General Chemistry 3
In-depth study of acids and bases, chemical equilibrium, solubility, chemical thermodynamics, electrochemistry and the chemistry of the transition metals. The main chemical reactivities are studied: titrations, precipitations, oxidation-reduction and electrochemical reactions. Emphasis on chemical calculations (important formula, strategy and examples).
Chemical equilibria are studied in this chapter: equilibrium-constant expression, properties of equilibrium constants, Le Chatelier’s principle, reaction quotient and the approach to equilibrium
The properties of acids and bases are studied in this chapter: ion-product constant, definition of pH and pOH, pH calculations, strong and weak acids and bases, dissociation constant, conjugate acid-base pairs, polyprotic acids
Buffer solutions and titrations are studied in this chapter: Henderson-Hasselbach equation, buffer solutions and indicators, strong acid - strong base and weak acid - strong base titrations
Solubility and precipitation reactions are studied in this chapter: solubility-product constants, common ion effect, formation of complexes, precipitation criteria and the amphoteric hydroxides
Chemical thermodynamics is studied in this chapter: spontaneity of reactions, first and second law of thermodynamics, entropy, Gibbs energy and standard Gibbs energy change, relationship between Gibbs energy and reaction quotient, Gibbs energies of formation, van’t Hoff equation
Oxidation-reduction reactions are studied in this chapter: oxidation states, redox reactions and oxidizing-reducing agents, half reactions, steps to balance equations under acidic and basic conditions, corrosion
Electrochemistry is studied in this chapter: electric energy and charge, electrochemical cells and their diagrams, Nernst equation, standard cell voltages of half reactions, the Faraday’s laws
The chemistry of the transition metals is studied in this chapter: d-block transition metal series, transition metal complexes and nomenclature, isomer cis and trans, d-orbital splittings, electronic configurations of transition metal ions, low-spin and high-spin configuration
