The course provides fundamental knowledge in general chemistry and practical skills performing chemical analysis. The course includes the topics: the properties of solutions, ionization (dissociation), neutralization and hydrolysis reactions, weak and strong electrolytes, acid and base; buffer solutions; oxidation and reduction reactions, electrochemical element; composition of the matter, covalent, ionic, hydrogen bonds; coordination bond and complex compounds; I thermodynamics law; reaction rate; reversible and irreversible reactions.

Prerequisites for entering the course

Chemistry knowledge according secondary school program

Course aim

To provide knowledge in General chemistry theory and practice.
