Allgemeine und anorganische Chemie (Inorganic Chemistry I)

In this module, students are taught knowledge of basic physicochemical quantities, state of matter forms and bonding forms, as well as the fundamentals of thermodynamics, chemical equilibrium and electrochemistry. They will also become familiar with the periodic table, valence notations, chemical bonding models, the law of mass action, acid-base theories, redox reactions, and simple inorganic compounds and their properties. Furthermore, they gain knowledge about basic organic chemical substance groups and their properties as well as the ability to explain everyday chemical phenomena and put them into the context of a lesson plan.
