Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Student will get orientation in the problem of environmental chemistry with regard to pollution and pollutants, their behaviour, environmental fate and impact on environment compartment quality.

Teaching methods

Individual consultations


The subject deals with problems of effects of chemical compounds and chemical processes on environmental compartments; soil, water and air. At first, fundamentals of chemistry of lithosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere and biogeochemical cycles of chosen elements will be dealt with. In the second part, attention will be paid to issues of acid-base, ion-exchange and oxidation-reduction reactions of pollutants with regard to soil and water acidification, and further, chemical and photochemical reactions in the atmosphere, mobility and transformation of harmful substances and their impacts on individual environmental compartments.
