CHEM 474 - Chem Quantum Mechanics & Spectroscopy


2 credit(s)
An advanced physical chemistry course focusing on quantum mechanics and its applications toward chemical spectroscopy. The study of quantum mechanics will apply quantum principles and mathematical methods to fundamental chemical systems: the atom, diatomic and polyatomic molecules. Molecular electronic structure and its applications to predict molecular properties will be emphasized. Electronic structure computational methods will be introduced. An understanding of quantum effects in molecules will inform the study molecular spectroscopy techniques. Spectroscopic techniques covered include rotational, vibrational, electronic, and magnetic methods. The course includes a laboratory component to complement the in-class work.
Prerequisite(s): CHEM 370  with a minimum grade of C.
