TEACHING MATERIALS  AULAWEB 
It is a 6 CFU physical chemistry course for students of the Master of Science in medical and pharmaceutical biotechnology.
Acquiring rigorous methodology to describe as accurately as possible the fundamental phenomena that are the basis of chemical systems; knowing how to understand and use the minimum mathematical formalism required to interpret them.
Classroom lectures.
Thermodynamics
System definition, path definition, definition of state function; enunciation of the three principles
first principle: heat, work, U, definition of H; Joule experience;
isobar, isotherm, cycle Hess, equations of Kirchhoff relationship Mayer; cycle on the isobaricisotherm;
second principle: definition of entropy according to classic thermodynamics;
definition of entropy according to statistical thermodynamics; dependence of S by T and V;
definition of G function; the Van't Hoff isotherm and isobar;
The G applications:
osmotic pressure; Clausius Clapeyron equation,
boiling point elevation and freezing point depression, pH, pK,
metabolism;
mixtures: ΔG, ΔS, ΔH; basic concepts of binary mixtures on ideal conditions and diversions.
Molecular Spectroscopy
The electromagnetic spectrum, the wave parameters;
dualism of electromagnetic radiation; introduction to vibrational spectroscopy: IR;
IR: the harmonic model, anharmonicity correction, internal and symmetry coordinates;
Raman spectroscopy;
electronic spectroscopy, Beer's Law, UVvisible, basic concepts of fluorescence and phosphorescence;
brief presentation of instrumentation (FTIR);
Kinetics
Introduction and definition of reaction rate;
reactions case studies;
reversible reactions;
methods to evaluate the order of reaction;
influence of T on the reaction rate constant k
enzymatic catalysis
Thermodynamic exercises
