Course description

Competencies and objectives


Course context for academic year 2021-22

Through the study of Chemistry and Inorganic Chemistry II subjects taught respectively in the second and third semesters of the degree in Chemistry, the student gets the fundamentals of the models used for the bonding of inorganic compounds. These theoretical concepts, together with the specific concepts which describe the properties of inorganic solids and are introduced in Inorganic Solids course, will be used to describe the bonding theories applicable to the study of inorganic solids and justify the properties (electrical, magnetic, optical) of inorganic solids (oxides, sulfides, hydrides, carbides, nitrides, fluorides, carbides). The properties of these solids give them a great industrial value so the preparative methods and the most important instrumental characterization techniques are described. The knowledge obtained in this course will be applicable in Materials Science subject, taught in the fourth year of the Degree in Chemistry.
