The course allows the student to understand and foresee the properties and the transformations of matter.
The course is aimed at teaching the students the fundamentals of chemistry, thermodynamics and kinetics, which are essential for the description of the behaviour of materials and for the interpretation of the natural and technological transformations respectful of the environment. The course is aimed at exercising the students in the numerical calculation, through the resolution of several exercises during the lessons. The resolution of these kind of exercises is requested also in the written exam.
Atomic structure of matter (atomic models, quantum numbers, wave functions, uncertainty principle of Heisenberg, Pauli Exclusion Principle, Construction of atoms);
Periodic classification of the elements and properties of the groups;
Nuclear energy and radioactivity (radioactive emissions, half-life);
Atomic bond (covalent bond, ionic, metallic, hydrogen bond, Weak interactions);
Inorganic Nomenclature (oxides, anhydrides, hydroxides, acids, salts, acid salts);
Introduction to Organic Chemistry (hybridization of carbon, alkanes, alkenes and alkynes, functional groups, polymers);
Stoichiometry of the reactions (redox reactions and exchange);
Stoichiometry (percentage composition, molar fractions, Molarity, Normality, chemical reactions and quantitative calculations);
Crystalline solids (metallic, ionic and covalent);
Gas laws (Boyle's Law, Charles, Gay-Lussac, Avogadro, Ideal gas law, real gas law, partial pressures, volume of gas in chemical reactions);
Thermodynamics (1st and 2nd law of thermodynamics, enthalpy, entropy, free energy, heat of reaction);
Chemical equilibrium (equilibrium constant, free energy and equilibrium);
Heterogeneous equilibria (phase diagrams - one or two components, phase rule);
Chemical kinetics (reaction order, Arrhenius law);
pH and hydrolysis (acid and base definitions, calculation of pH);
Elettrochemistry (batteries, electrolysis);
Pollution of air, water and soil.

The written test consists in solving some problems, similar to those treated during the lectures, and in response to some questions of theory, always addressed during the lectures.
NB: In order to take the exam the student must register ON-LINE.
