CHM 440 - Physical Chemistry II


MTH 222, PHY 245(3)

Second of two-term sequence CHM 340/440, building on CHM 260/262. Use of the Schrodinger Equation to solve exactly a series of important chemical problems including the hydrogen atom, the rigid rotor, and the harmonic oscillator. Valence-bond and molecular orbital theories of chemical bonding; introduction to group theory. Advanced spectroscopy, including transition probabilities, normal vibrational modes, and photoelectron spectroscopies introduced and used to deduce molecular structure; modern theories of fundamental reaction ratesThree hours lecture weekly.
