5.112 Principles of Chemical Science

Course Description

5.112 is an introductory chemistry course for students with an unusually strong background in chemistry. Knowledge of calculus equivalent to 18.01 is recommended. Emphasis is on basic principles of atomic and molecular electronic structure, thermodynamics, acid-base and redox equilibria, chemical kinetics, and catalysis. The course also covers applications of basic principles to problems in metal coordination chemistry, organic chemistry, and biological chemistry.

I would really like to begin my studies on chem... But this
vidieo is not available right now. Please, who ever can fix
this, try... Because I am going to begin on the first
lecture of Principals of chemical science. And even though
Metals in Chemistry could be explored and learned by surfing
the web, I would rather listen to a lecture.
