Prerequisites (for future units)
This unit is a prerequisite for:
Inorganic and General Chemistry course is a pivotal class for the education and training of Pharmacists as it provides the knowledge required for the following chemistry classes. This class allows to acquire the scientific language and the skills required for the professional practice.
The fundamentals of chemistry will be aquired (the matter and its atomic structure, chemical bonds, inorganic compounds, nomenclature, states of matter, principles of thermodynamics, solutions, chemical reactions, chemical equilibrium, electrochemistry, the main chemical properties of the most important elements and inorganic compounds).
This course aims to provide the ground knowledge of the chemistry required for the next classes.
The learning outcomes will be, together with the acquisition of the ground knowledge of chemistry, the ability to use the scientific language, and solve problems by applying the acquired notions to real cases.
Class lessons (80 hours) on the whole program (lessons and exercises) .
During adverse situations (such as pandemic ot meteo alert), the lessons might be delivered online by following the University guidelines.
Further material on the class can be provided online (ex., Aulaweb or Teams).
The recommended books are:
- Peter Atkins, Loretta Jones, “CHIMICA GENERALE”, Ed. Zanichelli.
- Peter Atkins, Loretta Jones, Leroy Laverman, “PRINCIPI DI CHIMICA” (4th edition), Zanichelli
Other books of General and Inorganic Chemistry at university level can be used, e.g.:
- Kotz, Treichel, Townsend, Treichel “CHIMICA”, VII ed., Ed. Edises
- Brown, Lemay, Bursten, Murphy, Woodward, “FONDAMENTI DI CHIMICA”, Ed. Edises
- Casarin, Casella, D'Agostino, Filippi, Grandinetti, Purrello, Re, Speranza, "CHIMICA GENERALE E INORGANICA" a cura di M. Speranza, Ed. Edi-ermes
- Petrucci, Herring, Madura, Bissonnette, “CHIMICA GENERALE. Principi ed applicazioni moderne" (+ complete solutions manual), Ed. Piccin

All class schedules are posted on the EasyAcademy portal.
The exam consists of two compulsory parts: a written test followed by an oral test.
The written test consists in:
- a multiple choice test (30 questions, including numerical problems and chemical reactions).
The students can view their test and discuss the outcome it with the lecturer.
The minimum score to be admitted to the oral exam is 18/30.
If the score is LESS THAN 12/30, the student is not ammitted to the following written test if scheduled within the next 20 days.
The oral exam is conducted by two professors of the academic staff. It covers the whole program, and can rest for max 30 minutes.
During advense events (such as health emergency), the exams can be attended online accordingly to the University guidelines.
The exam aims to assess:
- the knowledge of the discipline (test)
- the acquisition of a correct scientific language (oral exam);
- general and specific problem-solving skills (test and oral exam).
