Chemistry Capstone - CBMS302
This unit investigates some areas of current chemistry, such as developments in Green Chemistry, development of organic solar cells, alternative fuels, and similar areas. You will be able to apply your chemistry knowledge and skills to issues relevant to our current and future society. We will look at the idea of the “ethical chemist”, and through workshops with industry employers and recruiters we will get you ready to apply for positions in industry and academia. An important part of the course will be a self-directed laboratory investigation into a topic of current interest, for example, biodiesel synthesis and characterisation, development of novel materials, and new synthesis methods. You will plan and carry out the investigation, and report on the outcomes. You will have the opportunity to use sophisticated research instruments and to refine your laboratory skills.
