Chemistry: Quantum Mechanics to Biocatalysts
Participation can be acknowledged under Preparation for HE on your UCAS application form.
- To gain an understanding of why chemical reactions happen.
- To explore ideas not covered in AS or A2 in order to obtain a better idea of how different aspects of chemistry are interrelated: this should help link ideas from molecular orbital theory, thermodynamics, kinetics, organic and inorganic chemistry.
- Seminars will be interactive and require active student participation and discussion of ideas.
- Students will work in small groups to solve questions and present answers to exercises.
There will be the opportunity to do some experimental work in the Department of Chemistry, University of Cambridge, as well as a visit to a local chemical company.
