04 Jun Inorganic Chemistry
Chemistry has a lot of branches and sub-branches. Being a fundamental subject and having a lot of fun to offer, still, this subject fails to encourage and attract the students. At Miracle Learning Centre, we can guarantee you that with our courses, you will start loving the subject and will also be able to gradually increase your scores in Chemistry.
Categorized as a branch of chemistry, Inorganic chemistry deals with the properties and behavior of inorganic compounds. It is the study of non- carbon containing compounds and includes metals, minerals and organometallic compounds. There is an overlap between organic chemistry and inorganic chemistry. Inorganic chemistry is a distinguished field of study and chemistry tuition are available for students willing to build a future as an inorganic chemist.
Used as catalysts, pigments, coatings, medicines, fuels, inorganic compounds are used for specific purposes. They often inhibit high melting points and specific high or low electrical conductivity properties. Below are some examples of the compounds that use inorganic materials:
- Ammonia is a major inorganic chemical used in the production of nylons, fibers, plastics and explosives. It is a nitrogen source in fertilizer. Ammonia is also used in developing high end chemicals such as polyurethanes (applied in tough chemical- resistant coatings, adhesives and foams) and hydrazine (a chemical used in jet and rocket fuels).
- Chlorine: A major compound implied in the manufacturing of polyvinyl chloride (used for pipes, clothing, furniture), agrochemicals and pharmaceuticals, as well as chemicals for water treatment and sterilization.
- Titanium dioxide is seen as a white powder pigment in paints, coatings, plastics, paper, inks and cosmetics. The compound has good ultraviolet light resistance properties due to which there is a growing demand for its use in photocatalysts.
Inorganic chemists generally have limited employment opportunities ranging from mining to microchips. Being focused on a specific subject, the work area of an inorganic chemist is compact. Their job varies around understanding the analogues and behavior for inorganic elements. They focus on how the inorganic materials can be modified, separated and used. It involves developing methods to recover metals from waste. Analytical chemists specialize in the analysis of mined ores and conducting research on the type of inorganic chemicals for treating soil.
We have classes of A level chemistry tuition, O level chemistry tuition, JC chemistry tuition in Singapore, in which students are taught Chemistry through innovative models, slide shows, videos, games, etc. With this innovative technique, many struggling students in Singapore have been able to increase their grades in just a few days.
