The Course

Inorganic chemistry is the branch of concerned with the properties and behavior of inorganic compounds. This field covers all chemical compounds except the organic compounds carbon based compounds, usually containing C-H bond. Inorganic chemistry can be described broadly as the chemistry of “everything else” Many students recognize the importance of organic chemistry because of its relationship to biochemistry, but inorganic chemistry also plays important roles in today’s world . From organo metallic chemistry which bridges the gap between organic and inorganic chemistry to semiconductors involved in computer and information technology, inorganic chemistry continues to be a large, important, and rapidly growing field in which all students of chemistry should be knowledgeable . Consequently, Inorganic chemistry is one of the main branches of chemistry .Thus this course will be specified to the study of modern inorganic chemistry with emphasis on the principles and trends in the chemistry of the elements and on the essentials of structure (Solid state crystals), bonding (Ionic bond, Covalent bond) and Acid Base reactivity of inorganic systems . 
This course is also dedicate to identify and study the elements of S -block and P-block in periodic table and to know their existence in nature, their physical and chemical characteristics, their reactions in addition to their preparations in laboratory and industrially. Besides, the course aims to high light on the structure of their compounds, their usage, identification, and their advantages and disadvantages
