This course students are introduced to the principles of Quantum Theory. These should help in understanding contemporary atomic and molecular structure and chemical reactivity theories. Following this, students are presented the hydrogen atom and multielectronic atom theories, so that they may assimilate basic concepts and understand the different approaches taken in the practical use of these concepts. Students will also learn to calculate the fundamental properties of molecules according to quantum theory, explore ideas regarding chemical bonds and molecular structure, and the main approaches in this area.
