Students are acquainted with principles of work safety, basic laboratory equipment and basic and advanced experimental procedures (microwave/hydrothermal synthesis, self-combustion, sonochemistry). 1. Safety in a chemical laboratory. 2. Dependence of salt solubility on temperature. Dependence of reaction rate on temperature and concentration. 3. Preparation of salts by neutralization. Redox processes, reduction of copper salts. 4. Reaction of sulfur compounds. Acidobasic properties, evidence and reaction of H3BO3. 5. Preparation of salt hydrates. Determination of crystal water. 6. Determination of the relative atomic mass of the metal. 7. Reactions and evidence of inorganic cations. 8. Reactions and evidence of inorganic anions. 9. Preparation of complexes, [Cu(NH3)4]O4.H2O. 10. Preparation and properties of precious metal nanoparticles. Self-combustion synthesis of ferrites and oxides of heavy metals. 11--14. Custom preparation and characterization of the given compound (organic-inorganic compounds, ferrites).

Learning outcomes
Master: Preparation reactions, simple and complex. Separation of reaction products (crystallization, filtration, distillation, extraction etc). Determination of the composition and properties of compounds. Purification of solids. The emphasis is directed towards methodically correct and safe process, leading to both qualitatively and quantitatively best results, and towards the ability to apply theoretical knowledge for explanation of the observed phenomena.
Work safely in a chemical lab. Prepare the inorganic compound according to the instructions, including the recording of the observed phenomena. Identify inorganic ions using chemical reactions. Graphically process measured data. Create own procedure for the preparation of simple inorganic substances based on scientific literature.
