Explanation of codes
The code indicates the education cycle and in-depth level of the course in relation to other courses within the same main field of study according to the requirements for general degrees:
G1N: has only upper-secondary level entry requirements
G1F: has less than 60 credits in first-cycle course/s as entry requirements
G1E: contains specially designed degree project for Higher Education Diploma
G2F: has at least 60 credits in first-cycle course/s as entry requirements
G2E: has at least 60 credits in first-cycle course/s as entry requirements, contains degree project for Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Science
GXX: in-depth level of the course cannot be classified.
A1N: has only first-cycle course/s as entry requirements
A1F: has second-cycle course/s as entry requirements
A1E: contains degree project for Master of Arts/Master of Science (60 credits)
A2E: contains degree project for Master of Arts/Master of Science (120 credits)
AXX: in-depth level of the course cannot be classified.

On completion of the course, the student should be able to:
Account for electronic structure in atoms and the theoretical background to the periodic table, and relate these to the properties of elements
Account for the meaning of commonly encountered values and concepts in stoichiometry, equilibria, basic thermodynamics and basic reaction kinetics, as well as and carry out calculations within these fields
Explain the different types of chemical bonds and intermolecular forces and relate these to the physical properties of matter, carry out simple calculations regarding intermolecular forces relevant to different types of transport processes in solution
Carry out relatively basic laboratory work in a correct and safe manner, carry out simple risk and safety analyses, as well as document laboratory work in a laboratory journal in a scientifically correct manner.
Describe the implications of the course content for people and the environment
, Electronic structure of the atom, basic quantum mechanical concepts, periodic table, stoichiometry, basic kinetics, thermodynamics and electrochemistry, equilibria including buffer systems, chemical bonding, intermolecular and intramolecular forces and their effects on the physical properties of substances, surface tension, surfactants, conductivity, diffusion, viscosity and sedimentation. Technological applications related to the content of the course ; laboratory technique, basic risk assessment.
Lectures, exercises, laboratory sessions, seminars and project
Written examinations are organised during and at the end of the course and correspond to 5 and 4 credits respectively. The laboratory sessions correspond to 5 credits and the project corresponds to 1 credit. The final grade is a weighted average of the results of the different parts of the course.
If there are special reasons for doing so, an examiner may make an exception from the method of assessment indicated and allow a student to be assessed by another method. An example of special reasons might be a certificate regarding special pedagogical support from the disability coordinator of the university.
The course can not be included in higher education qualification together with 1KB001 Chemical Principles II and 1KB007 Basic Chemistry / 1KB000 Chemical Principles I.
