The course deals with selected chapters of physical chemistry on advanced level. Knowledge acquired in the basic course Physical Chemistry I is extended to real-behaving systems. Subjects covered involve state behavior of matter, thermodynamics of fluids, phase and chemical equilibria, properties of electrolyte-containing systems, chemical kinetics, and basic concepts of surface chemistry.
Aim of the course -
