This unit is an adapted extract from the course The molecular world (S205) [Tip: hold Ctrl and click a link to open it in a new tab. (Hide tip)]

This unit will provide you with a detailed understanding of some of the important problems and topics that are being studied by the chemists of today, and of the ways in which associated problems might be solved by chemical methods. But to acquire this understanding you must have a good grasp of fundamental chemical ideas, which in this unit are covered under seven main headings and an overview. Each of those headings consists of a general idea that is of great importance to chemists. We begin with the idea that comes closest to defining the nature of chemistry itself.
