CHM 440 - Physical Chemistry II


CHM 262 , MTH 222 , PHY 245  . (3).

Second of two-term sequence CHM 340 /440, building on CHM 260 /CHM 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 rates. Three hours lecture weekly. Graded ABCDE.
