Course Description

COURSE CONTENT

The course comprises a series of lectures (L), laboratory exercises (LE) and seminars (S).

L: Fundamental terms and concepts of chemistry; composition of matter; states of matter; structure of the atom; chemical bonding; influence of structure on physico-chemical properties of matter; basics of chemical kinetics; fundamental concepts of chemical equilibrium; acids and bases; chemical equilibria in aqueous solutions of acids and bases; solubility equilibria; redox equlibria; chemical equilibrium in complex (mixed) systems.

S: Physical quantities and units in chemistry; expressing and calculating the composition of substances and solutions; balancing chemical equations; stoichiometry; chemical equilibria in aqueous solutions of acids and bases; buffer solutions; solubility equilibria.

LE: Basic laboratory equipment and safety rules in the chemical laboratory; laboratory techniques for measuring mass and volume; preparation of the solution of exact composition; types of chemical reactions; ideal gas laws; preparation and isolation of simple inorganic compounds; chemical kinetics; influence of external factors on chemical equilibrium; chemical equilibria in aqueous solutions of Brensted acids and bases; solubility equilibria; chemical equilibria in redox systems.
