Inorganic Chemistry II(2.0 credits)

Course Type:Basic Specialized Courses
Class Format:Lecture
Course Name : Chemistry
Starts 1 : 3 Autumn Semester
Elective/Compulsory : Compulsory
Lecturer : SAMJESKE Gabor arwed Designated Professor 

•Course Purpose
Inorganic chemistry II is the second part of a three-semester course in inorganic chemistry I, II, and III. Aim of the
three-semester course is to present principles and fundamentals of inorganic chemistry and also to show examples of
the role of inorganic chemistry in the industry, environment and every day lives.

At the end of the complete course (Inorganic Chemistry I, II, III), students should have learned a robust foundation in physical inorganic principles and also applications of the subject to catalysis and industrial processes.

•Prerequisite Subjects
Fundamentals of Chemistry I and II, Analytical Chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry I

•Course Topics
The course Inorganic Chemistry II will be structured as follows:

Class 1: Introduction to solids
Class 2: Reduction & Oxidation
Class 3: Non-aqueous media
Class 4: Hydrogen, hydrogen bonding, binary hydrides
Class 5: Alkali metals
Class 6: Alkaline earth metals
Intermediate exam
Class 7: Group 13 elements
Class 8: Group 14 elements
Class 9: Group 15 elements
Class 10 Group 15 elements (Part II)
Class 11: Group 16 elements
Class 12: Group 17 elements
Class 13: Group 18 elements, The Noble Gases
Final exam (comprehensive)

Depending on the situation a shift of topics between classes might happen

•Grade Assessment
Grading will follow the rules for G30 students who have entered NU before AY2020 (5 letter system) or since AY2020 (6 letter system):

maximum TOTAL 100% (= 100 pts)

Homework submission: 10% (= 10 points)
Intermediate exam: 40% (= 40 pts)
Final exam (comprehensive): 50% (= 50 pts)
The intermediate and final exam are mandatory!

Grades are final and calculated on the basis of the performances during class (homework submission) and in the two exams only. There will be no possibility to improve a grade after the final exam. Students who miss the final exam due to a (documented) illness, injury or other unavoidable reasons can ask the instructor.

The course will be graded "F" (failed) if less than 60% of the total points were obtained. The course will be graded as "absent" ("A" or "W") if withdrawal was applied before the intermediate exam, as stated in "course withdrawal"

Face-to-Face class and if required remote class (MS-Teams, recorded) combined.

•Contacting Faculty
Students can ask questions during class or after class, ask by email or make an appointment with the instructor
