Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Passing the subject, students will be able to define and describe a selected chemical by the model equations. They will be able to plan an experiment to determine the selected physico-chemical quantities as well.

Teaching methods



The subject extends the basic knowledge of physical chemistry on colloid systems. He is expected to complete basic chemistry courses in the field of thermodynamics, electrochemistry and chemical kinetics.
