Developing a Detailed Outline Outline efficiently reduce and order your source material which forces you to: -Partition material -Develop a POV -Establishes the scope of your document -Sequence your topics -Develop a writing strategy. The same outline can be used to generate feedback, serve as writing aid, and provide the subject headings of your paper. Work out a general plane first, and then make the outline more specific.

In the informal outline, sometimes called a scratch outline, the writer brainstorms to develop a list of topics, which are then put into some order. The following informal outline might serve as the basis of a short theoretical report for a review of the current state of photoelectric conversion chemistry. Title: Thermodynamics and Kinetics of Semiconductor-Based Photoelectric Cells Introduction: Converting solar to chemical energy Absorption of light: Optimizing efficiency Energetics for photoredox processes Durability of semiconductor electrodes Kinetics for fuel-forming redox reactions Examples of semiconductor-based photochemical processes --Photoelectrolysis of H 2 O (SrTiO 3 -based cell) --Photooxidation of Cl - (MY2) --Photoreduction of water to H 2 --Reduction of CO 3 H - to formate Formal Outline In the formal outline, you develop a numbering system to accompany the topics.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
