The module belongs among the basic subjects of the inorganic technology specialization. In the frame of this module students obtain the knowledge from the field of phase equilibria of condensed systems, chemical equilibria and electrochemistry. Emphasis is given to theoretical principles as well as to their connection with real processes in chemical industry.


1. Phase equilibrium in two component systems.
2. Phase equilibrium in three component systems. Graphical representation.
3. Phase equilibrium in four component systems. Graphical representation.
4. Cyclic crystallization between two temperatures.
5. Basic thermodynamic principles, reaction enthalpy, entropy, Gibbs energy.
6. State behavior of gases, relations for behavior of gaseous and liquid mixtures.
7. Conditions for equilibrium in systems with chemical reaction.
8. Equilibrium composition for reactions taking place in liquid and gaseous phase. Heterogeneous systems (gas - solid phase).
9. Simultaneous chemical equilibrium.
10. Adiabatic balance for chemical reaction. Limitation by equilibrium.
11. Charge transport in electrolytes. Basic laws in electrochemistry.
12. Electrode kinetics, activation overpotential.
13. Concentration overpotential. Limiting current density, Mixed electrode potential.
14. Shapes of polarization curves, hydrogen overpotential, oxygen overpotential, polarization curve of Fe in H2S04.
