Department of Nuclear Chemistry
Synopsis:

The first part of this course deals with basic concepts of chemistry. The properties of atoms and connections between atomic electron shell structure and chemical reactivity of elements are explained. The nature of chemical binding in the frame of wave-mechanical concept is given in following part. The most important types of chemical reactions are discussed at the end of the course.

Requirements:

Knowledge of chemistry on the level of graduate from a secondary grammar school.

Syllabus of lectures:

1.Structure of atoms and molecules.

2.Electron structure of atoms, chemical bond.

3.Molecular orbitals in diatomic and polyatomic molecules.

4.Molecules - shape and symmetry.

5.Crystals.

6.Bond in ionic compounds.

7.Geometry and crystal lattice.

8.Basic structural types of crystals.

9.Solutions and reactions.

10.Solubility.

11.Basic types of chemical reactions - precipitation.

12.Acid-base reactions.

13.Oxidation - reduction reactions, radical reactions.

Syllabus of tutorials:

1. structure of the atom (electron configuration, anomalies)

2. nomenclature (halogenides, pseudohalogenides, polythionates, organic derivatives of phosphorus-based acids, complex compounds)

3. shapes of molecules (hybridisation, VSEPR, molecular orbitals)

4. point groups and symmetry elements (search for the elements and symmetry operations, plane, axis and centre of symmetry, notation of space groups)

5. crystallography (unit cell, centering of the cell)

6. chemical calculations (molality, concentration, mass fraction, calculation of the composition of alloys)

Study Objective:

The course of inorganic chemistry provides the students with the knowledge of the basic concepts.

The students will acquire competence to apprehend the advanced specialised chemistry courses.
