Compulsory Module 19: Inorganic and Macromolecular Chemistry (6.5 ECTS-Credits, 5 h)
Prerequisites for registration: none
Learning Outcome: The students are able to ¿ understand and discuss the connections between anthropogenic emissions and environmental pollution; ¿ describe the chemical mechanisms of the greenhouse effect and ozone depletion in the atmosphere; ¿ assess strategies to reduce environmental impacts from chemical processes and technologies, including regulations and standards; ¿ understand and explain basic concepts of solid state chemistry, including thermodynamics, kinetics and structure of solids; ¿ describe methods for the production and characterisation of solids, including crystal growth, gas phase synthesis and high pressure/high temperature synthesis; ¿ know and evaluate applications of solids, including superhard materials, superconductors, inorganic phosphors and micro- and nanoporous materials; ¿ Understand basic concepts of macromolecular chemistry, including degree of polymerisation, stereoregularity and reaction kinetics; ¿ describe the most important industrially relevant polymers, including their structure-property relationships, use and processing; ¿ evaluate the environmental aspects of the production and use of polymers, including biocompatible and specialty medical polymers and their stabiliser chemistry.
