VL - Lecture

Field of studies

Chemistry and Chemical Technology, Biological Chemistry, Naturwissenschaftliche Grundlagen der Technik (NaWi-Tec – only in elective modul „General Chemistry and Polymer chemistry“)


The lecture deals with the structure of matter and the properties resulting thereof. In the further course chemical reactions and the chemical equilibrium are considered in their many facets. In addition to these concepts, which are essential for the entire further study, the introduction of the Lewis acid-base model already enables the expansion of the classic binding models and first insights into complex chemistry.


Introduction, Atomic structure, Periodic Table of Elements, Chemical Bonds, Intermolecular Interactions, Thermochemistry, Redox reactions, Chemical Equilibrium, Acids and Bases, Fundamentals of Coordination Chemistry, Solubility, Coupled Equilibria
