This course contains some of the basic concepts in general chemistry and some introductory aspects of organic chemistry. General chemistry covers the topics on chemical kinetics, chemical equilibrium, acids, and bases, acid-base equilibria and solubility and ion-complex equilibria. Organic chemistry covers introduction to organic chemistry, hydrocarbon, aromatic compounds, hydroxyl compounds, carbonyl compound, carboxylic compounds and its derivatives and amines.
On completion of this course, students will be able to:
CLO1 : Apply fundamental concepts and principles associated with kinetics, equilibrium, acid-base, and applications of aqueous equilibria and organic chemistry through their written work and class presentation. (C3, PLO1)
CLO2 : Implement critical thinking through solving problems on how to analyze theoretical chemistry and their application in the field of medical/pharmacy. (C3, PLO2)
CLO3 : Demonstrate the theory of chemistry through creative productions. (C3, PLO4)
