Topics covered include:
Monitoring the Environment The Greenhouse Effect and its impact Anthropogenic Effects Ocean Acidification PC Smog Chromatography Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy (AAS)
Managing Chemical Processes Collision Theory Basics Factors affecting the Rate of Reaction Endothermic vs Exothermic Reactions Equilibrium and Yield Equilibrium Position Equilibrium Constant (Kc) Kc Formula, Interpreting Kc, Calculations Le Chatelier's Principle % Yield
Organic and Biological Chemistry Physical Properties Review Alcohols; Fermentation, Ethanol Production Aldehydes and Ketones Carboxylic Acids Amines Esters Amides Triglycerides Proteins
Managing Resources Photosynthesis, Aerobic and Anaerobic Respiration Renewable and Non-Renewable Resources Complete vs Incomplete Combustion Energy Calculations Redox and Metal Reactivity Review Flow and Fuel Cells Water; Coagulants, Chlorination, Desalination Soil; Soil Silicates, Nitrogen Cycle, Fertilisers, Eutrophication, Acid Rain Polymers; Thermoplastics vs Thermoset, Physical Properties, Biodegradability, Types of Plastics Metals; Metal Production, Electrolysis, Recycling Benefits, Composite Materials
