Skills to be acquired in this module
Students have basic knowledge of the structure of atoms and molecules. They know the periodic table of chemical elements, the properties of important elements and their most important compounds and reactions. They are familiar with equilibria in aqueous solutions. They will be able to use equilibrium settings to solve small analytical tasks and describe these equilibria using formulas. They will be familiar with acids and bases as well as reduction and oxidation reactions. Students are familiar with selected methods for quantifying chemical compounds using spectroscopy. Students know the most important organic molecules and classes of natural substances.
