    AIMS AND CONTENT

    AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

    Acquire good command in the evaluation of the properties of inorganic compounds and in the knowledge of the main analytical techniques with particular reference to their applications in the field of materials.

    PREREQUISITES

    Knowledge of General Chemistry

    TEACHING METHODS

     

    Teaching organization The classic lectures (which include exercises aimed at verifying the state of learning) are alternated with innovative teaching methods aimed at active and collaborative learning by students, to make teaching, with equal efficacy, more engaging and captivating. The laboratory experiences are intended to experimentally verify some aspects of classical and instrumental analytical chemistry.

    RECOMMENDED READING/BIBLIOGRAPHY

    Reference texts
    Inorganic Chemistry:
    During the course, educational material will be published (Aul @ WEB), but integration with appropriate texts is essential.
    
    Any text at university level of "General Chemistry" commercially available or available in the library of the School of Sciences M.F.N. it is valid, provided it is recent (from this century). For each student it is more useful and productive to search, for each topic, the text in which the didactic approach is more appreciated and stimulating, rather than relying on a single textbook. Having said that, and bearing in mind that the list below is certainly not exhaustive, some titles, a non-binding selection of texts, are as follows:

    EXAMS

    EXAM DESCRIPTION

    Evaluation methods
     the exam consists of a written test and an oral test to verify the achievement of the training objectives
    
    Prerequisites: the examination of general and inorganic chemistry with laboratory is preparatory

    ASSESSMENT METHODS

    The written test consists of exercises similar to those faced during the course and descriptive questions both for the part of inorganic chemistry and for that of analytical chemistry.
    The oral test, reserved for students who have successfully completed the written test (≥18 / 30), is public. The interview aims to ascertain the possession of knowledge and the level of deepening of the subject achieved by the student. The final, single mark is calculated as the average of the written and oral tests as well as the assessment of laboratory experiences and the evaluation of the relative reports.
    The oral exam is always carried out by the teaching staff.
