3. Course contents *

This course is considered a basic course in (inorganic) chemistry. This basic course starts from a classification of matter, in order to learn to understand through atomic theory the quantum mechanical nature of electrons and atomic structures. The periodic properties of atoms are linked to their electron structure, as well as to their reactivity. The ionic and molecular bonds, as well as intermolecular interactions, are also explained by electron structures. Furthermore, through an introduction to chemical thermodynamics, the course encompases precipitation reactions, acid-base reactions and redox reactions.
