COURSE CONTENT: Introduction to inorganic chemistry- orgin of the elements, their abundance; the names of the chemical elements and the periodic trends in the properties of the elements.Chemistry of hydrogen-H-bond-chlatrates, binary hydrides; electron-deficient hydrides (hydrides of boron, aluminium and gallium); silanes, germane and plumbane.Inonic compounds-properties, lattice energy, ionic radii; geometries of crystal lattices-close packed structures; mixed-metal oxides (spinels, perovskite, ilmenite); oxoanions; polynuclear oxoanions (borates, silicates and phosphates).The elements of Groups 1. and 2.- trends in stability of hydrides, oxides, halides and oxo salts; solutions in liquid ammonia, nature and reducing properties.Inorganic chains, rings, cages and clusters; Zintl phases (structures and properties); polyoxometalate anions of p-block elements-structures, properties and use.Boron chemistry-oxide and halides; borazine-boron-nitrogen compounds; Chemistry of Si- silanes, multiple bonds; comparasion with carbon chemistry, siloxanes: condensation Si-O-Si bond; silicates and their structures nitrogen -oxides and oxoacids; Oxygen, sulphur and phosphorus-comparasion; catenation; sulphur oxides and oxo acids; S-N and P-N compounds.
Chemistry of halogens: halides, interhalogen compounds and polyhalides; structure.Noble gases: ionisation energy and electron affinity; fluorides of Xe: synthesis and structure; Xe-N and Xe-C bonds; Seminars include solving of the chemical problems (numerical examples) and presentation actual literature findings.
1. Explain the differences in chemical and physical properties of the first and other elements of group.
2. Describe and explain synthetic methods for compounds of s- and p- block elements.
3. Describe and explain similarities and differences in structures and properties of hydrides, oxides, carbides, borides and halogenides.
4. Describe and explain bond types and intramolecular interactions in compounds.
5. Explain the influence of solvent (polar, nonpolar) on stability of some compounds.
6. Use of inorganic nomenclature.
7. Use stoichiometry to solve chemical problems.
