Last update: TAJ101 (03.12.2013)
The course extends the knowledge and skills acquired in the course OACH I. It covers the symmetry of polyatomic molecu, theory of molecular orbitals,chemical bonding in coordination complexes, concept of Lewis acids and bases, principles of solid state chemistry, chemical bonding in solids, phase and chemical equilibrium, basic electrochemistry and selected methods and synthesis techniques in the field of advanced and applied inorganic chemistry.
Aim of the course -
Last update: TAJ101 (03.12.2013)

Students will be able to:

Identify the symmetry elements and operations and to propose and apply the molecular orbital diagrams for polyatomic molecules

Determine the groud state terms of atoms and ions of d-block elements and their energy splitting in ligand field

Assess the acid-base behavior of ions in aqueous solutions and propose the reaction schemes for Lewis acids and bases

Characterize crystalline solids in terms of symmetry, derive the structure prototypes based on closed packing schemes of atoms and ions, and perform simple crystal chemical calculations (theoretical density, charge balances in non-stoichiometric solids)

Solve the problems involving various types of equilibrium constants, potential phase diagrams, standard reduction potentials and Nernst equations.

Apply an extended knowledge of inorganic substances reactivity.
