Course Description


Inorganic chemical technology includes subdivisions of the chemical industry that manufacture inorganic products on a large scale such as the heavy inorganic (chlor-alkalis, sulfuric acid, sulfates) and fertilizers (potassium, nitrogen, and phosphorus products) as well as segments of fine chemicals that are used to produce high purity inorganic on a much smaller scale. Among these are reagents and raw materials used in high-tech industries, pharmaceuticals or electronics, for example, as well as in the preparation of inorganic specialties such as catalysts, pigments, and propellants.

Course objectives:

Covers chemical industries whose raw materials are of inorganic chemistry based.
