Course aims
The course deals with the chemistry of minor group elements. The course offers practical skills and experience of laboratory work.
Brief description of the course
Metals of groups 3-10 (d-elements): detailed treatment and generalisations. Non-metals in the Periodic system, the structure and properties of elements and their compounds. Metals in the Periodic system. Technology, properties and uses of metals. Polymorphism, electrochemical series and metal alloys. Binary compounds of metals: oxides, hydrides, etc. The most relevant complex compounds. Practical works: alkali metals and the copper group. Magnesium, alkaline-earth metals. Elements of groups 4-16: a choice of experiments. A systematic chemical analysis of cations and anions.
Learning outcomes in the course
Upon completing the course the student:
- is able to characterize the minor group elements 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.
