OBJECTIVES: This module aims to:

  1. Provide an understanding of underlying inorganic chemistry principles of chemical system.
  2. Apply these principles in providing the basis for a generalised chemical system that may be applied to a range of problems and issues.
LEARNING OUTCOMES:  Upon successful completion of this course students should have the ability to:

  1. Demonstrate knowledge of comprehensive inorganic chemistry and periodic table. (LO1 – C3, A3)
  2. Apply such knowledge to the basic concept of coordination compounds. (LO3 – C3, CTPS3)
  3. Differentiate the simple compounds of the elements according to the main groups of the periodic table such as hydrogen, Group 1, 2, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17 and 18 in writing and verbal. (LO4 – C4, A3, CS3)
  4.  Organize the elements of the transition and d – block metals. (LO7 – P4,LL2)
TRANSFERABLE SKILLS: Students should be able to acquire knowledge, problem solving, planning and organizational skills through a process of lectures, and group works

SYNOPSIS:

 

This course is designed to provide students with a thorough understanding of the basic principles of inorganic chemistry. The course starts with some preliminaries of inorganic chemistry, periodic table and introduction to coordination compounds. Next, the course extents to the main group elements in periodic table such as hydrogen, group 1, 2, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17 and 18 elements. At the end of the course, students will be exposed to d-block metals and transition elements
