MNTC 303 Engineering Chemistry

MNTC 303  Engineering Chemistry  Units: 3.00  

The focus of this course is to survey chemical processes and demonstrate its relationship to current practices in mining technology. Students will examine chemical reactions in terms of mass relationships, chemical equations, chemical equilibrium and acid/base reactions concerning aqueous solutions. The examination of the laws of thermodynamics and the behaviour of gases will be explored to provide the necessary background for calculations applied to ideal and non-ideal vapours and liquids. Principles of chemical kinetics and electrochemical reactions will also be studied. Students will have an opportunity to expand their knowledge of organic chemistry to include properties and reactions of functional groups, naming and recognizing key organic structures and apply this knowledge to hydrometallurgy. Special emphasis will be placed upon chemical extraction methods, instrumental analysis, data manipulation and interpretation of key analytes of interest to the mining industry. Available Online.
