The first part of course is devoted to systematical chemistry of elements. The properties of representative elements, transition elements and chemistry of coordination compounds are characterised. Selected chapters in the second part of course deal with catalysis, organometallic compounds and chemistry of solid state. The role of metal ions in biological environment is discussed at the end of course.


Knowledge of chemistry on the level of a graduate from a secondary grammar school. Completed course Inorganic Chemistry I.
