Annotation -
The basic fields of general chemistry are addressed in the course: structure of atoms, periodicity of chemical elements properties, theory of chemical bonding, stereochemistry of molecules, principles of chemical equilibrium. These principles are applied in the description of reactivity and fundamental properties of inorganic substances. The descriptive part of inorganic chemistry is, unlike the conventional treatment (chemistry of elements), approached as a chemistry of inorganic phases. The main families of substances are discussed such as gaseous and liquid molecular compounds, ions in aqueous solutions and their salts, coordination complexes, metals and intermetallic compounds, solid oxides and inorganic polymers, carbides, nitrides and further solid compounds of metals.

Aim of the course -

Students will be able to:

Determine the electronic structure of atoms and ions, their location in the periodic table, apply the periodic trends to interprete the behavior of inorganic substances

Identify the inorganic substances in terms of structure and phase identity

Understand the inorganic nomenclature, construct the electron structures and estimate the geometry of molecules

Apply the fundamentals of chemical bonding theory, chemical aquilibrium and to assess the influence of conditions on the chemical equilibria

Propose the synthesis routes, estimate the reactivity and further properties of inorganic substances, deal with acid-base and redox reactions, balance chemical equations
