(Applicable only to targeted subjects for undergraduate students)
This course will learn the basic concepts for the electronic structure and properties of molecule, which these topics are a premise for succeeded several courses in the fifth or sixth semesters such as "quantum chemistry", "molecular structual chemistry", "photochemistry", and "molecular photochemistry". The knowledge learned in the "physical chemistry IB" course is assumed.  
Criterion referenced
