    The goal• Introduce the students to the interactions of molecules with electric and electromagnetic field and with the methods of determination of the molecular structure based on these interactions ; • To acquire basic knowledge about the interfacial phenomena and the colloid systems ; • To accomplish students’ knowledge of the formal chemical kinetics obtained in Physical Chemistry I by studying the mechanisms of complex chemical reactions and the basic principles of chemical catalysis ; • To introduce electrochemical reactions as a class of chemical heterogeneous reactions ;
    The outcomeStudents have comprehended the theoretical basis of spectroscopic methods for determining the structure of molecules, as a basis for further study of instrumental methods. They understood the characteristics of the various interfaces and colloid systems and thus acquire basic know�ledge for studying specific chemical technologies through vocational subjects. Students also learned to describe complex chemical reactions by mathematical models, understood the impact of various factors on the reaction rate and learned the principles of catalytic processes. They understood the similarities and differences between chemical and electrochemical reactions and comprehended the basic principles of electrochemical reactions in equilibrium conditions.
    Contents of lectures• Molecular interactions with electric and electromagnetic fields (dipole moment of molecules, intermolecular interactions, basic concepts of quantum mechanics, rotations and vibrations of molecules and related spectroscopy, electronic transitions and spectroscopy in the visible and ultraviolet region of the spectrum) ; • Interfacial phenomena (surface tension, surfactants, surface films, adsorption on the solid surface, electrical properties of the interface, colloid systems, electrokinetic phenomena) ; • Chemical kinetics (reactions approaching equilibrium, parallel, consecutive and chain reac¬tions, Lindemann-Hinshelwood mechanism, collision and transition state theory, reactions in solution, homogeneous, heterogeneous and enzyme catalysis) ; • Electrochemistry (thermodynamics of the chemical equilibrium on the metal/solution interface, electrode potential, Nernst equation, types of the electrodes, electrochemical cell and its electromotive force)
    Contents of exercises• Absorption spectroscopy, optical rotation, molar refraction ; • Gibbs adsorption isotherm ; • Electrokinetic potential of colloid particles ; • Acid-base catalysis ; • Standard electrode potential and potentiometric titration
