Chemistry is the study of materials and their behaviour.
These materials are from an enormous range, including metals medicines, plastics, dyes, ceramics, fertilisers and fuel. Chemists look at how and why materials behave the way they do and how we can create or modify materials to better suit our needs. This course introduces you to the fundamentals of chemistry and will provide you with a sound background in chemistry through the study of topics such as equilibria, the periodic table and reaction rates.
