CHEM 102

2 lecture hours
2 exercise hours
2 practical hours
6  ECTS credits



  • The course introduces to the modern atomic models including a description of chemical bonding in molecules, metals, and ionic solids. The principles underlying the periodic table of elements are derived. A further section is devoted to the stoichiometry of chemical reactions. Finally, an introduction to electrochemistry chemistry and chemical kinetics are given.


  • The students will get an overview on the general principles of chemistry. The course will allow them to drive macroscopic properties of molecules from their structures and electronic properties. Furthermore, the students will be able to balance chemical equations and to understand the basic applications of chemical reactions such as reactions of lead?acid battery.
