Industrial Chemistry

This course is the link from basic chemistry to industry. It is designed to examine various aspects of reactions in industrial chemical processes such as electrochemistry, balancing chemical equations using the half-cell method, chemical kinetics, reaction order, phase diagrams and ion exchange. Principles of various types of chemical conversion such as distillation and extraction are discussed, as well as the concepts of electricity. Hazard Analysis is introduced in context of both chemical and electrical safety.
