Topic

Chemical kinetics and dynamics of atoms, molecules

Instructors

James Daniel Gaynor

Meeting Info

Technological Institute LG62: Mon, Wed, Fri 10:00AM - 10:50AM

Overview of class

This graduate level course explores the microscopic dynamics at atomic and molecular levels that give rise to the macroscopic chemical kinetics that are typically understood by a rate of a chemical reaction or process. The course covers both elementary dynamics occurring in gas phases and the more complex dynamics of molecular ensembles in condensed phase environments and at interfaces.
