This course applies wave-mechanical models of bound electrons to account for the electronic structure of atoms via orbital theory and how it is used to explain the similarities/differences in the behavior of various elements in the periodic table. This is followed by the building of numerous molecular systems via applying Molecular Orbital Theory with Group Symmetry. Orbital theory will be applied in interpreting/predicting the electronic interaction with light, chemical reactivity, and kinetic behavior in reaction mechanisms of various organic molecular systems.
