The objective of this subject is that the student advances in their training in Physical Chemistry. In this subject, we intend to deepen the application of the laws of Thermodynamics to specific chemical systems, using the concept of chemical potential in homogeneous and heterogeneous systems of one or more components. On the other hand, we also want to introduce the complementarity of the macroscopic and microscopic visions of matter to calculate and interpret their thermodynamic properties using the bases of Statistical Thermodynamics. Finally, we will do an introduction to Chemical Kinetics, emphasizing the study of reaction mechanisms using the microscopic interpretation of reaction rates given by the Transition State Theory.

Guided activities:
Theoretical classes, problem classes, laboratory practices
Autonomous activities:
Study, problem solving, readings and obtaining information, preparation of laboratory practices, bibliographic search.
By order of the ViceRector for Quality and Academic Accreditation, the teaching guides will indicate that the teacher must allocate approximately 15 minutes of some class to allow their students to answer the evaluation surveys of the teaching and evaluation of the subject or module.
Annotation: Within the schedule set by the centre or degree programme, 15 minutes of one class will be reserved for students to evaluate their lecturers and their courses or modules through questionnaires.

Continuous Evaluation
Written exams: Two partial exams will be carried out during the course, on the dates set by the coordination. Each of these exams will weight 35% on the final grade. The minimum mark required at each partial assessment to average with the rest of evaluating activities is 4,0. If these minimum requirements are not satisfied at the end of the term, there will be a recovery exam on the whole contents of the course. The note obtained in the recovery exam will replace the grade got in the first attempt. The students must have been previously evaluated in a set of activities the weight of which equals a minimum of twothirds of the total grade of the subject. The students will obtain the qualification of "Not Evaluable" if the number of their evaluation activities is less than 67% of the programmed ones for the subject.
Laboratory practices: The laboratory practices will be evaluated based on the results obtained in each practice and from a quizz that will have to be answered at the end of the period of practices. The average mark obtained from the practices in the laboratory will be equivalent to 15% of the final mark of the subject.
Individual Work: During the course, several avaluable exercises to be resolved in the classroom or outside the classroom will be proposed. The marks obtained in these exercises will have a weight of 15% on the final mark of the subject.
The requirements to pass the subject are:
1) The mark of each partial exam must be equal to or greater than 4,0. The minimum mark in the recovery exam must be 4,0.
2) The average mark of the subject must be equal to or greater than 5,0.
3) Attendance to the sessions of laboratory practices is obligatory. The mark of the laboratory practices must be equal or greater than 5,0.
Single Evaluation
The students who have taken advantage of the single assessment modality will have to take a final test that will consist of an examination of the entire theoretical syllabus and problems of the subject.
This test will take place on the day that the continuous assessment students take the second partial exam.
The student's grade will be:
Subject grade = (Final test grade * 80 + Practice grade * 20)/100
If the final mark does not reach 5, the student has another opportunity to pass the subject through the recovery exam that will be held on the date set by the coordination of the degree. In this test it will be possible to recover 80% of the mark corresponding to the theory part. The practice part is not recoverable. The students will obtain the qualification of "Not Evaluable" if they have taken neither the exam of the final test nor the recovery exam.
