|Lecturer||:||Katsuyuki MATSUNAGA Professor|
|Atomic arrangements and physical/chemical properties of atoms, molecules, and clusters can be determined by their electronic structures. Therefore, quantum chemistry and molecular orbital theory are essential, which also make it possible to predict and design novel materials. In this lecture, students learn basics of quantum chemistry and molecular orbital theory and attempt to apply them to various materials expected for practical applications.|
|Chemistry basics, linear algebra, Electromagnatism, Quantum mechanics|
|1. Basics and quantum mechanics
2. Wavefunctions of hydrogen atom
3. Wavefunctions of muitielectron atoms
4. Molecular orbital theory
5. Diatomic molecules composed of s atomic orbitals
6. Diatomic molecules composed of p atomic orbitals
7. Diatomic molecules containing two different atoms
7. Molecules of more than three atoms
8. Stability and chemical reactions of molecules
Students should materials given by the lecturer or the corresponding portions of the reference books before each lecture.
|There is no specific text book, but in some cases it may be specified by the lecturer or distributed depending on the content of the lesson.|
|See the reference book titles of the syllabus in Japanese.|
|Evaluate the level of achievement for the target based on the examination.
Understanding and explaining the basic concepts and ideas related to electronic theory and molecular orbital theory for atoms, molecules and clusters.
