Electrochemistry: Description and function of galvanic cells, concentrations cells, Nernst's equation from Gibbs, ampere yield, inert electrodes, electrolysis, combination of electrochemical reactions with other reaction, thermodynamic data and K from E. Appl. electrochem: Corrosion, galvanic corrosion, calculation of passivity, effects of complexes, Pourbaix diagram. Organic chemistry: Hydrocarbons (alifation, olefinic, aromatic), halides, O- and N- compounds, properties of main polymers, addition-. and condensation polymers, termopolymers and termosets, crosslinking. Inorganic chemistry: Basic descriptive inorganic chemistry, periodic table vs. properties, electrochemistry, covalent, ionic and metallic bonds, molecules vs. network structures, solubility, polar and nonpolar solvents.

Learning outcome

The course aims at giving the students a basis for later chemistry related courses and for mastering chemistry related issues in technology.

Learning methods and activities

Lectures and written excersises. 50% of exercises must be passed. Two written tests must also be passed for access to final examination.

Compulsory assignments

  • 2 written tests
  • Exercises

Further on evaluation

If there is a resit examination, the examination form may be changed from written to oral.

Resit examination will be hold in august

Specific conditions

Compulsory activities from previous semester may be approved by the department.

Course materials

A list of recommended books will be given. Aylward & Findlay: "SI chemical data, 7th edition" is required.
