Understanding the fundamental laws derived for chemical reactions. The ability to write the equation of a simple chemical reaction and to predict its direction. The ability to present the basic properties of the main group elements and the structure/geometry of simple chemical compounds. Acquiring basic knowledge of chemical bonds, acids and bases, red-ox reactions and the properties of gases, liquids and solids.
Aging of matter. Atom and its structure. Is it possible to see an atom and a molecule? Electronic configurations of atoms and ions. Isotopes, mass spectrometry. Periodic table of elements. What stands behind the spontaneity of chemical reactions? Chemical bond types: covalent, ionic, metallic, Van der Waals, hydrogen, guest-host and complex. Thermodynamic functions describing chemical reactions. Chemical-equilibrium state and reaction-equilibrium constant. Chemical reaction rate. Catalysts and biocatalysts. Thermodynamic and kinetic stability of chemical compounds. Chemical purity. Theories that describe the acid-base equilibria. The concept of pH. Ionic product of water. Buffer systems. Super acids. Solubility product and solubility. Redox equilibria. Nernst equation. Simple examples of galvanic cells and useful electrode processes. Gas laws. Properties of liquids. Metallurgy. Overview of the basic properties of the most important elements and their popular compounds.
