Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to derive basic relationships in inorganic chemistry, to define, explain and apply important concepts such as MO-schemata, ligand field theory, binding relationships, the VSEPR-method, as well as to sketch geometric structures of inorganic compounds and materials, to determine and predict their properties in related compounds and to construct important synthesis pathways.

Subject of course

General properties, modifications, synthesis, use and chemistry of the non-metals and metals in elemental form. Structures (VSEPR model), bonding, synthesis and properties of hydrogen compounds, oxides, oxo acids and halides of the non-metals for simple, selected examples. Natural cycles of the elements; environmental aspects of ozone, CO2, NOx Chemistry of the transition metals in aqueous solution; introduction in the chemistry of metal complexes (formation and stability of metal complexes, introduction to ligand field theory, complex geometries and isomerism, ligand types). All subjects will be supported by demonstration experiments.

Teaching methods

The students will be supported with chemical and physical experiments, videos, stories and detailed handouts.

Examination modalities

A written examination on the lecture contents. The exam lasts 120 minutes and consists of 8 tasks. These tasks consist of 2-3 sub-questions per subject area and include examples, exercises/calculation tasks as well as definitions and descriptions of concepts.
For the examination a total of 100 points are awarded; 100-86 points correspond to a "very good", 85-72 points to a "good", 71-58 points to a "satisfactory", 57-45 points to a "sufficient" and less than 45 points to a "unsatisfactory", so that the examination would have to be repeated.
Permitted aids during the examination are: Writing tools.
