Innovative Curricula

[PS11 textbook cover]Revolutionary developments in the union of chemistry and physics hold the key to solving unprecedented problems at the intersection of science, technology, and an array of rapidly emerging global scale challenges. In particular, concepts central to energy and its transformations, thermodynamics, entropy and free energy, equlibria, acid-base reactions, electrochemistry, quantum mechanics, atomic structure, molecular bonding, kinetics, catalysis, materials and nuclear chemistry are presented with emphasis on the context of (1) world energy sources, forecasts and constraints, (2) the science and technology linking energy and climate, (3) modern materials and technology.
