Subjects to be covered in the lecture

  • Stoichometry
  • Nomenclature
  • Significant figures
  • Group properties of the periodic chart
  • Some represantative elements of the groups
  • Knowledge about the experiments to be done

2 hours of lecture per week, 1 lab of three hours
grading: 2 exams 20% each, 1 final 30%, lab work 30%

After each experiment a lab report will be handed in,these reports will be graded and constitute the lab work.
