We always encounter a variety of chemical transformations in natural and
engineering systems. To quantitatively probe into the phenomenon, the topics to
be covered in this course include the chemical principles of thermodynamics,
chemical equilibrium, and kinetics. With the basic knowledge, this course will
deal with acid-base, complexation, precipitation-dissolution, and reductionoxidation
Failure to attend an exam on time is recorded as a zero except when it is
unavoidable because of legitimate emergency. In such a case, it is desired that
the instructor be contacted before the exam. Adjustment of an exam score will be
made only within one week after the exam is returned to the students. No extra
work will be provided for students wishing to improve their grade.

Maintaining high level of academic integrity standard is very important. During
the coursework, a particular attention should be given to plagiarism. Discussion
between students about assignments and projects is encouraged. However,
copying another student's work, or letting your own work be copied, is
unacceptable. More detailed definition of plagiarism can be found at the Korea

with in accordance to the Korea University Policy for Academic Conduct. Such
instances will be reported to the Head of School and a record will be kept of the
case and penalty given, for future reference.
