Reactivity of the Elements (F1168)
15 credits, Level 4
This module, Chemical and Electrochemical Reactivity of the Elements, provides an overview of the chemistry of all of the elements and interprets the observed chemical behaviour at both the microscopic level, in terms of fundamental atomic properties, and the macroscopic level, in terms of thermodynamics and electrochemistry.
For each element, the trends in molecular, solution phase and solid state behaviour is given, together with archetypal reactions.
