COURSE NAME INDUSTRIAL ORGANIC CHEMISTRY
COURSE CODE: SCT3063
NAME(S) OF ACADEMIC STAFF: ASSOC PROF DR SALINA MAT RADZI
RATIONALE FOR THE INCLUSION OF THE COURSE/MODULE IN THE PROGRAMME: Industrial chemistry deals with commercial production of chemicals and related products from natural raw materials and their derivatives. It enables humanity to experience the benefits of chemistry when we apply it in the exploitation of materials and energy. The goal of studying industrial chemistry at university is to try and bridge the gap between classical chemistry and chemistry is applied in industry. This subject focuses on the organic industrial chemistry is an important branch of industry and its structure usually centres on petroleum and hydrocarbon derived chemicals. It also addresses the needs of students to broaden their knowledge of the organic process industry as a whole.

SYNOPSIS:

 

This course focuses primarily on the chemical processing of raw materials in several important organic chemical industries. The course starts with an overview of the chemical process industry and raw materials. Next the course extents to the edible oils; fats and waxes; soap and detergent; sugar; paints; pigments and coating industry. The course will also discuss on the fermentation industry, dye, pharmaceutical and agrochemicals. Then, students will be introduced to the chemical explosive and propellants industry. Integration of aqli and naqli based on quranic verses will also be discussed in industrial chemistry.
