Molecular Interactions, 55409
Physical chemistry course, autumn 2013


Forces between molecules govern an enormous range of physical and chemical properties of materials and systems. The structures of solids, liquids and biological systems such as membranes are examples of fields where this topic is of central importance. The Molecular Interactions course describes the nature of different types of non-covalent forces between molecules, and shows how these lead to structural and other properties of materials. The course begins from basic principles, and proceeds to discuss the "hot" state of the art issues. The course Quantum Chemistry (55431) provides useful background.
