At the end of the course of General and Inorganic Chemistry, the student is expected to acquire knowledge and understanding of basic general chemistry including:
-fundamentals of general chemistry (law of conservation of mass, atomic structure, the periodic table, element properties and classification, nature of the ionic and polar covalent bond)
-hints of inorganic nomenclature, molar mass, the balance of reactions
-state functions and laws of thermodynamics
-states of matter, fundamental laws of intermolecular, characteristics of the solutions and colligative properties
-definition of acids and bases (strong acids and bases, weak acids and bases, buffer solutions)
-concepts of chemical kinetics theory.
The student must demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the basic concepts of general chemistry and applying them both in solving problems (stoichiometry, balancing of reactions, thermodynamic calculations) and in the description of the subjects under consideration.
The course aims at the achievement of learning skills and communication skills by employing appropriate language to both specialized and non-specialized audience.
At the end of the course of Organic Chemistry, the student is expected to acquire knowledge and understanding of basic organic chemistry.
In particular, the expected learning outcomes are:
- Knowledge and understanding of the basic functional groups and applying them to the classification of simple organic molecules;
- Knowledge, understanding and applying of the structural representation of simple organic molecules to visualize them in the three-dimensional space;
- Knowledge and understanding of basic principles of organic reactions (chemical equilibria, structural theory, acids and bases, nucleophiles and electrophiles);
- Knowledge and understanding of the relationship between the structure of simple organic molecules and their physical properties, in particular their solubility in aqueous or non-aqueous solvents;
- Knowledge and understanding of the relationship between the structure of simple organic molecules and their reactivity;
- Knowledge of the international rules for the nomenclature of organic compounds and applying them to assign the chemical name to unknown molecules.
At the end of the course, the student is expected to acquire knowledge and understanding of basic general and organic chemistry to know and understand the biochemical and bio-organic processes underlying the animal production sciences.
Also student is expected to be able to apply knowledge and understanding to solve practical problems and to be able to communicate the course contents to both specialized and non-specialized audience by employing appropriate language.
