Course content
Importance of chemical kinetics and reaction mechanisms. Theory of reaction rates. Physical and chemical methods used for determination of rate and equilibrium constants. Study of kinetics of various types reactions (reactions of 1. and 2. order, paralel and consecutive reactions...) Acid-base catalysis Influence of medium upon chemical reactivity Linear free energy relationships

Learning activities and teaching methods
Monologic (reading, lecture, briefing)
Learning outcomes
The aim of this subject is to apprise students with physico-chemical methods used in organic chemistry for study of the chemical reactions course. The emphasis is put mainly on understanding of principles of particular methods and on correct interpretation of obtained physico-chemical quantities.
After passing the subject the student is able to choose suitable experimental technique for study of relationships between structure and reactivity of organic compounds a to evaluate obtained physico-chemical data.
Prerequisites
Basic knowledge gained in subjects: Basics of physical chemistry and Organic chemistry.

Assessment methods and criteria
Oral examination

Oral examination and written test.
