Requisite(s): 65307 Physical Chemistry 1
This subject investigates the chemistry of surfaces and interfaces, covering such topics as surface thermodynamics yielding concepts of surface energy of solids. It also covers surface tension of liquids, adsorption isotherms, surfactants and micelles, wetting spreading, and surface energy and colloidal (or nanoparticulate) systems. The subject uses concepts introduced in 65212 Chemistry 2 and 65307 Physical Chemistry 1 to aid the development of models for the understanding of the observed properties of interfaces. The emphasis on the chemistry of interfaces is important in underpinning the development of nanoscale systems.
