The course is focused on the extension of knowledge and skills acquired in the master subject Theoretical principles of inorganic chemistry and/ or similar courses. The objective is to get acquainted with advanced methods of studying inorganic substances such as electronic structure calculations of molecules, complexes and solids, their energies, vibration spectra, chemical and phase equilibria. Programs like Gaussian, Orca, Wien2k, Medea - VASP and FactSage will be used for solution of practical problems and projects.

Last update: Hladíková Jana (19.11.2018)

Students will be able to:

Actively apply ligand field theory and molecular orbital theory in the study of electronic properties of inorganic substances

Apply group theory to derive the normal vibrational modes of molecules and to calculate their frequencies

Derive thermodynamic functions from ground and excited states

Propose thermodynamic models of solution phases

Calculate phase and chemical equilibria and construct phase diagrams of inorganic systems
