1. Chemistry : matter and measurement

2. Atoms, molecules and ions

3. Mass relationships in chemical reactions

4. Reactions in aqeous solution

5. The electronic structure of atoms

6. Ionic bonds

7. Covalent bonds

8. Covalent bonds and molecular structure

9. Thermochemistry : chemical energy

10. Gases

11. Liquids, solids and phase changes

12. Solutions and their properties

13. Kinetics

14. Chemical equilibrium

15. Acids and bases

16. Aqueous equilibria

17. Thermodynamics : entropy, free energy and equilibrium

18. Electrochemistry

Out of the vast amount of available slides, a selection will be made in function of the time and the topics really essential for Ba1 Biologists.
