IIT Madras has structured the Chemistry - II certification course offered by Swayam. The institute’s Prof K Mangala Sunder teaches this elective program which consists of eight assignments. The curriculum is built at postgraduate and undergraduate study levels, which students can comfortably finish in eight weeks.
The Chemistry - II certification syllabus introduces molecular spectroscopy, a vital part of physical chemistry. Understanding this branch is essential for all biologists, material scientists, and chemists. The course also teaches about the experiments used to verify various quantum mechanics concepts. Researchers will learn detailed information about molecules, including their bond angles, length, strength, accompanied by their magnetic and optical properties.
The Chemistry - II training is well-suited for B.Sc. or undergraduate students and postgraduate students in their first year. After acquiring profound knowledge about molecular spectroscopy, they can also opt for the final exam and receive a verified certificate with IIT Madras and NPTEL’s logos.

Who it is for
If you are an undergraduate or B.Sc. student, the Chemistry - II certification course is appropriate for you. Similarly, first-year postgraduate students are also welcome to register for the curriculum.
The Chemistry - II training requires you to have experience in high school-level mathematics, calculus, chemistry, and elementary linear algebra. Additionally, understanding the atomic structure and elementary thermodynamics will be useful.
Besides, you have to submit eight internal assessments, and the top six will be selected. An average of 25% or more for the assignments and at least 75% for the exam will be considered to calculate the student’s final marks.
A score of 10 out of 25 for the internal assignments and 30 out of 75 for the external exam is mandatory to obtain the Chemistry - II certificate.
What you will learn
The Chemistry - II certification syllabus, will help you learn the following:
- Quantum mechanics and molecular spectroscopy
- Diatomic and polyatomic molecules and their vibrational absorption spectroscopy
- Polyatomic and diatomic molecules and their vibrational Raman spectra
- Polyatomic and diatomic microwave spectroscopy
- Interaction of molecules
- Vibration-electronic and rotation-vibration coupling
