Theoretical Chemistry, Analytical Chemistry, Mathematical & Physical Tools University of Bordeaux
The course is divided into three classes CT3 (Theoretical Chemistry3), CA (Analytical Chemistry) and CSC3 (Mathematical &PhysicalTools). CT3 allows for the in-depth study of the molecular orbital model, withdifferent approximation levels, for polyatomic systems (Hückel theoryand application to p-conjugated systems, spectroscopy and reactivity).Applications to the determination of molecular structures and reactionpathways are also proposed.CA focuses on the description of severaloptical spectroscopy techniques useful in analytical chemistry, namelyabsorption and emission atomic and molecular electronicspectroscopies, as well asinfrared absorption vibrational molecularspectroscopy. A special emphasis is given to the explanation of thedifferent light-matter interaction mechanisms and differentapplications of these techniques in analytical chemistry. CSC3 provides mathematical and physical tools useful for therepresentation and the understanding of physicochemical phenomena. Itfocuses on integral calculation (simple, double or triple integral)in the spherical coordinate system to take up problems about molecularorbital overlap integrals and a few problems in molecularspectroscopy. Statistical tools relevant to take up the notions ofBrownian motion and probability for atomistics andchemicalthermodynamics are also presented.
CONTINUOUS ASSESSMENT (40% OF OVERALL MARK) - CT3 Homework, 16.67% of overall mark - CA remote exam – 45 min,10% of overall mark - CSC3 remote exam – 1h00, 13.33% of overallmark FINAL ASSESSMENT (60% OF OVERALL MARK) - CT3 exam - 1h00, 25 % of overall mark - CA exam- 1h00, 15% ofoverall mark - CSC3 exam – 1h00, 20% of overall mark The firstsession takes place in April. In the case of insufficient results, a second session is organized forthe final exam, either as a written exam or an oral session, dependingon the number of students. This 2nd session takes place at the end ofJune.
