General Chemistry for ISE students (first semester):

The lecture deals with the fundamentals of general chemistry (atomic models, periodic table, chemical bonds, chemical thermodynamics and kinetics) as well as with some aspects of the field of chemistry which are of special relevance for engineering applications (structural and functional materials).

Participants of the lecture are supposed to gain basic knowledge on chemistry in so far that they are able to understand the atomar or molecular structure of matter of different kinds. In addition, they should be able to interpret simple chemical reactions together with their energetical characteristics. Finally, they should be able to understand the correlation between the microscopic structure of matter and its macroscopic properties.
