  • Overview

    Course Objectives:
    We always encounter a variety of chemical transformations in natural and
    engineering systems. To quantitatively probe into the phenomenon, the topics to
    be covered in this course include the chemical principles of thermodynamics,
    chemical equilibrium, and kinetics. With the basic knowledge, this course will
    deal with acid-base, complexation, precipitation-dissolution, and reductionoxidation

    Failure to attend an exam on time is recorded as a zero except when it is
    unavoidable because of legitimate emergency. In such a case, it is desired that
    the instructor be contacted before the exam. Adjustment of an exam score will be
    made only within one week after the exam is returned to the students. No extra
    work will be provided for students wishing to improve their grade.

    Academic Integrity:
    Maintaining high level of academic integrity standard is very important. During
    the coursework, a particular attention should be given to plagiarism. Discussion
    between students about assignments and projects is encouraged. However,
    copying another student's work, or letting your own work be copied, is
    unacceptable. More detailed definition of plagiarism can be found at the Korea
    University Policy for Academic Conduct. Instances of plagiarism will be dealt
    with in accordance to the Korea University Policy for Academic Conduct. Such
    instances will be reported to the Head of School and a record will be kept of the
