After the course the student should be able to:
- Account for electronic structure in atoms and the theoretical background to the periodic table, as well as different types of chemical bonds.
- Account for and perform simple numerical calculations related to intermolecular forces involved in solutions, mixtures and in the properties of liquids
- Account for the meaning of commonly encountered values and concepts in reaction kinetics and carry out calculations in basic kinetics.
- Account for basic concepts as well as carry out calculations in stoichiometry, equilibria and basic thermodynamics.
- Describe different types of transport processes in solution as well as carry out simple calculations of corresponding properties
- 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
Basic descriptive organic and inorganic chemistry, chemical bonding, intermolecular and intramolecular forces and their effects on the physical properties of substances, stoichiometry, basic kinetics, thermodynamics and electrochemistry, equilibria including buffer systems, 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 9 credits. 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.
The course can not be included in higher education qualification together with 1KB001 and 1KB007.
