By the end of the course, the student is expected to
- have acquired a basic knowledge of the fundamental concepts of inorganic chemistry relevant to the major
- be able to apply analytical methodology or the principles of selected instrumental methods in chemical analysis.


This course contains two independent modules.1) Inorganic chemistry module is designed to prepare students for further study in inorganic chemistry or, more generally, employment of materials science fields. The content include advanced concepts in structure, reactions, bonding, and chemical/physical properties of inorganic compounds, understanding of which is central to the study of all areas of chemistry. 2) Analytical chemistry module covers design, operational principles and application of modern instrumental methods used in chemical analysis via case studies. There is an eBook for each module, and online interactive assignments. Students will work in small groups on the topics selected. The course is suitable for distance learning.
