AbstractChemistry II: Electrochemistry and redox reactions, chemistry of the elements, introduction to organic chemistry
ObjectiveGeneral base for understanding problems of inorganic and organic chemistry.
Content1. Redox reactions and electrochemistry

2. Inorganic Chemistry
Rules for nomenclature of inorganic compounds. Systematic description of the groups of elements in the periodical system and the most important compounds of these elements. Formation of compounds as a consequence of the electronoc structure of the elements.

3. Introduction to organic chemistry
Description of the most important classes of compounds and of the functional groups. Principal reactivity of these functional groups.
Stereochemistry.
Rection mechanisms: SN1- and SN2-reactions, electrophilic aromatic subtitutions, eliminations (E1 and E2), addition reactions (C=C and C=O double bonds). Chemistry of carbony and carboxyl groups.
