Chemistry

Credits: 9
Language: English
Course description
The Chemistry course takes part of Information and communication technologies engineering degree as a fundamental exam in order to comprehend matter structure at its microscopical level and extrapolate its macroscopic properties. The course intends to supply the student with the basis necessary to understand chemical phenomenon and structure, properties and transformation of matter.
Prerequisites
In order to successfully attend the course it is necessary a basic knowledge on the general law of chemistry, physic, elementary simbology and nomenclature. It is strongly suggested to at least attend Mathematical Analysis and Physics courses before approaching Chemistry.
Objectives
At the end of the course the student shall acquire notions about microscopic constitution of matter and on the origin of physical phenomenons as state transitions, electric conductivity and on polymer nature.
Program
Field of application of chemistry.
Periodic Table and periodic properties of elements. Atomic structures, Bohr model, Quantum mechanical model, Orbitals, Electron Configuration.
Chemical bonding, Ionic bonds, Covalent bonds, Molecular Orbitals, VSEPR and VB theory, Multiple bond, Metallic bonds, Band theory, Intermolecular forces.
States of matter, Gases, kinetic theory, Liquids, Solids, Phase transitions, Phase diagrams, Supercritical fluids Solutions, Gas solutions, Liquid solutions, Solid solutions properties.
Microscopies, optical microscopy, scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, atomic force microscopy.
Structures, crystalline and amorphous solids, X-ray diffraction, Elemental cells, Bravais Lattices, Ionic, covalent, metallic solids structures.
Chemical Equilibria, omogenous and heterogenous equilibria, catalized reactions, water equilibrium, pH .
Electrochemistry and systems for energy generation, Electrolysis, Faraday’s law, Electrochemical cells Interaction material-environment, degradation of metallic materials.
Organic chemistry, structure and properties of organic molecules, polymer synthesis, polymers structure and morphology, stabilization and degradation.
Book
R.H. Petrucci, W.S. Harwood, F.G. Herring, General Chemistry, Principles and Modern Applications, Edition Eighth
Exercises
For each lesson several questions, both with multiple answers and with open ones, will be proposed. The exercises shall be evaluated on the basis of their accuracy and, regarding the open answers, according to the completeness with which the object is treated.
