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.

Students will be able to:

  • determine the electron structure of atoms and ions, their location in the periodic table, apply the periodic trends to explicate the behavior of inorganic substances
  • identify inorganic substances in terms of structure and phase identity
  • understand the inorganic nomenclature, construct 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 synthesis routes, estimate the reactivity and other properties of inorganic substances, deal with acid-base and redox reactions, balance chemical equations

To finish the course successfully, students need to get an assessment and to pass both written and oral part of the final examination.


During the semester, two preliminary tests (T1, T2) are written, each for a maximum of 100 marks. These tests are obligatory, written on a fixed date, and cannot be written repeatedly. To be assessed, a student needs to obtain at least 80 marks in total from both tests (i.e. (T1 + T2) more than 79).

Collective test (optional)

If 50 < (T1 + T2) < 79, the student is entitled to write a collective test. The collective test consists of two parts: part A (102 marks) and part B (98 marks), i.e. 200 marks in total. To be assessed, a student must obtain at least 60 marks in part A and at least 80 marks from the entire collective test. The collective test can only be taken once, on a set date in the first 2 weeks of the exam period.


After being assessed, students can enroll for the final examination.

Students must write a test before proceeding to the oral part of the examination. The written examination has two parts:

Part A: basic general and inorganic chemistry (50 marks);

this part is in the form of a check test;

multiple answers are available and from one up to all of the answers may be correct;

evaluation: checked correctly +1 mark; unchecked 0 mark; checked incorrectly -1 mark (subtraction only down to zero in each problem).

Part B: advanced general and inorganic chemistry (50 marks);

this part is in the same manner as the preliminary tests.

The oral part of the examination only takes place if the student obtained at least 35 marks in the part A and at least 50 marks in total in the parts A and B of the written examination. If the student fails the examination, he/she is entitled to repeat it twice (i.e. each student is entitled one regular examination and two resits).
