Learning Objectives

The student will acquire the fundamental knowledge on Chemistry and will understand its importance as a central, useful, and creative branch of science. He also will learn how to solve practical and numerical problems.

Program

- Atomic weight, molecular weight, mole, percentage composition, empirical formula, molecular formula

- Nuclear Chemistry and radioactivity, radioisotopes, 14C-dating of evidence

- Atomic structure: orbitals, electronic configuration

- Periodic table of the elements, periodic properties, octet rule

- Chemical bond: classification (intramolecular, intermolecular)

- Covalent bond, molecular geometry: VSEPR model, polarity of a molecule

- Valence bond theory, elements of hybridation model

- Ionic bond and ionic compounds

- Metallic bond

- Inorganic compounds: oxides, hydroxides, acids, hydrogen compounds, salts

- Chemical reactions: balancing, yield, stoichiometry

- Redox reactions

- Intermolecular interactions: Van der Waals forces, hydrogen bond

- Physical states: solid, liquid, gas. Changes of state

- Ideal and real gases, gas laws, ideal gas equation

- Solutions: solute-solvent interactions, measure of concentration

- Strong electrolytes, speciation, colligative properties

- Chemical equilibrium. Equilibrium constant, Le Chatelier principles

- Solubility equilibrium: saturated solutions, solubility and solubility product

- Acids and bases in aqueous solution: pH measurement of solutions containing strong or weak acids or bases

- Saline hydrolysis

- Buffer solutions and pH measurement

- Outline of coordination compounds

- Elements of Chemical thermodynamics (entalpy, entropy, free energy) and kinetics (activation energy and catalysts)

Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

D1 - Knowledge and understanding ability. Students will be able to describe the microscopic and macroscopic properties of the matter. In particular they will able to master the concepts of mole, concentration, pH, solubility and chemical equilibrium. The achievement of these abilities will be tested through an oral examination.

D2 - Application of knowledge and understanding. Students will be able to utilize the correct chemistry language, and to apply the stoichiometric calculation in order to determine the equilibrium state of a chemical system (yield of a reaction, pH of a solution, solubility of an insoluble electrolyte). The achievement of these abilities will be tested through a written examination.

D3 - Judgement autonomy. Students will be able to extimate the role played by the substances composing a chemical system in determining its physical-chemical properties. These knovledges will be essential in order to interpret the behavior of more complex systems tackled in the next teaching. The achievement of these abilities will be tested through the written examination and oral questions aimed at estimate them.

D4 - Communication ability. Students will be able to clearly describe the physical-chemical phenomena learned in the course with appropriate language and examples.

D5 - Learnning ability. Students will be able to grow autonomously and critically their scientific knowledges by using the teaching material provided by the teacher and any other book or scientific article provided by themselves. These abilities will be stimulated by the teacher proposing and resolving numeric problems.

Teaching Material

The teaching material prepared by the lecturer in addition to recommended textbooks (such as for instance slides, lecture notes, exercises, bibliography) and communications from the lecturer specific to the course can be found inside the Moodle platform › blended.uniurb.it

Supporting Activities

The course involves optional exercise classes


Didactics, Attendance, Course Books and Assessment

Didactics

The course will consist of both lectures on the basic concepts of Chemistry and problem solving activities that help the student identify structure and shape of common chemical species and tackle stoichiometric problems when applied to chemical reactions.

The teaching material prepared by the lecturer in addition to recommended textbooks (such as for instance slides, lecture notes, exercises, bibliography) and communications from the lecturer specific to the course can be found inside the Moodle platform › blended.uniurb.it

Attendance

Optional

Course books

Vieri Fusi, Luca Giorgi, Vito Lippolis, Nelsi Zaccheroni. Chimica: principi generali con esercizi. Idelson Gnocchi editore. ISBN: 9788879476539

Assessment

The final exam is aimed at verifying the acquired knowledge and skills. It consists of an oral exam, including exercises related to course's topics (e.g. redox reactions balancing, stoichiometry, measure of concentration) and theory questions.
