Annotation -
The course focuses on the fundamental aspects of chemistry as natural and technical science. Chemical principles, logical linkages and relationships are emphasized. The reading is based on fundamental chapters of physical chemistry and the impact of physico-chemical rules in inorganic, organic, analytical chemistry as well as biochemistry is stressed.
