What to expect from the training course

This workshop will teach electrolyte chemistry concepts and electrolyte simulation techniques. Participants will leave with a qualitative image of how ions and molecules behave in water and a better understanding of properties like alkalinity and pH.


The course is designed for beginers and prospective OLI clients

The class is designed for participants with little or no knowledge of OLI simulation techniques. Intermediate level clients wanting to refresh their skills may also join this class; there are extra problems in each section that allow for independent inquiry.

How long is the course 2 days (One 3-hour web session each day)
Please have a computer with two monitors and ensure that you can log into WebEx.
