      The goalThe main course goal is for students to master the knowledge and skills referring to chemical thermodynamics of processes and phenomena of the material systems.
      The outcomeStudents are capable for independently and creatively solve the specific and concrete practical problems and assignments such as estimation of the equilibrium composition, analysis and using of phase diagrams, prediction and calculations of thermodynamic parameters of interest for designing technological processes, establishing and determining the energy and mass balance.
      Contents of lecturesStudents are introduced to basic thermodynamic properties, fundamental equations and Maxwell relations for systems subjected to constant or variable external field (electrical, magnetic and gravitational) taking into account surface effects. They gain knowledge about ideal solution model and nonideal solutions-thermodynamic potentials, Especially, students are introduced to: phenomena appearing at surfaces and interfaces; conditions of equilibrium and general criteria for stability; equilibrium in chemical reacting systems; determination of the equilibrium composition for homogeneous and heterogeneous systems with competing reactions-method by Kandiner and Brinkley and Gibbs Energy Minimization Method; monovariant equilibrium in non-reactive and reactive systems, basics of phase diagram theory with the application to binary and multicomponent systems.
