Learning outcomes
The lectures on inorganic chemistry shall provide the students with understanding of the modern concept of inorganic (the so-called synthetic) chemistry based on General Chemistry (which is based on the quantum concept of atoms) and which follows Organic Chemistry. Within the course, the lectures should cover fundamental concepts and definitions of the periodic system of elements, models and concepts used in the theory of chemical bond, including the theory of acids and alkalis by Lewis. In the systematic part of the lectures on elements, the following elements are to be covered gradually: hydrogen, oxygen, halogens and chalkogens. The lectures on the chemistry of elements should be given to respect the following order of elements: nitrogen, carbon, silicon, boron. The position of the respective element in the periodic system of elements is accentuated as well as its electron configuration, binding potential and biological importance. Metals shall be lectured on in a summary unit, with respect to their chemical and physical properties, position in compounds and oxidation states. The lectures shall provide for explanation of the nature of toxic effect of some heavy metals and other elements. The structure of the lectures enables the student to understand general patterns and principles and to apply them to the solution of relating issues using the acquired factual knowledge
Student is ready manage bases inorganic chemistry.
