The course reviews the structure of the atom , which is a necessary pre-requisite in understanding the nature of chemical bonding in compounds.It provides basic knowledge about ionic, covalent and metallic bonding and explains that chemical bonding is best regarded as a continuum between the three cases.It discusses the periodicity in properties with reference to the s-and p block , which is necessary in understanding their group chemistry.
The course has the following units:
UNIT 1 : ATOMIC STRUCTURE
UNIT 2 : PERIODICITY OF ELEMENTS
UNIT 3 : CHEMICAL BONDING
UNIT 4 : COVALENT BOND
UNIT 5 : VSEPR THEORY
UNIT 6 : METALLIC BOND AND WEAK CHEMICAL FORCES
