Hours of instruction:

Weekly: four hours of labwork (0+0+4)


Mastering experimental techniques which are used in inorganic chemistry. Introducing students to the physical and chemical properties of elements (some groups of the Periodic Table of Elements) and their compounds by doing the selected experiments. The syllabus of experimental classes corresponds to the syllabus of the course Inorganic Chemistry 1. The focus of the final class sessions is the independent synthesis of five inorganic preparations with the aim of training students for independent laboratory work.


After they have successfully passed the exam, students will be able to:

  • carry out characteristic reactions of elements by the groups of the Periodic Table using some familiar procedures and standard laboratory apparatus and equipment;
  • show confidence and autonomy in laboratory work, including the proper handling of substances;
  • analyze and interpret the data obtained by conducting experiments;
  • use their knowledge of the classification of elements and their inorganic compounds to predict certain properties including stability, solubility, redox properties and reactivity.

Teaching methods:

Experimental exercises with theoretical postulates.

Extracurricular activities:

Preparing for practical classes, preparing for doing problems and tasks.


Main coursebooks:

  • T. Todorović, V. Medaković: Praktikum iz neorganske hemije, Hemijski fakultet, Beograd, 2013. ISBN 978-86-7220-051-5
  • Nenad Juranić: Zbirka zadataka iz opšte hemije, Studentski trg, Beograd, 2004.

Supplementary coursebooks:

Additional material:

Course activities and grading method


10 points (4 hours a week)


1. Halogens.

2. Oxygen.

3. Sulfur.

4. Nitrogen and phosphorus.

5. Silicon, tin and lead.

6. Manganese and chromium.

7. Copper and silver.

8. Complex compounds.

9-13. Performing five inorganic preparations.

14. An additional class session in which students can make up for the classes they have missed.

Note: Students have to attend laboratory classes. Each laboratory exercise has to be done and defended. The points for pre-exam activities are assigned by the assistant based on the knowledge students demonstrate while presenting their work in laboratory classes (the maximum number of points 8 x 1 = 8 points for the first eight exercises and 2 points for inorganic preparations).


30 points


Students do two progress tests which contain problems from the areas covered within experimental practical classes.

Written exam:

60 points
