The basic concepts introduced in the courses of General and Inorganic Chemistry are summarized, generalized and extended using the knowledge and skills acquired in further courses following GIC=I and GIC-II: The course is devided in two units covering: (1) electronic structure of species forming the inorganic systems, (2) application of chemical thermodynamics in description of reactivity of inorganic substances. At the end the principal trends and unique properties of f-elements are discussed (this topic is not addressed in the basic courses of GIC)
Aim of the course -
Last update: Pátková Vlasta (10.01.2018)

Students will be able to:

Identify the ground and excited states of atoms and molecules and to interprete spectroscopic data

Construct the molecular orbitals diagrams of polyatomic molecules and complexes

Perform less complicated calculations of phase and chemical equilibria in inorganic systems

Interprete, complete and construct various types of phase diagrams

Propose the synthesis routes, assess the reactivity and properties of coordination complexes, elemental f-elements ans their compounds
