KJE100_1

Environmental Chemistry and HES

This is the study programme for 2019/2020. It is subject to change.


This is a basic course in both chemistry, (naming of inorganic and organic chemicals, acids/bases, equilibria, aqueous solutions, electrochemistry, structural organic chemistry) and environmental science (green production, air and water pollution and cleaning, solid waste management and recycling, non-renewable and renewable energy sources, energy saving and efficiency).

Learning outcome

After completing the course the student should:
Be able to name inorganic compounds.
Have a basic knowledge of organic chemistry including naming simple compounds.
Understand and be able to use the concept of moles in reactions, solutions, gas phase.
Have understood the principles of equilibria.
Have a basic knowledge of the water-solubility of compounds.
Have a basic knowledge of redox reactions.
Have a basic knowledge of acid and bases.
Understand electrochemistry, simple batteries and the basic process of corrosion.
Have a basic knowledge of types of air and water pollution and remedial treatments, fresh water availability, treatment of rubbish and solid waste, non-renewable and renewable energies, energy saving methods and HSE/work environment issues.

Contents

Chemistry: Naming of compounds, use of the mole concept in solids, solutions and the gas phase, reaction equations, equilibrium, acids and bases, reduction/oxidation, water-solubility of compounds, electrochemistry, corrosion, organic chemistry, petrochemistry and polymers. Environmental science: Ecology, water and air pollution, water purification, wastewater treatment, energy, wastes, cleaner technology. Work environment, chemical and physical environmental factors.
