Subject syllabus:

Chemical kinetics – classification of reactions, basic terms (reaction rate in homogeneous and heterogeneous systems, order of reaction, molecularity, rate constant, reaction mechanism). Integrated forms of the kinetic equation. The temperature dependence of the rate of a chemical reaction, Arrhenius equation. Kinetics of heterogeneous chemical reactions, elementary steps in heterogenous reactions. Electrochemistry – electrolytes and theory of electrolytic dissociation. Strong electrolytes - activity and activitiy coefficient, Debye-Hückel limiting law. Solubility product. Equilibrium and dissociation in solutions of weak electrolytes - dissociation of week monobasic acids and bases, hydrolysis of salt, buffer solutions. Electrolysis, transport number, electric conductivity of electrolytes. Electrochemistry potentials, electrodes, galvanic cells. Colloid chemistry - classification of dispersion systems, degree of dispersion. Selected kinetic, electrical and optical properties of colloid systems. Heterogeneous dispersion systems (lyophobic sols, emulsion, foam, aerosol).
