Very intense unit. Lots of thermodynamics and a tonne of maths which is hard and painful to work through (worth half the course). Assessments started immediately with no real guidance on what to do - Lab report due every week starting from the very first lab :( Enjoyed the last couple of weeks when it moved to chromatography the most. Exam and tests were really hard.

Very demanding unit, with weekly lab reports it requires a lot of time. The thermodynamics section is not very well prepared and unclear when being taught in the lectures. The exam was very difficult and required a lot of study throughout the semester which felt unachievable with the labs running consistently. Chromatography and UV/Vis as well as is probably the most well laid out part of the unit. Starts off very difficult. Was a good experience overall just poorly organised and pretty much threw you into the deep end with lab reports.

One of the craziest units I have done so far. With 12 labs that runs starting from week 2 to week 13 and having the lab reports due exactly a week after it was carried out, the workload is extremely heavy. I would advise you to not do it unless you are majoring in Chemistry. I found the lecturers somewhat unenthusiastic in teaching, which made it less enjoyable to learn. The workload makes it hard to juggle with that of other units.
