Physical Chemistry is the branch of chemistry that deals with the mechanism, the rate and the energy transfer that occur when matter undergoes a change. Understanding the key concepts of physical chemistry is essential for solving practical problems in research and industrial applications. A brief outline of the course is as follows: Quantum chemistry and molecular structure, chemical thermodynamics and applications, electrochemistry and applications, physical chemistry principles involved in analytical chemistry, physical organic chemistry, catalysis, interfacial chemistry and chemical kinetics. The course will comprise of lectures, tutorials and experiments.
Applications are invited from teachers with experience in teaching undergraduate and postgraduate courses in chemistry. Maximum 25 applications will be considered and teachers who wish to participate in the Refresher Course may apply through proper channel with the following details: name, date of birth, gender, e-mail, official and residential addresses, telephone numbers, academic qualifications, courses taught, affiliation, positions held and tenure. It is also essential to submit a brief statement (between 250 and 500 words) as to why they think the Course will help to improve their classroom teaching of Physical Chemistry.
