This module is designed to introduce first year students to the properties of the different phases of matter (gases, liquids and solids), viewed from a physical and inorganic chemistry perspective. The module considers the various types of interactions that occur between atoms and moleculesm and how these influence the molecular behaviour and characteristics of the various phases of matter. The review of solid structures includes an introduction to crystallography and diffraction, whilst in the final section of the module, discussions of the liquid phase are extended to aspects of solution chemistry.
