Course description and aims

This course covers fundamentals of organic chemistry such as chemical bonding and structures, and typical inorganic reactions. Basic topics include atomic structure, nature of chemical bonding, crystal structures and properties of metallic, covalent and ionic solids, acid-base, and reduction-oxidation.
As one of the science and engineering basic courses required by all Tokyo Tech students, this course provides essential contents of inorganic chemistry in chemistry field. Students will acquire general knowledge, methods and way of thinking on chemistry.

Student learning outcomes

By the end of this course, students will be able to:
1) Explain atomic structures and periodic properties of atoms.
2) Explain basic concepts of structures and bonding of inorganic compounds.
3) Explain crystal structures and properties of metallic, covalent and ionic solids.
4) Explain basic inorganic reactions, acid-base, and reduction-oxidation.

Keywords

Class flow

Basically, each class covers one chapter in the textbook according to the course schedule. Each class consists of outline of basic topics, explanation of exercise problems, and introduction of related topics. Students are required to learn outside of the classroom for preparation and review purposes under the instructor's guidance.
