Learning outcomes This Course aims to give an introduction to the study of general chemistry. It is intended that the student perceives, develop and apply fundamental knowledge in general chemistry, namely:
Use the Periodic Table as a tool in understanding the chemistry of the elements.
Understanding the theories of chemical bonding and determine the geometry of the molecules. Relate the physical properties of substances with intermolecular forces.
Solve problems with gas, with emphasis on the use of the ideal gas law and Dalton's law.
Classify solids according to the chemical bond and its crystal structure.
Use the crystal field theory to predict the structure and properties of transition metal complexes.
Understand the laws of thermodynamics and its application in chemistry
Knowing and applying the fundamental concepts of chemical kinetics.
Syllabus 1 - Periodic Table. Properties of the elements
2 - Chemical Bonding. Theories of chemical bonding: TLV, TRPECV, TOM. Physical properties of substances and intermolecular forces
3 - Properties of gases. Laws and equations of ideal gases. Partial pressures and Dalton laws. Kinetic molecular theory. Deviations from ideal behavior
4 - Solid State Chemistry: Classification of solids according to chemical bonding, structure and properties
5 - Coordination Chemistry: Crystal Field Theory, structure and properties of complexes
6 - Thermochemistry: Energy. First law of thermodynamics. Enthalpy of reaction. Calorimetry. Hess's law. Born-Haber cycle. Spontaneous processes. Entropy. Second law of thermodynamics. Gibbs energy and equilibrium constant of a reaction
7 - Chemical kinetics: Rate and order of reaction. Arrhenius Law
Practical: Preparation of solutions / calibration curve, determination of heat of reaction, determination of the equation of reaction rate
