Within SCCHM 1002, students will build on introductory topics introduced in SCCHM 1001 to investigate organic and inorganic chemistry topics in more detail. On completion of this course students will have gained experience in systematic naming of organic compounds and recognition of functional groups, as well as investigated the behaviour and reactivities of a number of different classes of organic molecules. Biologically significant molecules will feature as case studies in both organic and inorganic topics. Students will discuss the formation of transition metal complexes and rationalise their unique physical properties including colour and magnetism. The concepts developed within the lectures and tutorials are complemented through a laboratory program where students will have the opportunity to develop laboratory techniques and design their own experiments to solve a range of chemical problems.

* excluding students enrolled in a Postgraduate Clinical Psychology, Professional Pathway Psychology or Professional Pathway Social Work program. For accredited program and student contribution information please visit our CSP page.
Note: Due to the Job-ready Graduates Package new funding clusters and contribution amounts will take effect in the 2021 academic year. Grandfathering arrangements will be in place for students who would see an increase in their contribution amounts. Under these arrangements, students who commenced their course of study before 1 January 2021 facing increased student contribution amounts for a unit, will instead have their student contribution and Australian Government contribution amounts remain as they were under the previous arrangements (with existing rates being indexed by CPI each year). If continuing students are enrolled in units that will see their student contribution amount lowered, their student contributions will be the lowered amount
