Key words
Physico-chemistry, viscosity, electrolytes, crytals, electric and magnetic properties, surface tension

The knowledge and skills appropriated during the second year of the education are enlarged with specific physico-chemical applications. The student learns to analyse chemical problems in Dutch and English and give an interpretation to processes using physico-chemical laws.

*electric and magnetic properties of molecules : dipoolmoments, permittivity, intermolecular forces,magnetisation.
*the liquid state : forces in liquids, rheological properties, kinetical phenomenas.
*processes at interfaces : surface tension, formation of micels, surfactantia and applications.
*the solid state : Miller indices, X-ray diffraction, cristal classification, neutron and electron diffraction, determination of structures, conductivity.

Principles of physico-chemistry, course in the second year Professional Bachelor in Chemistry .

Final Objectives
The student is able to collect and use information (in Duth or foreign language) in order to discuss problems with insight in the physico-chemical theory. They can solve problems and ajust processes in a safe and accurate way in all branches of chemistry.
