The molecular world

Introduction

This course 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 course 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.
