Knowledge and understanding: the course is designed to provide the fundamental concepts necessary to undertake the study of Chemistry. In particular, the course aims to highlight the fundamental principles that, starting from the electronic structure of the atom, lead to the structure of molecules to supramolecular aggregates up to solids (covalent, metallic and ionic) and complex systems, as well as the energetic aspects through which the principles of thermodynamics allows the rationalization of chemical reactivity.
Applied knowledge and understanding : the course provides the tools to interpret in a formal way the knowledge acquired in basic chemistry, allowing to relate the chemical reactivity to the structure of matter and to the principles of thermodynamics.
Learning skills: in addition to the methodological tools, the course provides the student with the ability to read and analyse the basic chemical reactivity, and to read and understand basic texts.
Ability to communicate: The course aims to enable the acquisition of a language formally correct, stimulating the ability to express the contents in a clear and straightforward manner.
Making judgments: Development of relationships among the concepts of basic chemicals.
