Course aims
To present the chemistry of the elements in the main groups. Practical skills and experience of laboratory work will be obtained.
Brief description of the course
Dealing with the elements in conformity with the IUPAC system (groups 1-18) on the basis of filling electron subshells (s-, p-, d- and f-elements). Treatment of the elements within the bounds of the Periodic System (main groups): characterisation of groups, the individual elements, their chemical properties and compounds, technological aspects and utilisation, biological function, etc. General requirements, equipment and methods for laboratory work. Practical tasks: the determination of atomic and molar masses, the velocity and equilibrium of chemical reactions, solution chemistry and electrochemistry.
Learning outcomes in the course
Upon completing the course the student:
- Is able to characterize the main group elements generally on the group level;
- Can differentiate the elements within the range of group on the basis of their chemical specificity;
- Is able to use the knowledge obtained in scientific research;
- has knowledge and skills for lab work.
