Welcome to Forethought India One-on-One Courses. Our program is designed to provide students with the skills and knowledge necessary to excel in their chosen profession. Our instructor for this course is Researcher Dr. Thomas McCoy at University of Cambridge


"Race of the Molecules: Chemical Kinetics Unraveled" is an in-depth and dynamic course that offers a comprehensive exploration of the fascinating world of chemical kinetics. From understanding the fundamental principles governing reaction rates to delving into advanced topics, this course equips students with a holistic understanding of the dynamics of molecules in various environments. Participants will learn to calculate rate constants, derive rate laws, and analyze the influence of concentration, temperature, catalysts, and activation energy on reaction rates. With a focus on practical applications, problem-solving, and real-world contexts, this course prepares students for careers in research, industry, or further studies in chemistry, instilling a deep appreciation for the crucial role of kinetics in the realm of chemistry.


At the end of the program, students will receive a certificate & performance letter by the eductor indicating that they have completed the program and acquired the necessary skills and knowledge to excel in their chosen profession.

Chemical Kinetics Unraveled by Dr. Thomas McCoy at Cambridge

  • Dr. Thomas McCoy is a Research Fellow at the University of Cambridge. He completed his undergraduate and postgraduate degrees under the supervision of Rico Tabor at Monash University, Australia, looking at the colloidal properties of 2D carbon nanomaterials. Currently, his research focuses on the understanding and optimisation of engine oil formulations and anti-fouling coatings using colloidal building blocks to assist in reducing energy consumption and carbon dioxide emissions from transport industries. This work takes place in the Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology at Cambridge, in the lab of Alex Routh. Tom's other research interests includes surfactants and self-assembly and using scattering techniques to elucidate structure-function relationships in colloidal and soft matter systems.
