About Course

Advanced Chemical Thermodynamics (CTs) and Kinetics.

This course will cover classical/ macroscopic and statistical thermodynamics and kinetics developed to explain a variety of physicochemical phenomena with applications in Chemistry. This course is designed as an advanced level course to the broad area of thermodynamics and kinetics and the lectures will be pitched at the level of advanced undergraduates (senior-level) as well as graduate students.

INTENDED AUDIENCE : BSc/BS/ Int-MSc (BS-MS) – 3rd year BE/BTech/ Int-MTech – 2nd year MSc/Int-PhD – 1st/2nd year PhD – 1st year
