Curriculum Content Ionic equilibrium
A. General principle of equilibrium, equilibrium in solutions of acids and bases – strong acids and strong bases – weak acids and weak bases – polyprotic acids and bases, the equilibrium constant - Strength of acids and bases in aqueous solution in terms of Ka, Kb; OH the pH scale, pKw, pKa, pKb, etc., numerical problems, aqueous solutions of salts – hydrolysis salts – equilibrium in hydrolysis of salts – salts derives from weak acids and strong bases - salts derives from strong acids and weak bases - salts derives from weak acids and weak bases, numerical problems on hydrolysis of salts, buffer solutions – pH of a buffer solution – Henderson equations – Numerical problems, acid-base titrations – choice of indicator – neutralization of a strong acid by a strong base - neutralization of a weak acid with a strong base - neutralization of a weak base with a strong acid - neutralization of a weak acid by a weak base - neutralization of a weak acid with a strong base - neutralization of a weak base with a strong acid - neutralization of polyprotic acids with strong base.
B. Solid – solution equilibrium, the solubility and solubility product (Ksp), common ion effect, effect of H/OH– and complexing agents. Application of the concept in qualitative analysis; calculation on pH condition and precipitation. Acid-Base
i) Theories of acids – bases : Bronsted – Lowry theory, conjugate acid – base pairs, solvent system definition, periodic trends in aqua acid strength, oxoacids, anhydrous oxides, amphoterism, Lux concept, factors affecting strength of acids and bases, proton affinities, Lewis theory of acids – bases, examples of Lewis acids and bases – group characteristics of Lewis acids – reactions and properties of Lewis acids and bases – the fundamental types of reaction,complex formation as acid – base reaction; levelling effect;general strength of acid and base; the concept of Hard and Soft Acids and Bases (HSAB).
