•Course Purpose
Several topics, which are not treated in Chemistry I and II, of the fundamentals of the Physical Chemistry are lectured in the present class. The topics are chemical kinetics, the theories of ionic equilibrium in aqueous solutions, and, the equilibrium aspects of the electrochemistry.

Students are expected to obtain the following abilities.
(1) To explain the chemical reactions concerning materials sciences on the basis of fundamental reaction kinetics
(2) To understand the equilibrium aspects of acid-base reactions in water solutions
(3) To understand the equilibrium aspects of red-ox reactions in the electrochemical reaction systems
