Chemistry helps us understand the world around us – our bodies, the air we breathe, the ground on which we stand and so, so much more. Humanity’s knowledge of chemistry helps us to meet our basic needs and develop further technologies to improve our quality of life. This course will take your chemistry knowledge up to a UK A Level standard.
The Chemistry Diploma Course explores the quantitative relationships of atoms and molecules, the structure and properties of atoms, the three states of matters and the interaction between the molecules in each of them, and the types of chemical bondings and their properties.
We’ll look into the entropy and enthalpy change of various chemical reactions, electrical and chemical changes, the equilibrium process and reversible chemical reactions, and the factors that affect the rate of a chemical reaction.
You’ll examine patterns in chemical and physical properties of the elements in the periodic table, take an in-depth look into the trends of the properties and uses of group 2 and group 17 elements, and discover the physical and chemical properties of transition elements, nitrogen and sulphur.
The course explains the naming conventions, organic reaction terminology and structures of organic molecules, the properties and uses of different types of hydrocarbons, and the characteristics and chemical reactions of hydroxyl compounds and halogen derivatives and carboxylic acids, carbonyl compounds and derivatives (acyl chlorides and esters).
By studying this course, you will:
- Further your chemistry knowledge
- Gain a better understanding of atoms, molecules, compounds, and states of matter
- Become familiar with the processes that occur during chemical reactions
- Discover more about elements in the periodic table
