      The goal1. Introducing to differential and integral forms of the rate laws of irreversible homogenous chemical reactions in the p, V = const. systems. ; 2. Study of the rate laws of complex chemical reactions, such as: consecutive, reversible, parallel and chain reactions. ; 3. Introducing to experimental physical and chemical methods of investigation of reaction kinetics, the experimental data processing and the methods for determination of the reaction order. ; 4. Introducing to the basic characteristics of chemical reaction in the solutions under the conditions of diffusion or kinetic control. ; 5. Acquiring the basic knowledge about the influence of temperature on the kinetics of chemical reactions, and introducing to theoretical concepts of reaction kinetics based on collision theory, transition state theory and the theory of monomolecular reactions. ;
      The outcomeStudents have mastered the physical and chemical methods used to study the kinetics of complex chemical reactions and different methods for determination of reaction order. On the basis of the mechanism of chemical reactions they acquired necessary theoretical knowledge to carry out the differential and integral forms of the rate laws. They are trained to consider the influence of various parameters on the kinetics of complex chemical reactions by applying transition state theory.
      Contents of lectures1) Differential and integral forms of the rate laws of ireversible chemical reactions, ; 2) Differential and integral methods for determination of reaction order ; 3) Physical and chemical methods of study of the kinetics of chemical reactions ; 3) Rate laws of complex chemical reactions. ; 4) Influence of temperature on the rate of chemical reactions (the activation energy of complex reactions, and the dependence of the energy of activation on temperature) ; 5) Chemical reactions in the solutions (Kinetics of charged and uncharged particles and the influence of the chemical characteristics of the solvent) ; 6) Collision theory of bimolecular reactions ; 7) Transition-state theory and Catalysis.
      Contents of exercisesSeminars:Integral forms of the rate law for the complex consecutive reaction by applaing the steady-state and quasi-reversible approximations.
