General Chemistry I. Matter
Proferssor_ Andrei Zagorodni

The course will be taught within the subject "General Chemistry. Basic Chemical Principles". It is complimentary to the second part "General Chemistry II. Chemical Reactions". These two courses are recommended to be studied as a sequence however the strict requirements is not imposed. There are no special pre-requirements for the students subscribing for the course. Hence, students having different backgrounds can attend it. @@The two courses cover all main chemical principles. A student successfully competed the course will be able to say: "I know and understand what is chemistry, chemical terminology, basic chemical approaches".
