KJC103 Chemistry 1

Is a core unit for the Chemistry major, and for Science, Medical Laboratory Science, Aquaculture and Sports Science students, providing them with the fundamental knowledge and concepts in inorganic, organic and physical chemistry. Inorganic Chemistry covers atomic structure, bonding theories and the systematic chemistry of s- and p- block elements. Organic Chemistry deals with the preparation and reactions of the major classes of organic compounds including industrial applications. Physical Chemistry involves a study of electrochemistry, equilibria, the behaviour of gases, kinetics, thermodynamics and solutions.

KJC161 Chemistry for Life Sciences

Is for students with no previous knowledge of Chemistry who intend to study science, particularly the biological sciences (see also KJC162). The unit provides the background and fundamental knowledge in chemistry required for these areas and highlights applications in this area. It includes an introduction to the properties and structure of matter, physical and chemical changes, and simple bonding theory. Solution behaviour, concentration and related calculations are covered together with acids, bases and the pH scale. General reaction types, the properties of some common elements, the gas laws, nuclear chemistry and oxidation and reduction are also covered.

KJC162 Introduction to Biochemistry

Extends the concepts established in KJC161 (or KJC171) and applies them to biological systems, concentrating on biochemicals and their interconversions. The unit covers basic organic chemistry, pH and buffers, the main classes of biochemicals, proteins, lipids, carbohydrates, DNA, and their synthesis and breakdown.
