Subject content Matter: elements, compounds, mixtures. Laws in chemistry. Solid, liquid and gaseous state. Quantum theory and electronic structure of atoms. Periodic table of elements. Chemical symbols, formulas and equations. Ionic, covalent and metal bond. Intramolecular interactions in liquids and solids. Physical properties versus chemical properties. Complex compounds. Chemical reactions. Chemical equilibrium. Solutions and colloids. Colligative properties of solutions. Electrolytes: acids, bases and salts. Electrochemistry. Thermochemistry. Elements of s, p, and d groups: properties, compounds and preparations.
Aim of course The course of ""General chemistry"" is based on modern concepts to introducing students in the atomic and molecular structure and types of bonding, as well as in the kinetic theory as it applies to the states of matter, solutions, rates of reaction and chemical equilibrium.
