Learning outcomes of the course unit:
The subject contains selected parts from general chemistry, inorganic and organic chemistry. Contents of the subject are intended to provide the basic concept of chemistry and systematic information inevitable to students to grasp principles of chemistry and understand relationships between building materials properties and their chemical and mineralogical composition. Students will be taught to express chemical processes by using chemical equations and make principal chemical calculations. Special attention is given to silicon compounds and silicate minerals that make up the largest class of rock forming minerals, that compose many natural and secondary raw materials in building industry and are fundamental part of silicate building materials. Included are also chapters on manufacture of selected building materials, main factors causing degradation of these materials and themes on chemistry of water, air and environmental pollution.
Course contents:
• Structure of atoms. Atomic nucleus; radioactivity, radon in buildings. Electron shell of atoms. Periodic system and classification of elements. Chemical bonds and intermolecular forces.
• States of matter. Solids. Dispersion systems. Solutions.
• Chemical reactions. Rate and equilibrium of chemical reactions. Types of chemical reactions. Thermochemistry. Heat evolution in chemical reactions of building materials.
• Selected chapters from systematic inorganic chemistry. Chemistry of water. Air.
• Chemistry of inorganic building materials and industrial wastes.
• Durability of building materials. Metals. Fundamentals of electrochemistry.
• Fundamentals of organic chemistry. Silicones.
