Learning objectives
The student will be able to predict properties and the chemical reactivity of an element based on its position in the Periodic Table. He will know and be able to distinguish substances in acids and bases, to classify chemical reactions such as acid-base or redox reactions. The student will learn how to qualitatively and quantitatively assess the results of an equilibrium reaction; knowing how to solve simple stoichiometric exercises.
The students are also expected to acquire basic concepts of organic chemistry through identification of functional groups and understanding some organic transformations of interest to natural sciences. Emphasis on the importance of organic compounds in health, environment, and society will be highlighted.
Expected learning outcomes
Students will acquire:
· Knowledge of the electronic structure and the chemical properties of the elements according to their position in the periodic system.
· Ability to evaluate the chemical reactivity of a chemical compound
· Basic concepts of electronic structure enabling them to solve problems from various areas of organic chemistry, including stereochemistry, reactivity patterns and synthesis.
Course syllabus and organization

A - L

Responsible
Lesson period
year
The lessons and exercises will be held on the Zoom platform, for the most part they will be in synchronous mode based on the timetable of the first semester and can also be followed asynchronously because they are registered and left available to students on the Ariel platform.
There are also 12 hours of face-to-face exercises (if allowed); all information will be made available on the Ariel website of the course.
Course syllabus
The course aims to provide students with the general basics of chemistry through the study of the nature of the elements and their compounds, the examination of the chemical reactions and the parameters associated with them. Starting from the atomic structure of matter, the course introduces the fundamental laws of stoichiometry also illustrated through exercises. The course will allow the student to acquire the basic notions of inorganic and organic chemistry necessary to understand processes, even complex, more specific than the degree course.
- The foundations of the atomic and molecular theory
- Atom's structure (atomic theory, orbitals, electronic configurations)
- Periodic properties (atomic radius, ionization energy,electronic affinity, electrpnegativity)
- Chemical bond (ionic, covalent, metallic, molecular geometry)
- Chemical reactions: salification, exchange and oxidation-reduction (redox) reactions.
- Aggregation states of the matter: gases, liquids, solids
- Solutions: (general properties, different ways to indicate the concentrations, colligative properties)
- Chemical equilibrium (Homogeneous and Heterogeneous equilibria, Equilibrium constant, Le Chatelier principle)
- Ionic equilibria (Solubility-product. The nature of the acids and of the bases.)
- Thermodinamics ( heat , work, Internal energy , enthalpy. Entropy, Gibbs free energy)

Assessment methods and Criteria
Two written exams for the two parts of the course wil separately held in order to evaluate the acquired knowledge.
The exams will be in the presence (if possible) or will be carried out on the Zoom platform maintaining the same structure of the in presence examination.

The General chemistry exam consist of a written test lasting 120 minutes, with 6 exercises and 3 theory questions (the theory part can be replaced with multiple choice quizzes).

The Organic chemistry exam consists of a written test with 12 exercises to be solved within 75 minutes.
