This course provides fundamental aspects of chemical thermodynamics for electronic materials and device processes. Firstly, students will be introduced to thermodynamic functions of enthalpy, entropy, and free energy from the chemical reactions point of view. Also, this course will deal with surface reactions for electronic material/device processes as a case study of the energetic analysis of chemical reactions.
Through the course, the students will be able to
1) understand chemical reaction equilibrium analysis using the thermodynamic functions
2) understand surface reactions for electronic material/device processes.

To enhance effective learning, students are encouraged to spend approximately 100 minutes preparing for class and another 100 minutes reviewing class content afterwards (including assignments) for each class.
They should do so by referring to textbooks and other course material.
Evaluation will be based on the term-end examination.
