMR
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
