Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The aim of the course is to extend theoretical knowledge in the general and inorganic chemistry. Students will complete their knowledge of chemistry to understand the wider context in the area of the Process Engineering in the field of raw materials.

Teaching methods

Individual consultations


Subject Selected chapters of general and inorganic chemistry provides theoretical basis of chemical and physical processes for further study in the field of Process Engineering in the field of raw materials. The course is focused on structures of atoms and of multiatomic molecules and theory of molecular orbitals, coordination compounds, theory of acids and bases, bonding in solids, solid state chemistry, chemical equilibrium and electrochemistry.
