General objectives
Chemistry and Materials science course provides an introduction to the chemistry of biological, inorganic and organic molecules. The objective is to account for basic principles of atomic and molecular structure, states of matter such as gases laws, liquid solutions and crystalline structures, chemical equilibrium, chemical kinetics and catalysis.
Content
Introduction: Matter properties. Units of measurement. Atoms, Molecules and Ions. Atomic mass. Nomenclature of chemical compounds. Chemical equations. Stoichiometry. The mole. Limit reactant.
Electronic structure of atoms and periodic properies: Electronic structure of atoms. Orbitals representation. Electron spin and the Pauli Exclusion Principle. The Aufbau Principle: building up the Periodic Table. Periodic properties: atomic radii, ionization potentials, electron afinity.
Chemical bonding: Interatomic bonding: ionic and covalent bonds. Polarity and electronegativity. Lewis structures. Metallic bond. Bonding energy. Intermolecular forces: Hydrogen bonding, dipole-dipole, ion-dipole, London.
Gases and liquids: Ideal gases. Law of gas. Dalton's law of partial pressures. Kinetic molecular theory. Real gases. Aqueous solutions: polar and non-polar solutions. Precipitation. Solubility. Concentration of solutions: molarity. Phase changes. Vapour pressure. Phase diagrams. Ideal solutions. Colligative properties.
Solids: Crystalline and amorphous solids. Crystal lattice. Unit cell. Crystal systems. Phase diagrams.
Chemical kinetics: Reaction rates: factors that affect the reaction rate. Concentration and rate. Reaction orders. Temperature and rate. Activation Energy. The Arrhenius equation. Catalysis.
Chemical equilibrium: Chemical equilibrium. Equilibrium constant. The law of mass action. Stresses equilibrium: Le Chatelier's principle. Equilibrium in aqueous solutions. Acid-base equilibrium. pH scale.
