  • General Chemistry (lecture, 3 SWS)
Workload:
  • 180 Hours private studies
  • 120 Hours in-classroom work
Contents of teaching:
  • Lectures: Roles of Environmental and Health-Saftey and the guidelines of the GSP
  • The structure of atoms and the periodic table of the elements
  • Chemical bonds, molecules and Ions
  • Reaction equations and stoichiometry
  • The threedimensional structure of molecules: From the VSEPR model to molecular orbitals
  • Special properties of water
  • Chemical equilibrium
  • Acids and bases
  • Redox reactions and electrochemistry
  • Complexes and metal-ligand bonds
  • Interactions between mater and radiation - Molecular spectroscopy
  • Thermodynamics
  • Chemical kinetics
  • Exercises:
  • Students discuss problems covering all topics of the lectures on the black board
  • Practical course:
  • Students work self-actingly and independently with respect to the environment and occupational health and safety in the handling of hazardous materials (according to the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS) and with regard to the rules of GSP of the University of Lübeck and of the DFG-guidelines). Topics:
  • Basics principles and laboratory techniques
  • Salts and their aqueous solutions
  • Acids, bases and buffer
  • Redox reactions
  • Katalysis, metal-ligand complexes and chemical equilibrium
  • Laboratory test
Qualification-goals/Competencies:
  • Students have a fundamental knowledge of general and inorganic chemistry, as well as a primary knowledge of the properties of inorganic materials.
  • They understand the fundamental concepts of general and inorganic chemistry and can apply them to reactions and general scientific topics.
  • Because of their self-acting and independent work in the practical course they have fundamental practical skills to perform simple experiments and analyzes in the chemical laboratory, with respect to the environment and occupational health and safety in the handling of hazardous materials (according to the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS) and with regard to the rules of Good Scientific Practice (GSP) of the University of Lübeck and of the DFG-guidelines).
  • Students are able to perform chemical calculations from all subareas of the course.
  • They are able to observe, document, interpret and present results from basic chemical experiments and analyzes (laboratory notebook, written protocol , oral examination) with regard to the roles of GSP of the University of Lübeck and of the DFG-guidelines. This includes the self-dependent handling of scientific topics with regard to their chemical backgrounds.
  • They have team competence in laboratory work as well as in writing and communication.
  • Students can transfer the acquired knowledge to problems of other branches in chemistry and related sciences and are thus able to participate in continuative courses.
