With this course, your child will be able to master the content he or she need to know for H2 A Level Chemistry topics: Introduction to transition elements.
This course on A-Level Chemistry introduction to transition elements is written based on the Singapore A Level Chemistry syllabus (9729).
In this course, we will cover physical and chemical properties of transition elements. The focus of this lesson will be on the 1st row d-block elements (i.e. scandium, titanium, vanadium, chromium, manganese, iron, cobalt, nickel, copper and zinc).
The properties of transition elements are related to their electronic configuration. I give a quick review on how to write electronic configuration in the s, p, d, f format and also go through the definition of transition elements.
Under physical properties, we will be looking at the trends in physical properties of transition elements as we move across the period.
These properties include atomic radii, ionisation energy, density, melting and boiling point.
In chemical properties, we'll look:
- why transition metals make good catalyst. We'll look at why they form both good homogeneous catalysts and heterogeneous catalysts.
- why transition metals exhibit variable oxidation states.
- why transition metals form coloured compounds
- why transition metals form complexes. We also look into what are complexes, ligands, ligand exchanges and more.
Before we end the course, I'll go through step-by-step how to answer questions in this chapter, by going through sample questions.
This is the introductory course that I conduct in my face-to-face tuition lessons. In this course, we go through the concepts tested in A Level, as well as how to apply these concepts to questions. The complete course usually takes multiple 2- hour lessons. But now, you can build up your organic Chemistry foundation on introduction to transition elements anytime, anywhere, at your own pace, and watch it any number of times you like.
