AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course is intended to provide a basic chemical culture, required to describe the structure and chemistry of the materials and to deal with the interpretation of the natural, environmental and technological processes.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course is intended to provide a basic chemical culture, required to understand and address basic problems related to the description and properties of materials and their technological applications in relation to the atomic structure, chemical bonds, spontaneity and rate of chemical reactions, equilibria and processes.

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

Inorganic nomenclature (oxides, anhydrides, hydroxides, acids, salts); stoichiometry of the chemical reactions (double replacement and redox reactions), the mole concept, concentration of the solutions.

Atomic structure: atomic models, quantum numbers, orbitals, Heisenberg uncertainty principle, Pauli principle, electron configurations of atoms. Periodic table and properties. Essential on nuclear energy and radioactivity. Chemical bonds: covalent, ionic, metallic bonds, hydrogen bond, intermolecular forces.

Gases: the gas laws (Boyle’s, Charles’s, Gay-Lussac’s and Avogadro’s laws), ideal and real gas law, volume of gases in the chemical reactions.

Solids: atomic, ionic, metallic molecular crystals. Band structure. Magnetic, electrical, mechanical propeties. Alloys.  An introduction to organic chemistry: hybridization of atomic orbitals in Carbon atom, common functional groups. Synthetic polymers: polymerization processes, thermoplastic/thermosetting polymers, copolymers. Structure and properties of polymers. Liquid crystals.

Fundamentals of Thermodynamics: 1° and 2° principle of Thermodynamics, Enthalpy, Entropy, Gibbs Free Energy and spontaneity. Chemical equilibria: the equilibrium constant, relation between Gibbs Free Energy and equilibrium in homogeneous systems. Physical equilibria: phase diagrams. Chemical kinetic: reaction rate, Arrhenius’s law. Acids and Bases. Aqueous equilibria: pH calculation (strong and weak acids and bases). Electrochemistry: galvanic cells, electrolytic cells, essential on corrosion.
