Basic Chemistry I

Composition of matter
Composition of Matter

  • organic / inorganic

    • compound = a substance formed by chemical reaction;it consists of elements in fixed proportions

    • element = a substance that cannot be decomposed into simpler substances; it consists of atoms with a same number of protons (number of neutrons may vary)


    • atom = the smallest part of an element that can exist chemically

    • molecule = the smallest part of a chemical compoundthat can take part in chemical reaction

Composition of matter1
Composition of Matter

structure of atom

  • nucleus: protons (p+) + neutrons (n0)

  • „cloud“ of electrons (e-)

  • mass number A (= nucleon number)

  • proton number Z (= atomic number)

  • neutron number N

  • electroneutrality

  • nuclide

  • isotopes

Composition of matter2

inorganic mater

oxygen (O) 50%

silicon (Si) 25%

aluminium (Al) 7%

iron (Fe) 5%

calcium (Ca) 3%


sodium (Na)

potassium (K)

magnesium (Mg)

hydrogen (H)

titanium (Ti) 0,6%

organic mater

„compounds of carbon“

C, O, H, N

carbon (C)

oxygen (O)

hydrogen (H)

nitrogen (N)

phosphorus (P)

sulfur (S)

Composition of Matter

  • air, blood plasma


  • isotopes = atoms having the same protonnumber but different mass number(isotopes of carbon: 12C, 13C, 14C)

  • element= a substance composed of atoms havingthe same protonnumber(element consists of various isotopes)

  • nuclide = a substance composed of atoms havingthe same proton and mass numbers(substance containing only 12C = nuclide called carbon „12“)

  • atom / molecule / ion(monoatomic, polyatomic - binary, ternary)


  • nuclide: AZX

  • make groups of:

    a) isotopes

    b) the same elements

    c) the same nuclides


  • nuclide: AZX

  • make groups of:

    a) isotopes: iodine, uranium

    b) elements: iodine, uranium, radon

    c) the same nuclides: 3, 8

Calculate number of neutrons of 127I

n0 = 74


symbols and names of elements

Composition of matter3
Composition of Matter

structure of atom – arrangement of electrons

  • four quantum numbers

    orbital = a region of space in which an electron is most likely to be found

  • principal shells → energy

  • subshells → shape of orbitals

  • degenerate orbitals → space orientation

  • spin (rotation) of electrons

Shapes of orbitals

Composition of matter4
Composition of Matter

structure of atom – arrangement of electrons

  • Pauli´s exclusion principle= no two electrons in the atom can have the same set of quantum numbers

  • Hund´s rule= electron will not enter an orbital containing another electron if an empty orbital of the same energy is available

Composition of matter5
Composition of Matter

structure of atom – arrangement of electrons

  • ground / excitated state

  • valence electrons

  • radicals

  • electronegativity = a measure of the ability of an atom in a molecule to draw bonding electrons to itself

  • chemical bonds

Inorganic compounds
Inorganic Compounds

Oxides anion: O-II

  • acid-forming: nonmetal / oxygen

    • use multiple prefixes (mono, di, tri,...)

Hydroxides anion: (OH)-1

  • basic properties (pH > 7)

  • strong or weak hydroxides

1) oxygen free acids

hydro-...................-ic acid

HF, HCl, HBr, HI, H2S, HCN (in aqueous solutions)


  • monoprotic / diprotic acids

Inorganic compounds4
Inorganic Compounds

2) oxoacids

  • the highest oxidative state per-.....-ic acid

  • higher (or only) oxidative state -ic acid

  • lower oxidative state -ous acid

  • the lowest oxidative state hypo-...-ous acid


    -ic acid → -ate

    -ous acid→ -ite

Inorganic compounds5
Inorganic Compounds


are formed by neutralization:

acid + hydroxide → salt + water

cation: metal or NH4+ derived from the hydroxide(= cation of the hydroxide)

anion:oxygen-free or polyatomic anionderived from the acid (= anion of the acid)
