It is a 6 CFU physical chemistry course for students of the Master of Science in medical and pharmaceutical biotechnology.
Acquiring rigorous methodology to describe as accurately as possible the fundamental phenomena that are the basis of chemical systems; knowing how to understand and use the minimum mathematical formalism required to interpret them.
System definition, path definition, definition of state function; enunciation of the three principles
first principle: heat, work, U, definition of H; Joule experience;
isobar, isotherm, cycle Hess, equations of Kirchhoff relationship Mayer; cycle on the isobaric-isotherm;
second principle: definition of entropy according to classic thermodynamics;
definition of entropy according to statistical thermodynamics; dependence of S by T and V;
definition of G function; the Van't Hoff isotherm and isobar;
The G applications:
osmotic pressure; Clausius Clapeyron equation,
boiling point elevation and freezing point depression, pH, pK,
mixtures: ΔG, ΔS, ΔH; basic concepts of binary mixtures on ideal conditions and diversions.
The electromagnetic spectrum, the wave parameters;
dualism of electromagnetic radiation; introduction to vibrational spectroscopy: IR;
IR: the harmonic model, anharmonicity correction, internal and symmetry coordinates;
electronic spectroscopy, Beer's Law, UV-visible, basic concepts of fluorescence and phosphorescence;
brief presentation of instrumentation (FTIR);
Introduction and definition of reaction rate;
reactions case studies;
methods to evaluate the order of reaction;
influence of T on the reaction rate constant k
Dispense su AulaWeb per ogni argomento e “Chimica fisica” di Peter W. Atkins (consultabile presso Biblioteca DCCI).

Oral examination in which the student answers questions about the topics covered in class;
notably, for the thermodynamics he must prove the ability to set a problem.
