Introduction to Physical Chemistry
- Department of Material Engineering and Chemistry
The subject is dealing with selected topics of physical chemistry which have some relationship to processes taking place in materials. The introduction to classic thermodynamics is given with respect to systems with chemical reaction and to systems with phase equilibrium. Attention is given also to chemical kinetics. The electrochemical part of course is devoted to general concepts of electrochemistry, to theory of electrolytes, corrosion and electrochemical power sources.
