Revised Nuffield Advanced Chemistry: Surface Chemistry
This was one of the six Special Studies to feature in the Revised Nuffield Advanced Chemistry course. Each student was expected to work through one of the studies in about four weeks. The aim was to show students how chemistry is applied in agriculture, industry, and medicine, and to help them to appreciate that the social and economic aspects of science must be considered.
Purposes of the Special Study
1. To show, by means of examples, the importance of the structure and properties of interfaces in understanding many natural and industrial processes.
2. To survey briefly the wide range of everyday phenomena in which surface chemistry plays an important role.
3. To illustrate the phenomena of surface chemistry by means of a number of simple practical exercises.
Chapter 1: What is surface chemistry?
Chapter 2: What is in a packet of detergent?
Chapter 3: What is in a tin of paint?
Chapter 4: The physical chemistry of surfaces and dispersed systems
Chapter 5: Further applications of surface chemistry
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
