1. Students who do not have the necessary prerequisites for this unit should enrol in KRA001 Chemistry Foundation Unit and either KMA002 or KMA003 Mathematics Foundation Units.
2. A chemistry major is recognised by the Royal Australian Chemical Institute (RACI) as meeting the requirements for Graduate Member (MRACI) provided that either a mathematics or physics unit is also taken at 1st year level in addition to both KRA113 and KRA114.
3. If studying this unit off-campus, please note there is a need to attend Hobart for two days to complete laboratory sessions.
Together with Chemistry 1B, this unit is a required prerequisite for those students intending to major in Chemistry and for those intending to proceed to 2nd year chemistry. It provides students with fundamental knowledge and concepts in inorganic, physical, analytical, and organic chemistry, with applications in both the physical and biological sciences. Topics include bonding and structure, thermodynamics and the chemistry of organic functional groups. Laboratory sessions are designed to increase students' manipulative skills and, where possible, to reinforce the lecture program.
