The tutorials will be delivered in small groups (2-3 students) and focus on problem solving in various areas of chemistry. The main topics include atomic and molecular orbital theory, analytical methods (Mass spectrometry, IR, NMR), organic chemistry with a special focus on mechanisms and underlying physical principles, reaction kinetics and thermodynamics, protein structure and enzymatic reactions. The course will be interactive, intensive, with a high focus on problem solving. Students are expected to improve critical reasoning skills, and their ability to express thoughts verbally.
