Chemical Principles

5.00

Undergraduate

This course will focus on introductory chemical principles, including periodicity, chemical bonding, molecular structure, equilibrium and the relationship between structure and properties. Students will explore stoichiometric relationships in solution and gas systems which are the basis for quantifying the results of chemical reactions. Understanding chemical reactivity leads directly into discussion of equilibrium and thermodynamics, two of the most important ideas in chemistry. Equilibrium, especially acid/base applications, explores the extent of reactions while thermodynamics helps us understand if a reaction will happen. The aim of the laboratory will be to develop your experimental skills, especially your ability to perform meaningful experiments, analyze data, and interpret observations. This is a required course for Chemistry majors, but also satisfies UWE requirements for non-majors.

Since a decade, scientific community especially chemistry has been mobilized to develop new chemistries that are less hazardous to human health and the environment. Several steps were taken to protect both the nature and maintain ecological balance. But still such an effort is in nascent stage. Are we really protecting earth? Are we utilizing nature’s sources wisely? What are the hazards associated with one wrong step…and with several such steps? We are surrounded by chemistry since we wake up in morning till we sleep in night such as toothpaste, soap, cloth, perfume, medicine, plastic furniture, shoes etc. For those of us who have been given the capacity to understand chemistry and practice it as our day to day life, it is and should be expected that we should use it in a sustainable manner. With knowledge comes the burden of responsibility. We should not enjoy this luxury with ignorance and cannot turn a blind eye to the effects of the science in which we are engaged. We have to work hard and put brain waves together to develop new chemistries that are more benign, and safer to mother earth!! Green chemistry Lessons from past for a better future: Need, Limitations and Opportunities. Principles of Green Chemistry and their illustrations with examples: Scales of measurement such as Atom efficiency, E factors etc., homo vs. heterocatalysis, reaction efficiency, toxicity reduction etc. Green reactions: Green alternatives of starting materials, non-risky reagents, benign solvents (Aqueous medium, Ionic liquids, Supercritical fluids, Solvent free reactions, Flourous phase reactions), and reaction conditions (Nonconventional energy sources: Microwave assisted reaction, Ultrasound assisted reactions, Photochemical reactions), catalysis (heterogeneous catalysis, biocatalysis, phase-transfer catalysis), Replacement of Non-Green reactions with Green reactions (Real/Award cases) Safety for sustainable environment: Hazards assessment and mitigation in chemical industry Future trends in Green Chemistry: Green analytical methods, Redox reagents, Green catalysts; Green nano-synthesis, Green polymer chemistry, Exploring nature, Biomimetic, multifunctional reagents; Combinatorial green chemistry; Proliferation of solvent-less reactions; Non-covalent derivatization, Biomass conversion, emission control.

Overview: Ordinary Differential Equations are fundamental to many areas of science. In this course we learn how to solve large classes of them, how to establish that solutions exist in others, and to find numerical approximations when exact solutions can’t be achieved. Further, many phenomena which undergo changes with respect to time or space can be studied using differential equations. In this course, we will also see many examples of mathematical modeling using differential equations.

Topics In Nanotechnology

Undergraduate

The next few years will see dramatic advances in atomic-scale technology. Molecular machines, nanocircuits, and the like will transform all aspects of modern life - medicine, energy, computing, electronics and defense are all areas that will be radically reshaped by nanotechnology. These technologies all involve the manipulation of structures at the atomic level - what used to be the stuff of fantasy is now reality. The economics impact of these developments has been estimated to be in the trillions of dollars. But, as with all new technologies, ethical and legal challenges will arise in their implementation and further development. This course will examine the science of nanotechnology and place it in the larger social context of how this technology may be, and already is, applied. Underlying physical science principles will be covered in lecture sessions and students will read articles from current news sources and the scientific literature. There will be presentations on scientific literature on topics of student interests, to examine the science and applications of a well-defined aspect of nanotechnology of their choosing. Lecture material will focus on the principles behind modern materials such as semi-conductors (organic, inorganic) and novel nanostructures.
