The course is based on the fundamental principles of general and inorganic chemistry, physical chemistry and solid state chemistry and physics. It opens a way to a deeper understanding the role of energy in chemical processes. The students will have an opportunity to check on the specific examples and problems their ability to assess the reactivity, stability and possibility of formation of inorganic substances.
Aim of the course -

Students will be able to:

Clarify the origin as well meaning of energy and entropic contributions to the properties of inorganic substances.

Assess the impact of non-standard conditions on the energy pronouncement of substances.

To estimate the possibility of inorganic compounds inherency.

Justify the behavior of cations and anions in polar solvents.

Explain the periodic trends in the thermodynamic properties of inorganic compounds.
